Via George King: Mariano Rivera has been battling “severe” headaches for two weeks and went for tests on Friday. “It was severe … When you have issues you want to make sure everything is OK. They said it seems like migraine headaches,” said Mo, who underwent a CAT-scan and blood test.
Rivera, 43, said the headaches haven’t impacted his pitching and he is expected to throw an inning today. The doctors still haven’t told him how he will be treated, so hopefully they get on that pretty soon. Brian Cashman said the team wasn’t concerned there is something more serious going on (concussion?), but obviously it’s good to know the tests didn’t reveal anything major. Still … getting pretty sick of this injury stuff.
