Player Outlook
Emmanuel Rivera's path to any fantasy viability took a hit when Arizona traded for Eugenio Suarez during the offseason. It was one thing for Rivera to serve as a backup to an aging Evan Longoria, but Suarez does not need much time off and Rivera could find his path to 300 plate appearances severely challenged as long as he remains with Arizona this season. He can handle both infield corner positions well and being out of options all but assures he remains with a club in that type of capacity for this season. He has never quite shown enough bat to profile as an everyday player and a career .247/.304/.380 line in 740 major league plate appearances reinforces that line of thought. His in-season flexibility is a nice resource for mono leagues but mixed league fantasy managers can safely overlook him

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Back on bench against righty

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals. Rivera will hit the bench after starting in all three games of the Marlins' weekend series in Washington, going 1-for-9 with a double and run scored across those contests. The Nationals brought left-handed starters to the hill for each of those games, so Rivera still looks to be a short-side platoon player for Marlins rather than someone who's pushing for an everyday role.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Crosses plate twice in loss

    Rivera went 2-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 7-5 loss to the Brewers. Getting the start at third base and batting seventh against lefty Robert Gasser, Rivera had his first multi-hit performance since May 1 and his first extra-base hit since April 28. The 27-year-old has been back in a short-side platoon role for most of May with Jake Burger healthy, and Rivera's hitting just .240 (6-for-25) on the month with two RBI and five runs.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Loses out on regular role

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Rivera started in eight consecutive games from April 27 through this past Saturday, but he appears to have lost hold of a regular role in the wake of Jake Burger's recent return from the injured list. He'll be on the bench Wednesday for the fourth consecutive contest.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Gets sixth straight start

    Rivera will start at third base and bat eighth in Thursday's game against the Rockies, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Rivera will be awarded a sixth consecutive start after he went 2-for-2 with a walk and two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-1 win. Each of his past four starts have come at third base, and he'll continue to vie with Vidal Brujan for playing time at the position until Jake Burger (oblique) is cleared to return from the 10-day injured list. Burger began a rehab assignment Wednesday, and it's possible that he'll be ready to join the Marlins at some point during their six-game West Coast road trip that begins Friday in Oakland.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Hits bench Wednesday

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta. Rivera will head to the bench after he started in each of the past six games at either corner-infield spot while going 5-for-19 with an RBI and a run. Josh Bell will draw the start at first base, while Vidal Brujan covers third base in the series finale.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Rivera is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports. Rivera has been getting regular reps at third base since Jake Burger (intercostal) landed on the injured list, but he'll begin the series finale on the bench. Otto Lopez will occupy the hot corner for Miami.

  • Marlins' Emmanuel Rivera: Scooped up by Miami

    The Marlins acquired Rivera from the Diamondbacks on Tuesday in exchange for cash considerations. Rivera will be a candidate for some playing time at designated hitter and at third base on days Jake Burger plays first or is the DH. The 27-year-old is a career .247/.304/.380 hitter over parts of three major-league seasons. Jacob Amaya was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Starts at shortstop

    Rivera started at shortstop and went 0-for-1 with two walks in Thursday's spring game against Kansas City. Rivera filled in for the injured Geraldo Perdomo (lower body), who missed the team's previous two Cactus League games. Jace Peterson started at shortstop Tuesday and Wednesday before Rivera. Perdomo's injury is not considered serious, and he's expected back in the lineup this weekend. There was a report early in camp that the Diamondbacks want Rivera to be the backup shortstop, but he's only played the position in winter ball and just a few innings this spring. That may partially be the reason why Arizona signed well-seasoned shortstop Elvis Andrus.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Positioned to back up at short

    Rivera played shortstop during the offseason in winter ball and is expected to be the backup there when the regular season opens, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports. Rivera has also played shortstop in previous winters, but the 27-year-old has not logged an inning there during his career in professional ball in the States. The organization clearly values Rivera, who is out of options, and it doesn't want to risk losing him. The right-handed batter can fill in against lefties, which starter Geraldo Perdomo had a .579 OPS against in 2023. A best-case scenario would have Rivera behind Perdomo at shortstop and backing up at third and first base.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Starting at third base in Game 4

