Braves' Rene Rivera: Acquired by Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera was acquired off waivers by the Braves on Wednesday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

It's unclear how Rivera fits into the picture in Atlanta, as the team already has two solid catchers in Kurt Suzuki and Tyler Flowers. He'll at least provide catching depth in the final month of the season for the Braves, but between his uncertain role and his weak bat (a career .221/.272/.354 slash line), it's hard to see him having much fantasy value. The move leaves Francisco Arcia as the primary catcher for the Angels.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Receives day off Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Astros, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Rivera will head to the bench for the third time since coming off the 60-day disabled list Aug. 15 and is 6-for-21 with a home run and seven strikeouts since his activation. Francisco Arcia will start behind the plate and bat seventh against Justin Verlander and the Astros.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Blasts game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 2-for-4 with a home run and a double in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Rivera was the hero in this one, launching a solo home run with one out in the ninth inning to break a 2-2 tie in the eventual 3-2 victory. It was the 35-year-old's first game since May after undergoing knee surgery, and he'll likely receive plenty of cautionary days off down the stretch as a result.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Activated; in Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (knee) was reinstated from the 60-day disabled list and will bat sixth and catch against San Diego on Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Rivera will return to action at the big-league level after undergoing knee surgery to repair a meniscus tear in May. He will likely settle into a reserve role behind Francisco Arcia while Jose Briceno also remains a member of the 25-man roster for the time being. Across 22 games prior to his injury, Rivera hit .259/.322/.481 with three home runs and 10 RBI.

Angels' Rene Rivera: Set to start rehab stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera (knee) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with High-A Inland Empire on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

Rivera is set to return to live action for the first time since landing on the disabled list in mid-May with a knee injury that ultimately required surgery. Given the length of his absence, the veteran backstop will likely need to make a handful of rehab appearances before the Angels consider bringing him off the 60-day disabled list. Barring any setbacks, Rivera could be back with the big club sometime during the second half of August.
