Mariano Rivera to have knee surgery on June 12th


Via Chad Jennings, right-hander Mariano Rivera will have surgery to repair his torn right ACL on June 12th, next Tuesday. They had to wait for the blood clot in his calf to clear out (it has) and for him to strengthen the area around his knee. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Atlchek in New York. Mo said he isn’t thinking about returning to pitch this year but did say “miracles happen.” I wouldn’t count on it.
