Surgery likely for Rivera

I’m hoping to get more information on this later from Brian Cashman, who is supposed to be here today.

But Mariano Rivera is getting a second opinion on his shoulder today and every indication is that he will need surgery to repair bone spurs. It’s minor surgery, a scope. But no surgery is minor when you’re talking about a 38-year-old pitcher and shoulder issues are almost always more complicated than elbow injuries.

There seems to be little chance that Mo will pitch this weekend.

Then again, maybe he just has a cranky body and was getting his physical.
