Mike Rivera Signed

According to Jon Paul Morosi’s Twitter account, the Yankees signed C Mike Rivera to a minor league deal (h/t MLBTradeRumors.com).

Rivera, 33, has spent seven seasons in the Major Leagues.  He was with the Tigers (2001-02), Padres (2003), and the Brewers (2006-09).  Rivera spent last season as the back-up catcher to Jason Kendall, and hit .228/.326/.342 with 2 homeruns in 114 at-bats.

He may have a chance to make the team as the third catcher; otherwise, he will be helping out Jesus Montero down in Triple-A.
