      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Makes second straight start at SS

      Yadiel Rivera went 1-for-3 in Monday's loss to the White Sox.With Miguel Rojas (shoulder) and JT Riddle (forearm) both sidelined, Rivera is all the Miami Marlins have left at shortstop, and the 27-year-old has gone 1-for-7 while starting the last two games. Rojas may not be out for long, but until he's cleared to return, Rivera and his .478 career OPS will remain in the lineup.

      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Getting second straight start

      Yadiel Rivera will start at third base and bat seventh Sunday against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.Rivera will draw a second straight start as the Miami Marlins wrap up their series in Atlanta, but he's done little to make a case for receiving regular action once the second half begins. Since being recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on June 14, Rivera has gone 5-for-34 with 13 strikeouts.

      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Recalled from Triple-A

      Yadiel Rivera was recalled from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.The 27-year-old was called up to provide infield depth with Martin Prado (hamstring) headed to the 10-day injured list Friday. Rivera carries a slash line of .318/.333/.516 with 11 home runs and 34 RBI through 61 games with Triple-A New Orleans this season, but it's worth noting he struggled at the major-league level in 2018, recording a batting average of just .173 in 160 plate appearances. It's unclear if Rivera will stay with the Miami Marlins once Prado is ready to return, but he'll start at third base and bat seventh Friday.

      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Contributes as pinch hitter in win over Nats

      Yadiel Rivera entered Sunday's win over the Nats in the seventh inning as a pinch hitter, going 1-for-1 with a run scored and a stolen base.The 26-year-old is back to coming off the bench now that Martin Prado has rejoined the lineup, and Rivera's .202/.316/.253 slash line on the season may keep him there even if injuries open up playing time around the Miami Marlins' infield again. He currently qualifies at second base, third base and shortstop in most leagues and could add first base and outfield to his portfolio in the second half, but even in deep NL-only leagues, there's little reason to carry him on a fantasy roster.

      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Struggles on defense in Sunday's start

      Yadiel Rivera went 1-for-3 with two walks in Sunday's win over the Reds, but he also committed his first two errors of the season.The 26-year-old has seen little action this season behind Miguel Rojas at shortstop, and Rivera's anemic .148/.258/.148 slash line in 31 plate appearances and unreliable defense aren't doing anything to change that. Expect him to be replaced on the roster by JT Riddle as soon as the Miami Marlins are confident Riddle is fully recovered from his shoulder injury.

      Marlins' Yadiel Rivera: Lands on Opening Day roster

      The Miami Marlins selected Yadiel Rivera's contract from Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports.Rivera slashed .304/.373/.457 through 51 plate appearances this spring, but the short sample was enough for the non-roster invitee to catch on with the big club as a reserve infielder. The 25-year-old will provide organizational depth on a team that is currently down two infielders in J.T. Riddle (shoulder) and Martin Prado (knee). To make room on the 40-man roster, Austin Nola was designated for assignment, and Brett Graves was moved to the 60-day disabled list.
