The Yankees are finishing off a contract with closer Mariano Rivera and expect the deal to be completed by Friday, according to a baseball official who was consulted on the contract.
The two sides have agreed on the parameters of a one-year deal, the official said, and spent Thursday trying to finish off final details of Rivera’s salary and incentives.
Happy 43rd birthday to the best closer ever.
Jon Heyman is reporting it as a $10M deal plus incentives. Whatever the terms, I’m just glad we’ll have him back for one more year.
I guess we’re back, although still on the old host. I’ll hopefully have things moved over at some point in the next few weeks and apologize for the possible disasters you may see when I get my hands into website managing.
