Rivera was optioned to minor-league camp Wednesday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Rivera opened 2016 with the Brewers as a utility infielder, but that job has since been claimed by Hernan Perez, so the team decided to send Rivera to the minors in order to get regular at-bats. Rivera figures to be the primary shortstop for Triple-A Colorado Springs.
