Armando Rivero struggled a great deal through his two spring appearances, giving up four hits and three earned runs in 1.2 innings pitched for the Chicago Cubs .
Posting a 16.20 spring ERA, the 28-year-old failed to impress after receiving an invitation to spring training from the Cubs in January. As a result, Rivero will be hard-pressed to find his way to the big league club this season.
Armando Rivero received an invitation to spring training Friday.
Rivero spent 2015 with Triple-A Iowa, putting up a 3.16 ERA with 53 strikeouts in 57 innings. The 27-year-old is going to have a tough time cracking the Chicago Cubs ' bullpen despite the solid year last season, so there's a good likelihood that he'll end up in Triple-A for much of the season once again.
