Michael Rivera is a 2015 RHP with a 6-3 225 lb. frame from Trujillo Alto, PR who attends International Baseball Academy. Big strong power pitcher's build, has firmed up and matured physically in the past six months. Well balanced delivery, stays over the rubber well and drives to the plate, full quick arm action, high 3/4's arm slot. Steady upper 80's fastball, topped out at 90 mph frequently. Fastball had outstanding running live at times, worked fastball low to both corners consistently. Curveball showed tight spin and good bite, will flatten out at times but a solid second pitch with command and power. Was very aggressive and in command for four innings, dominant performance. Good student, verbal commitment to Alabama State.
