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.
