NEW YORK (AP) - Juan Rivera has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Yankees.

The 34-year-old outfielder and first baseman, who played for the Yankees from 2001-03, hit .244 with nine homers and 47 RBIs last year for the Los Angeles Dodgers.

New York planned to announce the agreement later this week along with the deals for Matt Diaz and others who will go to spring training with minor league contracts.
