5 feet 9, 165-pound build. Strength is present in the frame.  Some quickness with a good burst off the line running a 7.14 sixty.  Offensively, hits from the right side using a slightly open, balanced setup. Uses a short stride, sitting his foot down early in his load.  Gets his lower half through the ball at times. Quick hands, getting extension out front. Barrel works long and around the ball at times. Line drive approach working mostly middle to pull side with ball off his bat peaking at 83 mph. Plays through balls in the outfield with average hands and long arm action throwing from a high ¾ slot. Some accuracy to his throws topping 84 mph. On the infield he shows average hands, playing through balls and funneling to the center of his body after catch. Accurate arm that can throw from different slots peaking at 83 mph across the diamond. Also a pitcher, Rivera uses a simple delivery with a slow tempo, staying in line to the plate. Strong through balance.  Long arm action throwing from a high ¾ slot. Fastball works in the zone at 79-82 mph and topping at 83 mph. Falls off to the first base side at times causing him to miss up and to his arm side. Slows arm on CH working at 62-65 mph with fade. Stays around the zone with both his fastball and change.

Fundamental setup to continue to grow as the body matures.  Listed at 5-foot-7, 155 with an average build.  Right handed hitter begins in an athletic stance, rolling to his lead toe as a trigger.  Bat path stays flat through impact producing an exit velocity of 81mph.  Some head discipline issues leads to barrel awareness that can improve.  On the infield, takes very direct routes to the ball and tends to front every ball, chopping his feet late as the ball gets on him.  Hands work to stab through the ball, then creating a clean exchange to a long arm action and high-3/4 slot.  Good accuracy on the throws.  Registered arm strength of 73mph across the infield.  Sixty timed at 7.97.
