Juan Rivera's New Deal Could Earn Him $9 Million Over Two Years

When the news originally broke that the Los Angeles Dodgers had re-signed outfielder Juan Rivera, his new two-year deal was reportedly worth somewhere in the range of $4.5 million for one year. In actuality with team options and incentives the deal could be worth around $9 million, according to the L.A. Times' Dylan Hernandez. 

The Dodgers have a $4 million team option for 2013, which they could buyout for $500,000 if they don't feel like picking it up. Rivera could also earn himself an additional $500,000 in performance-based incentives over the couse of the next two seasons as well. 

Over the course of the next two seasons, Rivera's 400th, 425th, 450th, 475th, 500th, 525th and 550th plate appearances would garner him $50,000 each time, while his 575th and 600th plate appearances would each be worth $75,000 apiece.
