Mariano Rivera took the mound and threw live batting practice today, another step forward as he rehabs from offseason shoulder surgery. Mo was originally scheduled to throw thirty pitches, but he felt so good that he threw an extra ten pitches. In case you’re wondering, the last time Mo threw forty pitches in a regular season game was August 4th, 2004, when he threw 51 pitches in two innings against Oakland. The Sandman is scheduled to make his official preseason debut against the Pirates this coming Tuesday.
