Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Optioned to Omaha
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

He's no longer needed with fellow catcher Cam Gallagher back from his shoulder injury. Rivero played infrequently during his time with the team and hasn't left much of an impression in his first 22 big-league plate appearances, hitting .111/.273/.167.

Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was recalled from Triple-A Omaha on Sunday.

The 22-year-old spent 11 days with the Royals in May and will rejoin the team Sunday with Cam Gallagher (shoulder) landing on the injured list. Rivero went 0-for-6 with a run and three strikeouts in two appearances during his first taste of big-league action, and he should see occasional opportunities while serving as Salvador Perez's backup until Gallagher is healthy.

Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was optioned to Triple-A Omaha on Friday.

Rivero served as Salvador Perez's backup while Cam Gallagher was out with a concussion. He came to the plate just six times during his time with the team, going hitless with three strikeouts. He'll return to the minors now that Gallagher is healthy again.

Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Gets call to bigs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero was recalled from Kansas City's alternate training site Monday, Joel Goldberg of Bally Sports Kansas City reports.

Rivero will have a chance to make his big-league debut with Cam Gallagher (concussion) heading to the 7-day injured list. He hasn't played in an official minor-league contest since the 2019 season, spending the majority of his time at High-A where he hit .212 with one homer, 24 RBI and two stolen bags over 91 games.

Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Protected from Rule 5 draft
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero's contract was selected by the Royals on Friday.

The Royals obviously like Rivero's defense at catcher, but he isn't very appealing in dynasty leagues. He hit .212/.270/.278 in 91 games at High-A in 2019 and should open the year at Double-A.

Royals' Sebastian Rivero: Invited to summer camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivero will be a part of the Royals' 60-man player pool this season, Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes reports.

Rivero is one of six catchers who were invited to the Royals' summer camp, and he is the least prominent of the bunch. He has never been a league-average hitter above rookie ball and hit .212 in 91 games at High-A last year.
