11/17/2013 - College PREP - Middletown (Hartford), CT Ivan is a talented smooth fielding prospect at SS. Defensively, he shows good prep and moves quickly and fluidly around the baseball playing from right to left. He is sure handed and can make the tough plays the average INF can't. A clean exchange leads to a strong throw across the diamond with carry on the ball. Offensively, Rivera shows an athletic approach and good rhythm, getting back into a strong loaded position. He remains compact and delivers the barrel to and through to zone quickly. More backside lower 1/2 drive will help to increase pop and help him reach his power potential. Ivan has skills and a bright future in the game.
