[edit] Biographical Information

Rene Rivera was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 2nd round of the 2001 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Pedro Grifol and made his pro debut that summer.

On May 7, 2011, with the Minnesota Twins, Rivera appeared in a major league game for the first time since September 26, 2006. In 2014, he was the opening day catcher for the San Diego Padres, the first time he had received the honor during his career. On April 28th that year, he had the best game of his career, driving in 5 runs thanks to a three-run homer - his first since 2011 - and a two-run double to lead the Padres to a 6-4 win over the San Francisco Giants.
