  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Out with fractured wrist

    Rivera was placed on the 60-day injuredlist Sunday with a fractured left wrist.

    Rivera was scratched from Saturday's lineup with what was initially labeled forearm soreness, but he's now been diagnosed with a fractured wrist. It's unclear if the 26-year-old will require surgery, but he'll have four-plus months to recover before the start of spring training in February.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Scratched from Saturday's lineup

    Rivera was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Giants due to mild soreness in his left forearm.

    Rivera was slated to start at third base Saturday but was removed from the lineup less than an hour before the start of the game. Although his forearm soreness is described as mild, it's not yet clear whether he'll be available off the bench or whether he'll be able to return for Sunday's series finale. Buddy Kennedy will take over at the hot corner and bat sixth Saturday.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Returns to bench role

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Houston.

    After making starts in four consecutive games last week, Rivera will now find himself on the bench for the fourth straight contest. He looks set to finish the season as a short-side platoon player for the Diamondbacks.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Fills in for Rojas

    Rivera started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a sacrifice fly in Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Dodgers.

    Rivera was surprisingly in the lineup against right-hander Dustin May, as Arizona manager Torey Lovullo benched primary third baseman and left-handed hitting Josh Rojas because of recent defensive inconsistency, according to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. Rojas is working on technique with infield coach Tony Perezchica and may be held out of Thursday's series finale against left-hander Julio Urias, which means another start for the righty-hitting Rivera.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Launches solo homer

    Rivera went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-0 win over San Diego.

    Rivera and Ketel Marte both homered in the fourth inning, which was enough for Arizona. It was Rivera's sixth home run in 30 games with the Diamondbacks. He's typically in the lineup against left-handers, a role which fits his profile considering his .882 OPS against LHP this season compared to a .651 OPS against righties.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Back on bench Wednesday

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.

    Rivera had started at third base in each of the last four contests, but two of those starts came while the Diamondbacks were opposing left-handed pitchers. Though he's produced a solid .768 OPS since joining the Diamondbacks as a trade-deadline pickup from the Royals, Rivera hasn't quite produced well enough to hold down an everyday role in an Arizona lineup that's been running hot over the past several weeks.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Tallies three hits Friday

    Rivera went 3-for-3 with a double, a run and an RBI during Friday's 2-1 win over the Brewers.

    The Diamondbacks were unable to generate much offense during Friday's low-scoring matchup, and Rivera was the only player on the team to record multiple hits. The 26-year-old has settled for a short-side platoon role recently, but he's crossed the plate in eight of his last nine games. Over that stretch, he's hit .294 with a home run, three doubles, nine runs and seven RBI.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Sits against righty again

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers.

    The righty-hitting Rivera finds himself on the bench for the Diamondbacks' third straight matchup with a right-handed starter (Brandon Woodruff). Even though he finished August with an excellent .932 OPS in 20 games, Rivera looks like he'll be the odd man out for an everyday role following the promotion of top prospect Corbin Carroll. With Carroll, Alek Thomas and Daulton Varsho expected to compose Arizona's outfield versus right-handed pitching more often than not, Jake McCarthy is expected to poach designated-hitter duties from Rivera.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Resting Tuesday

    Rivera is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

    Rivera has been on a nice run at the plate, but he will be held out Tuesday with the Diamondbacks facing a tough right-hander in Aaron Nola.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Bows out of starting nine

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

    Sergio Alcantara will get a turn at third base while Rivera rests for the series finale. Rivera had started in each of the Diamondbacks' last seven games and went 6-for-26 with a home run, five walks, two doubles, five runs and five RBI over that stretch.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Hits two-run homer

    Rivera went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 7-2 win over the White Sox.

    Rivera knocked in Josh Rojas on a second-inning shot to put the Diamondbacks up 6-0. In 17 games since being acquired from the Royals, Rivera has gone 17-for-61, taking his batting average from .237 to .247 in the process. During that span, he also has five homers, including his two-run blast Friday. With second baseman Ketel Marte being used as a DH only after aggravating a balky hamstring, Rivera is filling in at third base while Josh Rojas handles second.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Resting Thursday

    Rivera is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants.

    Rivera started the last five games, but he went just 2-for-15 (.133) over the last four, so manager Torey Lovullo decided to hold him out Thursday. Stone Garrett will enter the lineup in Rivera's place.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Knocks pair of solo shots

    Rivera went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs and a walk in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Rockies.

    Rivera is picking up his power pace -- he's hit safely in his last six games, logging four homers and three doubles while going 9-for-19 (.474). For perspective, he had all of six long balls in 63 contests with the Royals to begin the year. The third baseman is up to a .253/.304/.466 slash line with 10 homers, 28 RBI, 32 runs scored, 11 doubles and three triples through 237 plate appearances this year. Rivera sees roughly half of the playing time at the hot corner, while the more defensively versatile Josh Rojas gets the rest of it when the latter does play third, though that balance could change if the former stays productive at the plate.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Enjoys big game Thursday

    Rivera 3-for-5 with a home run, two doubles, two runs and three RBI in Thursday's 9-3 win against the Pirates.

    Rivera hit out of the second spot in the order and came through with a big performance for Arizona, smacking a solo homer in the fourth inning and a two-run double in the seventh. He added another double in the eighth frame for his first three-hit effort of the campaign. Since joining the Diamondbacks from the Royals on Aug. 1, Rivera is slashing .368/.429/.842 with two homers, three doubles and four RBI through six contests.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: First homer with new team

    Rivera went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a walk in Sunday's 6-4 win over the Rockies.

    Rivera put Arizona on the comeback trail with his sixth-inning solo shot. It was his first homer and second hit in three games since he was traded from the Royals last Monday. The righty-hitting third baseman has started twice in the team's last five contests, though the Diamondbacks have yet to face a southpaw since he joined them. Rivera owns a .238/.290/.413 slash line with seven homers, 23 RBI, 28 runs scored, nine doubles and three triples through 221 plate appearances this year. The versatility of regular third baseman Josh Rojas could afford Rivera slightly more than just a short-side platoon role.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Added to Arizona roster

    The Diamondbacks recalled Rivera from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Rivera was playing at the Triple-A level when he was acquired from the Royals on Monday, but he will get a chance to show what he can do with his new club immediately. Josh Rojas has been playing third base nearly every day since mid-May, so it remains to be seen how much playing time Rivera will see there.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Expected to join MLB roster

    Arizona general manager Mike Hazen said Rivera is expected to report to the major-league club, but the logistics of that have yet to be determined, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Rivera gives the lefty-heavy Diamondbacks a right-handed hitter that will likely "see a lot of starts against lefties," either at third base or designated hitter, according to the general manager. Rivera has hit well at Triple-A -- a combined .291 average with 22 home runs over 330 at-bats in 2021 and 2022 -- but is batting just .243 with seven home runs over 288 at-bats in the majors. The minor-league numbers are inflated, given that his home park in Omaha is beneficial for right-handed batters.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Ends up with Diamondbacks

    Rivera was traded to the Diamondbacks from the Royals on Monday in exchange for pitcher Luke Weaver, John reports.

    Rivera posted a .683 OPS over 211 big-league plate appearances this season but also a .908 mark over 85 PA with Triple-A Omaha, so the Diamondbacks decided to pick him up in an effort to shore up their infield depth.

  • Royals' Emmanuel Rivera: Sent down Friday

    Rivera was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

    Rivera saw an uptick in playing time recently, starting four of the last five games while going 4-for-16 with two runs, an RBI and six strikeouts during that time. However, he'll head to the minors after Salvador Perez (thumb) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
