News: Rivera went 1-for-4 with two runs scored and one RBI against the Diamondbacks on Friday. Impact: The Padres' catcher has done a decent job this season since he started getting full-time at-bats when Yasmani Grandal moved to first base to fill in for the injured Yonder Alonso. Rivera provides good pop from behind the plate with nine home runs in just over 250 at-bats this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Rivera will be behind the plate for the fifth straight game Sunday against the Dodgers, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Impact: With Yasmani Grandal moving over to first base more frequently in the wake of Yonder Alonso's season-ending forearm surgery, Rivera has earned more consistent playing time, a trend that could continue in September. Though the 31-year-old journeyman doesn't look like a foundational piece for the rebuilding Padres, he hasn't justified his removal from the lineup since picking up more plate appearances. He's produced two-hit games in each of his last three starts, improving his average to .252 over 218 at-bats on the season.(RotoWire, )
