Hank Steinbrenner confirmed that the Yankees offered Mariano Rivera $45 million over three seasons.

“He’d be by $4 million a year the highest-paid relief pitcher,” Hammerin’ Hank said. “To say that’s a strong offer would be an understatement. … The ball’s in their court. If they still want to look for more somewhere else, that’s up to them.”

Agent Fernando Cuza did not return several calls seeking comment. Brian Cashman is so far staying quiet as well.

Jorge Posada will have his physical tomorrow.
