Dodgers Sign Juan Rivera To 1-Year Deal

Friday November 4th, 2011

The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed outfielder Juan Rivera to a 1-year deal, according to the team's official Twitter feed.  "It's official, the #Dodgers have signed Juan Rivera to a 1-year contract after he helped the club go 41-28 in the 2nd half last season," the team tweeted.

An earlier report indicated that the terms of the deal would earn Rivera $4 million in 2012, with a team option for $4 million in 2013.  The team did not reveal terms of the contract. In 2011, Rivera hit .258 with 11 home runs; five of those homers came after he was traded to the Dodgers from the Toronto Blue Jays.
