RENE RIVERA RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rafael Montero, Fernando Salas, Addison Reed, and Josh Smoker all...

Rene Rivera slides well shot of second base

Tampa Bay Rays catcher Rene Rivera isn’t the most fleet of foot player in the game today. On Monday night, Rivera did a perfect Willie Mays Hayes impression after Brandon Guyer hit a grounder to Albert Pujols at first base with no outs in the seventh inning. Oh Rene…that’s not good. There’s Erick Aybar, just chilling…waiting for Rivera…and there’s Rivera, a good...

Catcher Rene Rivera offers Rays hope at position of need

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. -- Hope for a position that has flummoxed the Tampa Bay Rays in recent years comes in the form of a mild-mannered 31-year-old Puerto Rican, his back straight and chest out while standing near his stall at Charlotte Sports Park, this man a presence who doesn't promise the world but guarantees full effort.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Rene Rivera remembers his last home run, three years ago next month at Oakland for the Minnesota Twins. His latest will certainly be memorable, too, and did plenty to give San Diego's inconsistent offense a boost.
