Brian Cashman just made an appearance in the press box, essentially to talk about Mariano Rivera.

He said his preference was to wait until after the season to discuss a contract extension. He did not rule out the idea of a contract getting done before then but indicated that would not be the case.

Even for a player of Rivera’s stature, Cashman said, it’s not fair to extend him while other players are in the same situation. Cashman said he “doesn’t doubt” Rivera will remain with the Yankees.

“I don’t think this is as big an issue as it is being played out to be,” Cashman said.
