Mo to start throwing next week

Via Bryan Hoch, Mariano Rivera says his surgically repaired knee isn’t yet 100%, but it’s close. “It’s not 100 percent. It would be, I would say, 95 percent,” Rivera said at a clinic for children yesterday. “By the time Spring Training starts, it’ll feel 100 percent.” Rivera tore the ACL back in early May, and had the surgery delayed by susbsequent blood clot, so the schedule here isn’t much of a concern with six weeks left until pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report (and perhaps a bit more time until Mo is expected to arrive in Tampa).Rivera also said that he expects to begin throwing next week, and anticipates having a “normal” Spring Training schedule.

    "Rivera also said that he expects to begin throwing next week, and anticipates having a “normal” Spring Training schedule." …and that's a very good thing.
