The Cubs transferred Rivas (finger) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Rivas had already been ruled out for the season after landing on the 10-day IL on Sept. 21 with an injury to his right middle finger. His move to the 60-day IL frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for minor-league catcher Tyler Payne, who will serve as the backup to starter Erick Castillo in Sunday's season finale in St. Louis. The transaction won't affect Rivas' recovery timeline, as the 25-year-old rookie is expected to be in line for a relatively normal offseason.
Rivas (finger) will miss the rest of the season after being placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Rivas is eligible to return for the final few games of the season, but the tendon injury in his right middle finger will instead end his campaign. The 25-year-old appeared in 18 games during his first taste of big-league action and hit .318/.388/.409 with one homer, three RBI and seven runs. Assuming he's healthy in time for spring training, Rivas should have a chance to earn a spot on Chicago's Opening Day roster in 2022.
Rivas was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with an injury to a tendon in his right middle finger, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Rivas was penciled in to start in the outfield Tuesday versus the Twins, but he'll instead move to the injured list. The 25-year-old will be eligible to return before the end of the season, but it would only be for the last few games of the campaign.
Rivas went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies. Rivas took Philadelphia starter Kyle Gibson deep in the fifth inning for his first MLB home run in his 13th career game. The 25-year-old made his second straight start Tuesday and should see increased playing time in the outfield moving forward with Jason Heyward (concussion) landing on the 7-day injured list. Rivas posted an .816 OPS at Triple-A this year across 58 games and is worth a look if he's able to carry over some success in the majors.
Rivas is starting in right field Tuesday against the Phillies. Rivas will draw his second consecutive start and should be in line for increased playing time in the outfield after Jason Heyward (concussion) was placed on the 7-day injured list Tuesday. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut Aug. 29 and has hit .280 with a double, five runs and an RBI in 12 appearances since then.
