Rivera signed with the Rangers as a non-roster invitee Friday.
Rivera hit a poor .183/.258/.217 in 34 games for the Marlins last season. That translates to a 33 wRC+, though that's actually stronger than his career 28 wRC+ over parts of five seasons.
Rivera was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Thursday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Rivera was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Tuesday, but after failing to draw interest while on waivers, he'll head to Triple-A.
Rivera was designated for assignment by Miami on Tuesday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Rivera will be subjected to waivers after hitting just .183 with three RBI over 34 games this season with the Marlins. Hector Noesi was promoted to the big leagues in a corresponding move.
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 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.
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 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.
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 Marlins once Prado is ready to return, but he'll start at third base and bat seventh Friday.
Rivera was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Tuesday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The utility man hit just .173/.269/.216 across 111 games (160 plate appearances) with the Marlins in 2018.
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 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.
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 Marlins are confident Riddle is fully recovered from his shoulder injury.
The Marlins selected 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.
Rivera signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Marlins on Friday, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Rivera only played in one major-league game with the Brewers this past season, and spent a majority of his time with Triple-A Colorado Springs. He slashed .218/.282/.314 with the Sky Sox during 107 games, and will likely serve as organizational infield depth for the Marlins while playing in Triple-A once again in 2018.
Rivera cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday, Jim Goulart of Brewerfan.net reports.
While there weren't any teams willing to use a 40-man roster spot on Rivera, he will likely generate some interest as a minor-league free agent this offseason. He'll likely never be much of a contributor on offense, but his defensive versatility carries real-life value at the Triple-A level.
Rivera was designated for assignment by Milwaukee on Friday.
Rivera loses his place on the 40-man roster after earning just one appearance with the Brewers this season. The infielder slashed .218/.282/.314 with five home runs and 43 RBI during 107 games with Triple-A Colorado Springs in 2017.
Rivera was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Tuesday.
The infielder made just one appearance after being called up to the big leagues. With the Brewers in need of catching depth more than infield depth at the moment, Rivera will return to the minors. His positional versatility could help him find his way back to Milwaukee when the team's catching situation is sorted out once again.
Rivera was called up by the Brewers on Thursday.
The team placed Eric Sogard on the disabled list with an ankle injury prior to Thursday's game against the Cubs, bringing Rivera up for his first major-league call-up of the season. Rivera will provide infield depth while Sogard recovers, but hasn't exactly been tearing it up at the Triple-A level with Colorado Springs this season, batting just .238/.296/.337 in 71 games this year.
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.
Rivera is 9-for-33 (.273) with a home run, four RBI, and two stolen bases through 19 games this spring.
Rivera's at-bats this spring have been limited with the Brewers trying to get Orlando Arcia as many plate appearances as possible, but the team is not counting on Rivera's bat. He still has a shot to break camp with the big club for the second year in a row in a utility role.
Rivera was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.
Rivera appeared in 20 games earlier this year for the Brewers, but accumulated just a .485 OPS. He'll provide middle infield depth for Milwaukee down the stretch.
Rivera was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday, MLB.com reports.
The Brewers dropped Rivera from the 25-man roster to clear room for Sunday's starting pitcher, Zach Davies, who was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Rivera played in just two games with the Brewers following his July 8 promotion, logging no official at-bats.
Rivera was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs Friday.
With Aaron Hill being traded, the Brewers opted to recall Rivera to fill the vacant infield spot. Rivera spent some time with the Brewers earlier in the season, but struggled to produce at the plate, going 10-for-49 with 19 strikeouts and just one walk. His batting was better at Colorado Springs, although not by much, as he posted a .232/.282/.305 line.
