Angels sign Juan Rivera for 3 years

According to the Angels have signed outfielder Juan Rivera to a 3 year deal worth $12.75 million. Rivera is a former Yankee and is a potential .280 hitter with 20 homers a year if given a full season of at-bats.

This comes as a surprise to me, but he'll likely be the starter in left for the Angels. I doubt he would have came back if he wouldn't be a starter, as he could have earned a full seasons worth of at-bats elsewhere.

Does this mean that if they can't get Teixeira, the Angels won't chase Manny?
