Angels' Rene Rivera: Resumes light throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (knee) has progressed to light throwing drills, but has yet to resume running or catching, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Despite his limited activity to date, Rivera remains on track to return from the 10-day disabled list in late June or early July, just as the Angels initially expected when he required surgery May 25 to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee. Jose Briceno is expected to serve as the main backup to primary catcher Martin Maldonado until Rivera is deemed ready to come off the DL.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Undergoes surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee Friday morning, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Rivera will require between four to six weeks to recover after undergoing surgery. Initial reports stated Rivera was dealing with right knee inflammation, but it was later determined that he had suffered a meniscus tear. The 34-year-old was batting .259 with three home runs and 10 RBI over 22 games as the Angels' backup catcher.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Placed on DL with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday with right knee inflammation.

The move is retroactive to May 17, so Rivera will be eligible to return on May 27 at the earliest. Jose Briceno, who had his contract selected Sunday, will act as the Angels' reserve catcher in Rivera's absence.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Pops second homer despite sore hand
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Wednesday's 8-0 win over the Rockies.

The seventh-inning shot was Rivera's second of the season, but it was made more impressive by the fact that he took two foul tips off his right hand in the fourth inning before going yard. Despite the catcher's gutsy effort, expect him to get at least a day or two off to heal up while Martin Maldonado tends to matters behind the plate.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Earns third straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera will start at catcher and bat ninth Sunday against the Mariners, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

With Martin Maldonado on the bereavement list, Rivera has settled in as the Angels' primary catcher for the time being, as Sunday marks his third consecutive start. MLB rules dictate that Maldonado can spend no more than a week on the bereavement list, so expect him to be activated by Friday. Once Maldonado is back in the fold, Rivera will likely be limited to only a couple starts per week.
