Stark: Deal imminent between Yankees and RiveraBy
Via Jayson Stark: A new contract between the Yankees and Mariano Rivera is expected be completed by tomorrow. The two sides have already agreed to the parameters of the deal, but they’re still hammering out the exact salary details. Stark says the contract is expected to be worth $11-12M with incentives that could push it up to $15M total, but Jack Curry hears the base may be $10-11M. No big deal either way.
