The future Hall of Hamer Mariano Rivera may or may not return next season after suffering a season-ending ACL injury in May.
“He said he doesn’t know what he is doing yet,’’ Yankees GM Brian Cashman said. “I asked him what his plans were and he said, ‘I haven’t decided yet.’ He said he was working his way through about 2013 and he would let me know soon.’’
Rivera will be 43 on November 29 and will be a free agent when the World Series ends.
Cashman said to reporters, “I told him when you know where you are at let us know.’’
Rivera made $15 million last season and the Yankees still have to consider what to do about Rafael Santana who converted 42-of-46 save chances and can opt out of the final season of his contract, a choice that Soriano’s agent, Scott Boras, has implied that Soriano would choose.
This one is worth watching.
So is this…
CC Sabathia had arthroscopic surgery performed by Dr. James Andrews to remove a bone spur in his left elbow on Thursday and is expected to be ready for spring training. The team said that no other problems were detected.
Cashman said. “It was a quick and minor cleanup. We’ll take him along slowly through spring training and he’ll be ready for Opening Day.”
