Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Roughed up by Nats
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivero allowed five earned runs in one-third of an inning Sunday against the Nationals.

He gave up four hits (including a homer) and a walk, throwing only 10 of 21 pitches for strikes. Rivero has pitched well for Pittsburgh, but struggled against his former mates. Tony Watson will likely close for the Bucs in 2017, but Rivero and Juan Nicasio could also force their way into the picture.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Perfect in new digs
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivero struck out three batters in 1.1 scoreless innings against the Dodgers on Sunday.

Since coming to the Pirates as part of the Mark Melancon trade, he hasn't allowed an earned run in seven outings covering seven innings. Rivero has fanned 13 batters over the stretch, showing promise that a late-inning role could be on the horizon.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Makes good first impression
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero made his Pittsburgh debut Sunday, allowing one hit and one walk in a scoreless relief inning. He struck out two batters.

The hard-throwing lefty will look to add to his 16 holds with the Bucs, pitching mostly in the seventh inning and occasionally in the eighth. GM Neal Huntington mentioned his potential to close down the road, but that won't likely happen (barring injury) with Tony Watson under team control in 2017.

Pirates' Felipe Rivero: Traded to Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was traded to the Pirates on Saturday along with Taylor Hearn in exchange for Mark Melancon, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

The 25-year-old Rivero posted a 4.53 ERA in 47 appearances out of the Nationals' bullpen this season, but the peripherals suggest he's pitched far better than that figure would indicate, with his FIP checking in at 3.26. He averages better than 95 mph with his fastball, throwing a slider and a changeup as its complements, and has seen a three percent increase in swinging strikes from a year ago (to 14.5 percent). Rivero won't close for Pittsburgh anytime soon, but the lefty figures to see some high-leverage work in front of Neftali Feliz and Tony Watson.

Nationals' Felipe Rivero: Picks up 12th hold Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivero struck out two in a perfect eighth inning Tuesday to notch his 12th hold of the season in a win over the Phillies.

He had some stumbles earlier in May, but Rivero has now reeled off eight straight scoreless appearances with a 9:0 K:BB over 7.1 innings during that stretch. He's settled in as one of Jonathan Papelbon's primary setup men, and Rivero should be a solid source of holds moving forward.
