FEBRUARY 5th: Rivera's deal includes a base salary of $1.2MM, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports (on Twitter). The deal includes $800K in incentives, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter).
Rivera played for the Dodgers in 2012, posting a .244/.286/.375 batting line with nine home runs in 339 plate appearances. The 12-year MLB veteran bats from the right side, meaning he’ll likely compete with Matt Diaz and Russ Canzler for playing time against left-handed pitching. The Dodgers declined Rivera's 2013 option earlier in the offseason, after using him at first base and in both corner outfield positions this past season.
