The Yankees brought back Andy Pettitte yesterday, so you knew it was only a matter of time before Mariano Rivera was back in the fold.
The Yankees and Rivera have reportedly agreed to a one-year, $10MM deal that includes incentives that could earn baseball's greatest closer another $5MM.
Mo missed most of the 2012 season when he ripped up his right ACL while shagging fly balls in Kansas City. I wouldn't expect him to discontinue his pre-game ritual, though maybe he should skip it in KC.
