Rivera Hopes To Return To Dodgers

The Dodgers took Juan Rivera off of the Blue Jays' hands in mid-July and the outfielder has been solid in 40 games for Los Angeles.  Rivera is obviously comfortable with his new club and told Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times that he would like to stay put.

"I would like to be back with this team," Rivera said. "I hope after the season, or even before, that we can agree on an extension or something."

The 33-year-old was lackluster at the plate for the Blue Jays this year but is hitting .292/.346/.438 for the Dodgers.  Rivera is in the final season of a three-year, $12.75MM deal which he originally inked with the Angels.
