Interesting note passed along by the Yankees:

With Bartolo Colon starting tonight, Mariano Rivera has a chance to join Goose Gossage and John Franco as the only relievers in Major League history to record saves in games won by six different Cy Young Award winners. That’s according to Elias, of course.

• Rivera has saved games for Dwight Gooden, David Cone, Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson and CC Sabathia.

• Gossage saved games for Ron Guidry, LaMarr Hoyt, Catfish Hunter, Sparky Lyle, Gaylord Perry and Rick Sutcliffe.

• Franco saved games for John Denny, Gooden, Orel Hershiser, Bret Saberhagen, Tom Glavine and Frank Viola.
