Mariano Rivera’s first bullpen session is over. He threw 21 pitches to Francisco Cervelli, with Cervelli pointing and nodding every time Rivera hit his spot.
Rivera was throwing with minimal effort, just taking it nice and easy, throwing to the target. For the most part Rivera seemed to be simply throwing strikes, but Cervelli had him occasionally working specifically to the inner half and seemed happy with those results.
A lot of pointing and nodding on those pitches.
