08/30/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Bradenton (Tampa), FL Michael is an athletic R/R SS who can pick it. Defensively, he shows active prep as he comes to get the GB. He presents his glove, makes the plays with soft hands and has a clean transfer to throw. At the plate, this righty displays a square setup with centered balance and smooth rhythm to load. Barrel delivery is quick through a short/direct path as he engages his lower 1/2 well and connects, spraying line-drives. Rivera has a solid skill-set and should find success in this his junior year.
