Blood Clot Holds Up Rivera's Surgery

The complications surrounding Mariano Rivera knee exam the last couple of days have finally been revealed. Mo met with the media at Yankee Stadium a short time ago and every beat writer, YES employee, NY /NJ paper columnist all tweeted at once that Mo has a blood clot in his right calf.

Rivera was understandably concerned and a little unnerved by the doctor's finding. Surgery would naturally be delayed by a clot, but Marc Carig of The Star Ledger just tweeted that the surgeon wants Rivera to regain strength and range of motion anyway.

While Rivera had hoped to possibly return late in the season/post-season, Brian Cashman quashed those thoughts yesterday and said baseball's greatest closer won't be back until 2013.