    Rivera will start at third base and bat eighth Tuesday in Game 4 of the World Series against the Rangers. This marks the first start of the Fall Classic for Rivera, who's gone 2-for-2 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored off the bench. He's filling in for the struggling Evan Longoria on Tuesday as the Diamondbacks look to even up the series.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Getting start Tuesday

    Rivera is starting at third base and batting eighth Tuesday in Game 7 of the NLCS in Philadelphia. With left-hander Ranger Suarez taking the hill for the Phillies, Rivera enters the lineup at the hot corner while Evan Longoria slides into the designated hitter spot. Rivera is 1-for-8 with one RBI so far during the NLCS, although that one hit was a run-scoring single off a lefty in Cristopher Sanchez.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: In Game 3 lineup

    Rivera is starting at third base and batting eighth Thursday in Game 3 of the NLCS against the Phillies. Evan Longoria started each of the Diamondbacks' first seven games at third base this postseason, but it will be Rivera at the hot corner Thursday as Longoria slides into the designated hitter spot. Rivera did receive one plate appearance in Game 1 of the NLCS, grounding out as a pinch hitter.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Absent from lineup

    Rivera is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the White Sox. Rivera has been part of a rotation at third base for the Diamondbacks but will begin this one on the bench for the fourth time in five contests. Jace Peterson is handling the hot corner.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Recalled from Reno

    The Diamondbacks recalled Rivera from Triple-A Reno on Friday. Rivera was optioned to Reno on Aug. 12, and he has since slashed .304/.418/.609 with three homers and eight RBI across 55 plate appearances. He'll rejoin Arizona as rosters expand to 28 players and could split time at third base with Jace Peterson. Buddy Kennedy was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Rivera to Triple-A Reno on Saturday. Rivera hasn't recorded a hit since the end of July, so he'll head back to the minors in order to right the ship. Rivera has had better luck in Triple-A this season, slashing .348/.378/.591 in 74 plate appearances, so he could make a quick return to Arizona if he gets going at the plate again. Buddy Kennedy was selected from Reno to take Rivera's spot on the active roster.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Moves into short-side platoon role

    Rivera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers. After starting at third base against lefties Dallas Keuchel and Julio Urias in the Diamondbacks' last two games and going 0-for-7 with four strikeouts, Rivera will move to the bench Wednesday for the second straight game in which Arizona has opposed a right-hander. Trade-deadline pickup Jace Peterson will get the nod at the hot corner against Dodgers righty Bobby Miller and appears to have moved into the strong side of a platoon with Rivera at third base.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Sits amid slump

    Rivera is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers. Jace Peterson will start at third base and bat sixth versus the Dodgers and right-hander Bobby Miller. Rivera has gone 0-for-17 with no walks and six strikeouts since the calendar flipped to August.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Knocks in run

    Rivera started at third base and went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's 4-3 extra-innings win over San Francisco. Rivera's 10th-inning single gave the Diamondbacks a brief lead before the Giants scored in the bottom of the frame. It was his sixth straight game with hit; he's 8-for-20 during the streak. A series of moves over the last few days impacts third base going forward. After placing Evan Longoria (back) on the injured list Saturday, Arizona traded infielder Josh Rojas to Seattle then acquired infielder Jace Peterson from Athletics. Peterson is essentially a Rojas replacement -- a left-handed bat that plays second and third base -- and could emerge as a platoon mate of Rivera.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Not starting Saturday

    Rivera isn't in the Diamondbacks' lineup Saturday against Seattle. Rivera will get a breather Saturday after putting together a four-game hitting streak and going 6-for-17 with a homer and three runs scored in that span. Josh Rojas will start at the hot corner in Rivera's place and bat seventh.

  • Diamondbacks' Emmanuel Rivera: Gets on base four times

    Rivera went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored in Monday's 10-6 loss to the Cardinals. All three of Rivera's hits were singles in this contest. He's gone 10-for-42 (.238) over 12 contests in July while sharing third base with Evan Longoria. Rivera boasts a .290/.330/.398 slash line with three home runs, 22 RBI, 31 runs scored, one stolen base and 11 doubles through 200 plate appearances this season. He could continue to wrangle playing time away from Longoria, who has gone just 4-for-27 (.148) this month.
