What are your thoughts on him?

with the way Willitz is playing, and the other two spots locked along with Garrett anderson is Juan Rivera even a everyday player this year?

When he comes back he should probably get the job again. Although I think last year was a career year.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

He wasn't even an everyday player last year, strictly speaking. He earned an everyday spot by about mid July, but that seems to be the way the Angels go, shuffling the lineup constantly. This year it's- one person comes back, another goes on the DL. The other day when they recalled Kendrick, they put Maicer Izturis on the DL. I think they did the same when they brought Figgins back earlier this year.

If Rivera can get healthy, they'll get him some at bats. If they can find an excuse to give another player with a minor injury a two to three week breather that they may not have needed, he stands a better chance for consistent playing time. It's a crowded outfield in LA though, so if your question is:

Now I have another player I can DL if I just drop Rivera outright. Do you think I might as well do it to clear the roster space?

then my answer is yes.

But if you have a free DL spot, go ahead and hang onto him.

The catch is that it now looks doubtful that he will be back by the break, possible not until late July. I am continuing to hold him because I have him for $1 in a keeper auction format, but I would not waste a slot on him in a redraft league if their are other appealing options.
