Los Angeles, CA – The Los Angeles Dodgers declined the 2013 contract options on outfielder/first baseman Juan Rivera, relief pitcher Todd Coffey and catcher Matt Treanor on Monday.
Rivera appeared in 109 games with the Dodgers last year and hit .244 with nine homers and 47 RBI. A career .274 hitter with 132 homers over 12 major league seasons with the New York Yankees, Montreal, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Toronto and the Dodgers, the 34-year-old was set to make $4 million in 2013. He instead received a $500,000 buyout.
Coffey had a $2.5 million option with a $300,000 buyout and pitched in 23 games before undergoing Tommy John surgery in July. He compiled a 1-0 record with a 4.66 earned run average prior to being shelved.
The right-hander owns 461 career appearances over eight seasons with Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Washington and the Dodgers.
Treanor batted just .175 with two homers and 10 RBI in his one season with Los Angeles and was bought out for $150,000 instead of receiving a $950,000 salary. The 36-year-old is a .221 lifetime hitter and has previously played with Florida, Detroit, Texas and Kansas City since entering the majors in 2004.
