JUAN RIVERA, 34, outfielder/first baseman
Final 2012 stats: .244 batting average, nine home runs, 47 runs batted in, 30 runs, .286 on-base and .375 slugging percentages in 310 at-bats.
Contract status: Free agent.
The good: His nine homers were actually the fifth-highest total by a Dodger. Played both left field and first base, and though he hardly excelled at either, he approached adequate and gave the Dodgers needed flexibility. Basically quiet, as never a problem in the clubhouse.
The bad: All his numbers were down from last season, and well off his career averages. Somewhat inexplicably, like a lot of Dodgers, he struggled against finesse pitchers (.198). Hit .215 at Dodger Stadium. Tore a hamstring in early May, and never seemed a factor again.
