Braves' Armando Rivero: Selected by Braves in Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was selected by the Braves with the fifth pick in the Rule 5 draft Thursday.

The 28-year-old righty is interesting in the sense that he has been pitching at Triple-A for the past three seasons, notching impressive numbers that suggest he might be ready for the big leagues. He posted a 2.13 ERA and 105:35 K:BB in 67.2 innings last season. However, the fact that the Cubs left him unprotected suggests that his upside is limited. The Braves will have to keep Rivero on the active roster all season, otherwise he will be exposed to waivers and offered back to the Cubs.

Cubs' Armando Rivero: Struggles in spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Armando Rivero: Receives invitation to spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
