The Athletics have signed Jose Rivas, a Venezuelan catcher, for $220,000. Rivas turned 16 on Aug. 5, so he was one of the youngest players in the 2014-15 signing class. He’s 6 feet, 180 pounds with good strength and power potential from the right side for a catcher, with solid blocking and receiving skills behind the plate for his age. Rivas trained with Jose Montero.
