Rivera plans to announce career plans
February 13, 2013
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera says he's reached a decision on whether this will be his final season and plans to announce it before opening day.
``Yes, I have,'' Rivera said Wednesday after the Yankees' first spring training workout for pitchers and catchers. ``But again, I will tell you guys when I think it's the right moment.''
The 43-year-old reliever had surgery June 12 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, an injury that occurred while he was shagging fly balls during batting practice in Kansas City on May 3.
The right-hander expects to be ready for the regular season. He threw 25 pitches off a bullpen mound and said it felt good.
``It was wonderful to be out there again,'' Rivera said.
