Yankees: Mariano Rivera Coming Back For One More Year
Legendary closer Mariano Rivera and the Yankees have made it official – the all-time saves leader still wants to close games and the Yankees still want the ninth inning to begin with the Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’.
‘Mo signed a one-year deal worth $10-million dollars on Thursday – the same day her turned 43 years old – with incentives that could reportedly get him another $5-million dollars.
That would match the $15-million he made last year, despite his season ending ACL tear while shagging fly balls prior to a game in Kansas City – something he’d done for years without injury.
After the ugly injury, Rivera made clear his intentions to return, telling reporters to ‘write it down in big letters’ that he would rehab and make a comeback, insisting he couldn’t ‘go out like this’.
