Mariano Rivera Injured

by Fred Schwarz

The all-time saves leader twisted his knee while shagging flies in the outfield before tonight’s game in Kansas City.  A fan who watched the video reports, “Rivera’s knee buckled and he landed awkwardly, and he was in severe pain.”  Not good news if you’re a Yankee fan, though perhaps baseball’s best set-up man will become its best step-up man too.

UPDATE:  Torn ACL.  Probably a career ender.
