Well, it seems Eric Gagne finally did something positive for the Red Sox. He injured Mariano Rivera.

As Rivera was stretching in the bullpen in the eighth inning last night, he was struck by an errant toss from Gagne, who was warming up in the adjacent bullpen.

The ball struck his right pinky finger. The finger was bruised and numb as Rivera pitched, which explains his lack of control on the ninth inning.

Rivera said today that he is fine and available.
