By AP FeedFoxSports
The Dodgers have declined to exercise their 2013 options on outfielder Juan Rivera, reliever Todd Coffey and backup catcher Matt Treanor.
Rivera is due a $500,000 buyout since the club turned down his $4 million option. He batted .244 with 47 RBI while switching between left field and first base in his first season with Los Angeles.
Coffey was 1-0 with a 4.66 ERA. The right-hander missed the second half of the season after undergoing his second elbow ligament-replacement surgery. He is due a $300,000 buyout after the Dodgers declined his $2.5 million option.
Treanor batted .175 while appearing in 36 games as the backup to A.J. Ellis. He was bought out of his $950,000 salary for $150,000.
