Drafted in the 9th round (279th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2010 (signed for $85,000)
Rivera has a lean, athletic 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame. He's a legitimate shortstop with great range and smooth actions. He's an average runner and his arm is a little light for the left side of the infield, but he shows slick glovework. His swing is inconsistent and he doesn't have much strength yet, but his bat could come around when he adds muscle to his projectable frame. His offensive growth will determine whether he can start up the middle or serve as a reserve or utilityman.
