Nationals sent INF Carlos Rivero outright to Triple-A Syracuse.

Rivero didn't make the Nationals' Opening Day roster and had to clear waivers before being sent to the minors. He batted .303/.347/.435 with 10 home runs in 126 games at the Triple-A level in 2012.

Nationals optioned INF Carlos Rivero to Triple-A Syracuse.

Rivero was hitless over 10 at-bats during Grapefruit League play. The 23-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Phillies in December after batting .270/.326/.440 with 16 home runs, 71 RBI and a .766 OPS last season between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. His ceiling is likely that of a backup infielder.

Nationals claimed INF Carlos Rivero off waivers from Phillies.

Rivero, 23, batted .270/.326/.440 with 16 home runs, 71 RBI and a .766 OPS over 568 plate appearances this past season between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He has a strong arm defensively and nice power potential from the right side, but his plate discipline remains a work in progress.

Phillies claimed INF Carlos Rivero off waivers from the Indians.

Rivero, 22, batted .232/.278/.325 with six home runs and 43 RBI in 406 at-bats in his second year with Double-A Akron this season. The Indians protected Rivero from the Rule 5 Draft last December waiting for his breakout season on offense, but things just haven't come together for him yet.

Carlos Rivero had a grand slam and a two-run homer Tuesday for low Single-A Lake County.

Rivero, who turns 19 later this month, is batting .292/.327/.434 in 106 at-bats. The Indians really like his offensive potential as a right-handed hitter. He probably won't last as a shortstop, but he's already intriguing as a fantasy prospect.
