Braves' Armando Rivero: Placed on 10-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) has been placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to March 30, MLB.com reports.

Rivero has yet to show off his skills for the Braves since being acquired via the Rule 5 draft, as the reliever hasn't made an appearance all spring. Due to the date of the transaction, Rivero would be eligible to return in just over a week, though it's unlikely the right-hander is ready at that time.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Likely to begin season on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) is likely to begin the season on the DL, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The Rule 5 pick hasn't appeared in a single spring training game for Atlanta, and his shoulder issues also caused him to cut short his winter league stint, so this doesn't appear to be something that will resolve itself any time soon. Rivero will need to spend at least 90 days on the active roster to lose his Rule 5 status this season and remain in the Braves' organization, but that still gives the club plenty of time to let him rehab and strengthen his shoulder on the DL before being activated.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Not yet cleared to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) hasn't been cleared to throw yet, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The report runs contrary to a statement given by manager Brian Snitker a few weeks ago, but it appears Rivero is still dealing with soreness suffered in the Venezuelan Winter League. The Rule 5 draft pick has posted intriguing numbers in the minors over the past few seasons, including a 2.13 ERA and a 105:35 K:BB ratio with Triple-A Iowa last year, though it seems he will begin 2017 recovering from the nagging ailment.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Cleared to continue throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) has no signs of structural damage in his shoulder and was cleared to continue throwing Saturday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The shoulder injury was never expected to be anything serious, but Rivero still hasn't been given a timetable for a return. It appears he'll just need some rest before he is ready to return, but the righty remains day-to-day until the team specifies otherwise. The 29-year-old posted a 2.13 ERA with 105 strikeouts in 67.2 innings with Triple-A Iowa last season.

Braves' Armando Rivero: To be evaluated Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) will be evaluated by doctors Saturday to get a better understanding of his condition.

Rivero first encountered soreness in his shoulder while pitching in Venezuela this winter, and the Braves remain hopeful he will only need a couple weeks of rest before returning. The Rule 5 draft pick was cleared to begin playing catch this past week, but the medical evaluation should provide a better sense of the situation. The right-hander is an interesting prospect; he posted a 2.13 ERA and 105 strikeouts in 43 games with Triple-A Iowa last season.
