Still no new contract for birthday boy Mariano Rivera, but ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports that the deal is expected to be finished tomorrow. Stark says the deal is expected to be worth $11-12 million, a modest cut from the $15 million Rivera made last season. Stark’s report fits with what I’ve heard this week — and what most every other Yankees beat writer has been reporting — that the Yankees and Rivera have the basics in place and expect the deal to be finalized before next week’s winter meetings.

UPDATE: Jon Paul Morosi hears the deal will be worth $10 million.
