2018

2017

Even though he had put up strong offensive numbers at every stop along the way, the 28-year-old didn't get his first look at even Triple-A until 2015, and he finally worked his way up to the majors in 2016. The utility infielder earned his promotion after tearing the cover off the ball at Las Vegas, slashing .353/.393/.516 in 105 games before joining the parent club. Buoyed in part by an unsustainable .376 BABIP, Rivera hit .333 but also continued a trend from his minor league days of not drawing many walks. One of the reasons he didn't move through the ranks quicker is that -- aside from a slight power uptick in the minors last year -- he's been a pure contact hitter with only pedestrian speed on the bases. Still, he's proven himself capable of hitting for average and can play virtually anywhere in the field, so Rivera may get another look in a utility role in the majors this season.
