The Yankees also announced Thursday they have invited 44 players to camp. Among the group were first-round picks Slade Heathcott, an outfielder from the 2009 draft, and Cito Culver, a shortstop selected in 2010. Top catching prospect Gary Sanchez also is on the list.
Agreements with Rivera, who played for the Yankees from 2001-03, and Diaz were previously reported.
The Yankees will be Bobby Wilson's third team this offseason. He was released in October by the Angels, and he was not offered a contract by Toronto in December. In 389 career at-bats, he's batting .208 with eight homers and 37 RBIs.
