Mets' T.J. Rivera: Draws start at third base Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera will start at third base Wednesday against the Marlins, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

First baseman Lucas Duda is receiving the evening off with lefty Jeff Locke starting for the Marlins, so Wilmer Flores will man that position while opening up the hot corner for Rivera. It's only the second start in the last six games for Rivera, who had been seeing regular time at the keystone prior to that before Asdrubal Cabrera (thumb) was activated from the disabled list June 23.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Delivers four-hit performance Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 4-for-4 with a double and a run in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Nationals.

Rivera has produced three multi-hit performances in five games since taking over as the Mets' everyday second baseman after Neil Walker (hamstring) landed on the disabled list. Given the limited pop and speed in his profile, Rivera isn't expected to be much of an asset in the counting stats categories, but he should help buoy a fantasy team's batting average. The 28-year-old has exhibited strong contact-hitting skills throughout his career and has struck out in only 14.2 percent of his plate appearances this season, a mark well above the league average.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Starting at second base Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera, who is starting at second base Thursday against the Nationals, is expected to see the bulk of playing time there while Neil Walker (hamstring) is sidelined, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Rivera shifted over to second base Wednesday after Walker was removed from the game, so he seemed to be an obvious option to take over at the keystone. With Walker expected to miss several weeks, the 28-year-old -- who owns a .271/.322/.411 slash line with two homers in 119 plate appearances this season -- could be a solid pickup for those in need of a middle infielder.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Rejoins big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera was recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

With Asdrubal Cabrera heading to the DL with a thumb injury, Rivera was called back to the Mets to offer some more infield depth. The 28-year-old has held his own in the majors this season, slashing .255/.310/.402 with two homers and 13 RBI in 102 at-bats (40 games). He should see a few starts around the infield while Cabrera is out.

Mets' T.J. Rivera: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas following Saturday's doubleheader, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

There was simply no longer room for Rivera on the Mets' bench with Yoenis Cespedes returning to action Saturday. Rivera had seen his at-bats largely dry up over the past several weeks -- he's logged only 12 plate appearances since May 25.
