Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs transferred Rivas (finger) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rivas had already been ruled out for the season after landing on the 10-day IL on Sept. 21 with an injury to his right middle finger. His move to the 60-day IL frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for minor-league catcher Tyler Payne, who will serve as the backup to starter Erick Castillo in Sunday's season finale in St. Louis. The transaction won't affect Rivas' recovery timeline, as the 25-year-old rookie is expected to be in line for a relatively normal offseason.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Won't return this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas (finger) will miss the rest of the season after being placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Rivas is eligible to return for the final few games of the season, but the tendon injury in his right middle finger will instead end his campaign. The 25-year-old appeared in 18 games during his first taste of big-league action and hit .318/.388/.409 with one homer, three RBI and seven runs. Assuming he's healthy in time for spring training, Rivas should have a chance to earn a spot on Chicago's Opening Day roster in 2022.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with an injury to a tendon in his right middle finger, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Rivas was penciled in to start in the outfield Tuesday versus the Twins, but he'll instead move to the injured list. The 25-year-old will be eligible to return before the end of the season, but it would only be for the last few games of the campaign.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Hits first MLB home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

Rivas took Philadelphia starter Kyle Gibson deep in the fifth inning for his first MLB home run in his 13th career game. The 25-year-old made his second straight start Tuesday and should see increased playing time in the outfield moving forward with Jason Heyward (concussion) landing on the 7-day injured list. Rivas posted an .816 OPS at Triple-A this year across 58 games and is worth a look if he's able to carry over some success in the majors.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Starting in right field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas is starting in right field Tuesday against the Phillies.

Rivas will draw his second consecutive start and should be in line for increased playing time in the outfield after Jason Heyward (concussion) was placed on the 7-day injured list Tuesday. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut Aug. 29 and has hit .280 with a double, five runs and an RBI in 12 appearances since then.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Set for MLB debut Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas will start at first base and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.

The 24-year-old Rivas was recalled from Triple-A Iowa before Saturday's game but did not appear in the contest. He'll now make his MLB debut Sunday after slashing .284/.405/.411 with four home runs, 32 RBI and 35 walks in 237 plate appearances for Iowa. Rivas will give the Cubs some depth at first base, though Frank Schwindel has emerged as the starter there in the wake of the Anthony Rizzo trade.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Joins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs selected Rivas' contract from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed a strong offensive season in Iowa, hitting .284/.405/.411 with four home runs, 32 RBI and 35 walks in 237 plate appearances. With the Cubs, Rivas will be primed to make his major-league debut. He'll provide depth at first base and in the corner outfield for however long he remains on the major-league roster.

Cubs' Alfonso Rivas: Traded to Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivas was traded from the Athletics to the Cubs on Monday in exchange for Tony Kemp.

Rivas is primarily a first baseman but has also spent time in the outfield corners. In two professional seasons, which includes eight games at the Triple-A level but none at Double-A, he's hit .290/.390/.411. He's shown strong contact skills and the ability to take a walk, but he may not have enough power to be a significant big-league contributor.
