Mariano Rivera and the New York Yankees are trying to downplay it as no big deal. But, Rivera apparently has a groin injury, and if it is something that might linger for a while that is awful news for the Yankees playoff hopes.
Peter Abraham has the details. Here is what Rivera said about the injury.
"I feel good. I feel good. There is soreness in the groin. We’re just taking precautions but I’m OK.
"I felt it a little bit yesterday therefore I wasn’t able to pitch today. But I wasn’t going to pitch today anyway. But like I said, everything is going to be fine. Nothing to worry about."
