Report: Yankees release OF/1B Juan Rivera

Juan Rivera's return to the Yankees didn't last long. New York released the outfielder/first baseman Thursday according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.

Rivera was reunited with the Yankees in a minor league deal in January designed to increase the team's depth in right-handed-hitting outfielders. The addition of Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay likely made Rivera the odd man out as the Yankees break spring training.

Rivera hit .244 with nine home runs and 47 RBIs in 109 games with the Dodgers in 2012.

Rivera, 34, began his career as a Yankee in 2000, playing three seasons before being traded along with Randy Choate and Nick Johnson to the Montreal Expos for pitcher Javier Vasquez.
