Juan Rivera could earn $9 million in two years with Dodgers
The deal includes a $4-million salary for next season and a $4-million option for 2013 that the Dodgers can buy out for $500,000. Rivera can earn an additional $500,000 in performance-based incentives in each of the next two seasons.
In both years, his 400th, 425th, 450th, 475th, 500th, 525th and 550th plate appearances would each earn him $50,000. His 575th and 600th plate appearances would each earn him $75,000.
