Mariners claimed 3B Carlos Rivero off waivers from the Red Sox.

Rivero made it up for a brief cup of coffee with the Red Sox this season but spent most of the year between Double- and Triple-A, hitting .264/.324/.379 with seven homers and 53 RBI. The 26-year-old is probably a long shot to win an Opening Day roster spot.

Red Sox purchased the contract of INF Carlos Rivero from Triple-A Pawtucket.

He'll function as additional depth in the infield while Xander Bogaerts is sidelined with concussion symptoms. Rivero was hitting .264/.324/.379 with seven homers and 53 RBI between Pawtucket and Double-A Portland.

Red Sox signed INF Carlos Rivero to a minor league contract.

Rivero batted just .242/.298/.328 with five home runs in 114 games this summer between Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse -- affiliates of the Nationals. The 25-year-old will act as organizational depth for Boston.

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.
