Yankees and Rivera agree to a one-year deal

So it was a Happy Birthday for Mariano Rivera and every Yankee fan who was born on November 29. The Yankees and Mo agreed to a one-year/$10M deal.

Jon Heyman was the first to tweet about it:


#yankees and mariano rivera have agreed on a $10M guarantee for 2013. will also have awards/incentives.

This is good news heading into the weekend before the Winter Meetings. Next order of business, making sure the Yankees have a catcher behind the plate to work with all of the pitchers they re-signed this past week.
