Mariano Rivera is declining another invitation to the All-Star Game, this time because of the triceps soreness that bothered him the last few days.

“I’m not going to go because I want to make sure that I’m 100 percent,” Rivera said. “The three days will be good to rest.”

Rivera said he had inflammation that caused the soreness, but that he’s feeling better and is good to go again tonight.

Angels closer Jordan Walden will replace him on the AL team.
