Armando Rivero: Released by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was released by Atlanta on Wednesday, David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Rivero didn't spend any time on the mound this season due to a shoulder injury, and was released by the Braves after being selected in the Rule 5 draft last December. Looking forward, the 29-year-old strikeout machine will look to latch on with another organization. During his time with Triple-A Iowa in 2016 while in the Cubs' system, he posted a 2.13 ERA with 105 strikeouts in 67.2 relief innings.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Moves to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Monday, David O'Brien of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Rivero originally experienced soreness while throwing in Venezuelan winter ball, and although no updates on his condition have come forth, it doesn't seem like he's close to returning. The Rule 5 pick will be booted from the 40-man roster in order for the team to add Sean Rodriguez to the active roster. This designation doesn't change Rivero's return date at all, but it doesn't seem like he'll be seeing game action anytime soon.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Placed on 10-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) has been placed on the 10-day DL retroactive to March 30, MLB.com reports.

Rivero has yet to show off his skills for the Braves since being acquired via the Rule 5 draft, as the reliever hasn't made an appearance all spring. Due to the date of the transaction, Rivero would be eligible to return in just over a week, though it's unlikely the right-hander is ready at that time.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Likely to begin season on DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) is likely to begin the season on the DL, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The Rule 5 pick hasn't appeared in a single spring training game for Atlanta, and his shoulder issues also caused him to cut short his winter league stint, so this doesn't appear to be something that will resolve itself any time soon. Rivero will need to spend at least 90 days on the active roster to lose his Rule 5 status this season and remain in the Braves' organization, but that still gives the club plenty of time to let him rehab and strengthen his shoulder on the DL before being activated.

Braves' Armando Rivero: Not yet cleared to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero (shoulder) hasn't been cleared to throw yet, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

The report runs contrary to a statement given by manager Brian Snitker a few weeks ago, but it appears Rivero is still dealing with soreness suffered in the Venezuelan Winter League. The Rule 5 draft pick has posted intriguing numbers in the minors over the past few seasons, including a 2.13 ERA and a 105:35 K:BB ratio with Triple-A Iowa last year, though it seems he will begin 2017 recovering from the nagging ailment.
