Rivera would be a great backup outfielder on a pennant contender. He can do it all defensively, plus he has enough speed to be utilized as a pinch-runner. (A great fit for the Yankees, given the continuing problems that Shane Spencer is having with his surgically repaired knee and the lack of a bonafide backup to Williams in center field) Just don't let him get more than 150 at-bats or so.

As a follow-up, the NY Post reports that the Yankees are very interested in signing Rivera. They are hoping that he clears waivers, which will allow the Yankees to sign him for the major league minimum.
