 Biographical Information
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.
