Rivera contract with #Yankees: One year: $10M plus following incentives. $500K for LCS/MVP, $1M for WS/MVP, $1M for winning Rolaids award.
Rivera said in his statement: “I feel like we have…a team that can compete for a championship. I’m not just coming back to play. I’m coming back to win.”
Also coming across the wires otherwise known as Twitter as I was writing this post, the Yankees designated both Mickey Storey and Jayson Nix for assignment to make room for Rivera and righthander Jim Miller on the 40-man roster. Miller was picked up a short time ago from Oakland.
Nix was signed to a $900,000 major league contract and immediately designated for assignment. He agreed to accept the assignment in Triple A and if he clears waivers, he will report to camp in the Spring.
