[2]Mariano Rivera says his knee still isn’t quite 100 percent, but he’s sure it will be in time for spring training.

“It’s not 100 percent. It would be, I would say, 95 percent,” Rivera said today at a youth pitching clinic in Connecticut. [3] “By the time Spring Training starts, it’ll feel 100 percent.”

Rivera told Bryan Hoch that he’s been rehabbing more or less daily, and he plans to resume throwing in about a week.

“It needs more strengthening,” he said. “The five percent will come quick.”
