Mets' Rene Rivera: Goes yard twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera hit two home runs in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Giants.

The journeyman catcher led the charge in beating up on Giants starter Matt Moore, going yard in the second and fourth innings. Rivera continues to be a decent backup to Travis d'Arnaud behind the dish, but doesn't produce nearly enough from a fantasy standpoint to make up for his limited playing time.

Mets' Rene Rivera: Hits solo shot against Nats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Thursday's loss to Washington.

This was just the fourth start for Rivera since the calendar flipped to June, and the lack of playing time is a huge blow to his fantasy value. With Travis d'Arnaud healthy, Rivera projects to receive limited at-bats going forward, too. However, injuries have limited d'Arnaud to just 142 games over the previous two seasons, so Rivera might see another fleeting run of semi-regular starts before the season is over.

Mets' Rene Rivera: Gets rest day Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Rivera has assumed the bulk of the catching duties since Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) hit the disabled list, but he'll concede a start in the series finale to Kevin Plawecki, who will serve as the battery mate for Tommy Milone. D'arnaud recently kicked off a rehab assignment and could be ready to return from the DL later this week, at which point Rivera will see his at-bats tail off.

Mets' Rene Rivera: Two hits in Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

He now has a six-game hitting streak which includes five multi-hit performances, boosting Rivera's slash line on the season to .333/.339/.421. He did hit 11 homers with a .751 OPS in 2014 for the Padres, but his .419 BABIP this year indicates he won't be able to keep up this pace even if he retains a larger share of the workload behind the plate after Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) returns.

Mets' Rene Rivera: Making fifth start in six games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera will start at catcher and bat seventh in the order Monday against the Giants, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

Rivera will make his fifth start in six games, as he's clearly established himself as manager Terry Collins' preferred everyday option behind the plate while Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) remains on the disabled list. While Rivera is known mostly for his defensive prowess, he's been productive at the bottom of the lineup during his run of starts, going 8-for-17 with a homer, five RBI and four runs.
