 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Juan Rivera avoided arbitration with the Los Angeles Angels on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal for $2,025,000.
The right fielder will make the same base salary as last season. His new deal calls for $150,000 in bonuses based on plate appearances.
Rivera broke his left leg playing winter ball in December 2007 after having a career season with the Angels in 2006. He was limited to 43 at-bats last season, hitting .279 with eight RBIs.
Rivera would earn $25,000 for making 375 plate appearances and $25,000 for each additional 25 plate appearances through 500.
