UPDATE: Rivera has signed with the Cubs under slot for his draft position.
Rivera was a key contributor in Florida's College World Series run in 2023, with solid tools across the board helping him move steadily up Draft boards this spring. Rivera's college production in his first two seasons was impacted by the pandemic and injury. In 2023 he's been a able to show what he can do. Rivera has a strong, selective approach at the plate that has led to a higher walk rate 18 BB%, than strikeout rate 14 K%. He hit .348/.447/.617 in 2023 with 19 home runs. Defensively, while not the quickest, Rivera has good defensive actions that give him a good chance to stick at shortstop. Rivera does everything pretty well and should be a top 100 pick in July.
A senior - so you can expect some savings - with a high floor. You're probably not banking on a first-division regular, but if you can get a utility player with a little bit of pop while stretching the bonus pool a little bit, that's a win.
