Nationals reliever Felipe Rivero's blood levels back to normal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Nationals reliever Felipe Rivero, who underwent a small procedure to patch up a burst ulcer almost three weeks ago, has his blood levels back to normal, manager Matt Williams told reporters on Thursday, per the Washington Post.

Rivero is in the midst of a throwing program, and once he's complete, he'll start a minor-league rehab assignment.

"Good thing is that he's healthy and feels good," Williams said.


Nationals' Felipe Rivero had ulcer that burst, underwent procedure


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) Nationals reliever Felipe Rivero endured a miserable past couple of weeks. 

According to The Washington Post's James Wagner, Rivero's gastrointestinal bleed was much worse than what was announced. Rivero said he threw up blood on April 21 after throwing just two pitches during a team event. 

After alerting the team, it was discovered that Rivero had an ulcer that burst. He went to the hospital and had a procedure done to patch up his stomach lining. Rivero told The Post he's no longer feeling any pain. 

“Sometimes I don’t feel well but I’m getting there,” Rivero said. “Little by little. [Sunday,] when I did flat ground, I was too tired. I did flat ground [Monday] and it was a little bit better. I wasn’t as tired.”

Rivero has appeared in only one game this season for the Nationals. 


Nationals recall P Matt Grace; P Felipe Rivero sent to DL


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) The Nationals placed left-handed pitcher Felipe Rivero on the 15-day disabled list with a gastrointestinal bleed, the team announced. The move is retroactive to April 18.

With an extra spot on the 25-man roster, the Nationals recalled right-handed pitcher Matt Grace from Triple-A and he is available to pitch in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Grace, 23, failed to make the team out of spring training.

The Nationals are the favorites (-101) over the Cardinals on Wednesday.


Nationals P Felipe Rivero strikes out 2 in MLB debut


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) Making his major-league debut, Nationals reliever Felipe Rivero struck out two batters in the ninth inning of Friday night's 7-2 win over the Phillies. 

With the game in hand, Rivero entered the game in a no-pressure situation. He did allow three hits and an earned run, which was scored via a Ryan Howard RBI single. His fastball was clocking in the mid-90s, which helped him strike out Cody Asche and Darin Ruf. 


Nationals promote LHP Rivero, demote RHP Jordan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) The Nationals have promoted left-hander Felipe Rivero from Triple-A Syracuse and sent righty Taylor Jordan back to the same team.

Director of player development Mark Scialabba said they liked what they saw out of Rivero during spring training, masnsports.com reports.

"Obviously electric arm. The fastball comes out good," Scialabba said. "He jumps on hitters and its just matter of him harnessing his stuff and just getting repetition. He certainly opened some eyes in spring training and had a great camp. He showed the ability to throw strikes and utilize his fastball, slider combination and a changeup as well that can play up here."

The move gives Washington two southpaws for its weekend series against Philadelphia. Rivero was off to a slow start in the minors this season with a 10.12 ERA. He performed well, however, in his last two appearances.

"He's powerful. We put him in the relieving role over the last six or seven times on the mound," manager Matt Williams said. "Three (games) at the end of spring training, a couple more in the minor leagues. He's gone back-to-back down there, so we feel confident in that regard. What he's shown us is he's throwing the ball over the plate, it's mid-90s fastball with breaking ball and changeup. We need another lefty, so he's a logical option for us. Power lefty out of the pen."


Nationals send two players to minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Nationals announced Wednesday they optioned pitcher Felipe Rivero to Double-A Harrisburg and reassigned pitcher A.J. Cole to minor-league camp.

Report: Felipe Rivero heading to Washington


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2014) Rays pitcher Felipe Rivero is heading to the Nationals as part of the Jose Lobaton deal, according to SB Nation.

The 22-year-old spent last season in Class A ball. Over 127 innings, he posted a 3.40 ERA. Rivero will need more seasoning in the minors, and likely won't be up with the major-league club this season.

by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
