Dodgers decline 2013 contract options for trio
LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers declined the 2013 contract options for pitcher Todd Coffey, outfielder Juan Rivera and catcher Matt Treanor on Monday.

Coffey, who missed the second half of the season after undergoing his second Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery, was bought out of a $2.5 million salary for $300,000.

Rivera, who shuttled between left field and first base until the trades for Shane Victorino and Adrian Gonzalez, was bought out of a $4 million salary for $500,000.

Treanor, who saw only sporadic action backing up A.J. Ellis, was bought out of a $950,000 salary for $150,000.

The Dodgers have seven players eligible for free agency -- Bobby Abreu, Joe Blanton, Randy Choate, Adam Kennedy, Brandon League, Victorino and Jamey Wright.

General manager Ned Colletti said he wants to re-sign the three relievers -- League, Choate and Wright. League is the highest priority and could be the first deal done.
