Mariano Rivera was back on a mound today. While filming a commercial, Rivera made roughly 25 throws in Tarrytown. As Bryan Hoch reports, it was Rivera’s first time on a mound since he tore his ACL in May.
“I’m feeling good,” Rivera said. “The rehab has been great; it’s been tough, but at the same time, I’m seeing good results. I can’t wait to continue and stay 100 percent. A day at a time, like I always tell you guys. A day at a time.”
Rivera said the same thing that Brian Cashman has said, that the two sides are talking but there’s no deal in place for Rivera to return next season. However, neither side seems particularly worried about getting a deal done and getting Rivera back into the bullpen one more time.
