Yankees Sign Juan Rivera

According to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, the Yankees have signed right-handed outfielder Juan Rivera to a minor league contract. The former Yankee will compete with Russ Canzler, Matt Diaz, and Thomas Neal for the current major league right-handed outfield spot this Spring Training.

His 106 wRC+ in 2012 against left-handed pitchers is his one positive factor for the team, but on a minor league deal, this signing can't hurt.
