Still no new contract for birthday boy Mariano Rivera, but ESPN’s Jayson Stark reports that the deal is expected to be finished tomorrow. [2] 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. [3]
