Cubs' Rene Rivera: Collects two hits, drives in run Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Brewers.

Rivera was one of the few Cubs to produce in this one, as the team mustered just the one run and left 13 men on base. The 34-year-old catcher isn't likely to get too many more chances moving forward, as Willson Contreras returned from the disabld list on Sunday and Alex Avila figures to serve as the primary backup.

Cubs' Rene Rivera: Day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera is not in the lineup against Pittsburgh on Wednesday.

Rivera will take a typical day off while Alex Avila draws a start behind the plate. Since joining the Cubs on Aug. 19, Rivera is hitting .269/.367/.423 with one home run and five RBI in nine appearances.

Cubs' Rene Rivera: Absent from Monday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera is ,a href="https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/904737352957997057">out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Rivera has been given the starting nod behind the plate in four of the last five games, but he'll give way to Alex Avila for the series opener in Pittsburgh. With Wilson Contreras (hamstring) making encouraging progress, Rivera and Avila are essentially competing for what will be a backup role in the final weeks of the season. Rivera helped his case with a grand slam Saturday, but followed that up with a 0-for-3, two-strikeout performance Sunday. He's recorded at least one strikeout in each of the last six games he's appeared in.

Cubs' Rene Rivera: Hits grand slam in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 2-for-5 with a grand slam and two runs scored during Saturday's win over Atlanta.

Rivera has started six of 12 games since joining the Cubs and gone 7-for-20 at the dish. However, with Willson Contreras (hamstring) inching closer to a return, Rivera's playing-time window is closing. Barring a Contreras setback, there aren't many settings where Rivera projects to remain on the fantasy radar.

Cubs' Rene Rivera: Tallies three hits to help rout Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 3-for-5 with a run in a 17-3 blowout of the Pirates on Wednesday.

His hits weren't exactly crucial to the team's success, but they're nice for Rivera, as he'd started off his Cubs career by going just 1-for-9 while playing sporadically. Don't expect this outing to win him any more extra time with Alex Avila hitting well as the interim No. 1 catcher while Willson Contreras (hamstring) remains sidelined.
