New York Yankees RP Mariano Rivera (knee) has been throwing and running, and he's excited to get back to work at spring training this year. "I'm throwing a little bit, I'm running," Rivera said. "Once I get there, the weather will be better, and the time will be the right time to start pushing the legs. I have six more weeks to get ready, so I have all confidence that everything will be fine." Manager Joe Girardi also expects Rivera to be fully ready by opening day. Girardi said he will likely defer to Rivera when deciding his Cactus League schedule.
