David Rivera is a 2009 3B/P with a 6'0'', 195 lb. frame from Upland, CA who attends Claremont HS. He has a strong build that is thick but he does have athleticism. Rivera is a really good all-around young player and was strongly considered for the top prospect list. He has a strong swing that starts with an aggressive set-up. His swing plane is good and he made solid opposite field contact. Rivera is pretty short to the ball and for the most part he has a contact approach, though he does possess power. It could be that he is a young hitter that is not yet in tune with his natural power and that is ok, it will come out in time. Rivera showed off a good arm across the diamond with throws that track well. His hands and feet work well at 3rd base, where he is and will continue to be a really solid defensive player. On the mound he has a short, infielder type arm action that works from a high 3/4 slot. His fastball was 83-85 mph and at times had late cut action. Rivera also showed some breaking ball feel and consistently threw strikes with all pitches. He would make a nice fill in reliever at the college level. The mid-80s should come to him soon. Rivera is a good D1 prospect with the physicality and ability to contribute sooner rather than later as a position player.

David Rivera is a 2009 3B/P/SS with a 6'0'', 188 lb. frame from Upland CA, who attends Claremont HS. David has a strong well-developed build. At the plate David has a solid swing with good bat speed. He makes consistent solid contact at the plate but needs to work on his balance some. He tends to dive in on the ball taking away from his power. In the field David best projects at third base where he has nice hands and an accurate arm, but lacks the footspeed for a middle infield position. On the mound David has smooth mechanics with a short arm action and good armside run. His fastball seems to get on hitters quick and he will also show an 11 to 5 slider. David is a solid student that should attract the attention of many mid-level college programs.
