Outfielder Juan Rivera may not know who will be signing his checks next year, but he does know he'll be getting one -- as the 33-year-old has agreed to a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Dodgers. The team officially announced the move Thursday afternoon.
Rivera was acquired in a trade from Toronto for a player to be named and cash after disappointing in his his first 70 games with the Blue Jays, hitting .243/.305/.360. In Los Angeles, he played more to his career averages, hitting .274/.333/.406 in 62 games, playing mostly right field, as well as left and at first base.
Rivera spent six years in Anaheim before being part of the trade that sent Vernon Wells to Anaheim in January. He was in the final year of a three-year, $12.75 million deal.
