Alfonso Rivas signs minor-league deal with Padres

Alfonso Rivas has signed a minor-league deal with the San Diego Padres. He has also received a non-roster invite to spring training.

Fantasy Impact

Rivas hit .235/.322/.307 with an 83 wRC+ in 101 games with the Cubs last season. He likely won't crack the Major League roster to start the season but could see an opportunity as a backup first baseman at some point.

Alfonso Rivas homers in Cubs loss Tuesday night

Cubs 1B Alfonso Rivas hit a two-run home run off Mike Clevinger in the second inning during Chicago's 5-4 loss to San Diego.

Fantasy Impact

The left-hander is slashing .286/.405/.891 with two homers and eight RBIs in only 35 at-bats. Given Frank Schwindel's struggles, the Cubs may try a platoon at first base for a bit. Rivas could be a sneaky grab in fantasy leagues - especially OBP ones - but be careful of his small career sample size.

Alfonso Rivas collects two hits Friday

Alfonso Rivas went 2-for-4 with two singles in Friday's 11-1 loss to the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Rivas accounted for two of Chicago's three hits on Friday, as the team was shut down by Adrian Houser. The 25-year-old is off to a very hot start in 2022, hitting .471 with an OPS of 1.256 in 17 at-bats. Despite those numbers, it's probably too early to pick him up in fantasy just yet.

Alfonso Rivas homers and drives in five runs in win

Alfonso Rivas went 3-for-6 including a home run and five RBIs in the dominant win over Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact

Rivas exploded in this game and helped lead the charge in the blowout victory. He has appeared in just four games this season, but he certainly put himself on the map with this performance.

Alfonso Rivas drives in a run Friday versus Milwaukee

Alfonso Rivas went 2-for-3 versus the Brewers Friday. He would drive in the first Cubs' run and then came around to score later in the inning.

Fantasy Impact

Rivas is a 24-year old first baseman in Triple-A where he had a .284 batting average while having the patience to bring his OBP to .405 despite little power. He is unlikely to be a factor in most leagues but he does seem to be doing well off the bench lately.
