March 1st, 2018
Rivera has a broad shouldered, lean, and athletic frame at 6-foot-1 188-pounds. Fastball topped at 84 MPH and sat mostly 82-84 from a high-3/4 slot. Fastball creates late life and armside run. Showcases a changeup with heavy sinking action at 73-75 and curveball has 11/5 shape at 67-71. Slow, methodical start to delivery into a firm balance point. Stays over his backside has he descends down the mound – which creates the "whipping" motion in arm and body. Strong lower half, able to extend over front side with some deception. High follow prospect with a lot to like. One of the top 2020 prospects in NJ.
