The Yankees Are Still Working With Mariano Rivera

ALCS: Michael King and Injured Yankees Relievers Travel With Club for Clinic on Tuesday

New York Yankees All-Star closer Mariano Rivera has been having some problems with his right lat for a while, but that’s only one area of his game that he still needs to improve on. The Yankees do not expect him to throw his fastball in the middle of next spring training, if reports are to be believed, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be working with him on other things.

Former Yankees reliever Michael King, who had just returned from a year in Japan, has been diagnosed with an injury that caused a tear in his lat muscle. According to reports, King broke his lat muscle while he was on the roster with the Orix Blue Wave, and was injured during offseason workouts with the club. King returned to the Yankees in 2008, and he got his first big-league win at the end of last season, but he suffered an injury while he was rehabbing his shoulder after the final game of the season.

In 2009, he worked with the club’s minor league team, going 1-3 with a 4.28 ERA in 13 chances out of 20. He was traded to the Blue Jays after the season, and spent the rest of 2009 in the minors, finishing with a record of 4-9, in 23 appearances with a 4.50 ERA.

If he does undergo surgery on his lat muscle, he has the potential to be available for spring training and possibly a full-time role in 2014. If that’s the case, the Yankees may need to make a decision to bring him back or just let him play in Japan in the minors.
