Righthander Raul Rivera is the younger brother of Saul, a righthander with the Nationals. Raul spent the winter working with his brother to add a sinker to his repertoire. His fastball sits between 88-91 mph, and the new sinker is 83-84. His command and slow curveball are both inconsistent. Rivera, a Bethune-Cookman recruit, is more physical than his brother, coming in at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds. He's aggressive on the mound, never hesitating to pitch inside.
