Nats add another minor leaguer

Per the Baseball America prospects blog, the Nats signed RHP Chris Rivera. Rivera spent 2007 with the Cubs organization, pitching in 22 games with a 3.57 ERA in rookie-ball.

Rivera's interesting to me because he's a semi-local guy. He's from Meadowbrook, VA (which is in the Tidewater area-click here for the map) and attended Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk. He played independent ball for the Washington Wild Things (Washington, PA that is) before signing wtih the Cubs.

Here are some links/articles if you want to get to know him:
