Reports surfaced this week that Mariano Rivera was leaning more toward retirement than a comeback, but the legendary closer now says he plans on pitching next year.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told, he and Rivera spoke on the phone and the all-time saves leader said he he’d be back in 2013.

Rivera, just shy of age 43, tore his ACL in May, fielding fly-balls during batting practice.

‘Mo said then that he’d back for at least another year and ‘wasn’t going out like this.’

Rivera’s $30 million dollar, two-year deal expired at the end of the season. It could be interesting to see what type of money the bombers money conscious front office will offer, but don’t expect either side to seriously consider ‘Mo in anything other than pinstripes.
