Rene Rivera provides all the offense Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Padres catcher Rene Rivera once again provided all the offense for his team in a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Wednesday.

Rivera slapped a bases-clearing single in the opening frame and his team never looked back. He finished 1 for 4 with three RBI and two strikeouts. He owns a .221/.275/.418 slash line with five homers and 20 RBI in 122 at-bats.

Rene Rivera slugs fifth home run Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/17/2014) Padres catcher Rene Rivera delivered the only offense for the losing team Tuesday, going 1 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 6-1 loss to the Mariners.

Rivera has knocked home runs in two of his last three games, but he was just 3 for 22 in the month of June before his recent three-game stretch. The catcher has hit .225/.288/.461 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 102 at-bats.


Rene Rivera earning added playing time


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2014) Padres catcher Rene Rivera has been the more productive half of the team's catching duo with the bat, but his glove is the reason he has started eight of the last nine games, reports MLB.com.

"He's playing well and I like the way he's catching," manager Bud Black said. "He's doing a good job with the pitching staff and our team ERA is really good when he's catching."

Rivera is hitting .235/.293/.447 on the season, but his work behind the plate might be the most impressive thing about his season. Padres' pitchers have a 2.72 ERA with Rivera over the last 28 games.

Helping Rivera's cause is the fact that Yasmani Grandal is hitting just .183/.267/.358 while appearing in 11 more games than Rivera entering Tuesday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2014) Padres catcher Rene Rivera came up big at the plate on Thursday, launching a two-run home run in Game 2 of a day-night doubleheader against Cincinnati.

He took starter Jeff Francis deep in the second inning, which proved to be the difference. He finished 1 for 3 with a walk, run scored and an RBI in a 6-1 victory. He is hitting .255 with two homers and nine RBI in 47 at-bats.

Rene Rivera drives in five in win vs. Giants


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Padres catcher Rene Rivera paced the offense Monday, going 2 for 5 with a double, a home run and five RBI in his team's 6-4 win over the Giants.

Rivera entered play Monday without an extra-base hit to his credit, and he has two after a couple key hits early in Monday's game. He knocked a two-run double in the fourth inning to put his team up 2-0, then smashed a three-run home run in the fifth inning to give his team a 5-3 lead. He has hit .233/.258/.367 in 30 at-bats.

He hit .343 with five home runs, 18 doubles and 38 RBI in 74 games for Tucson.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
