Mariano Rivera set to announce retirement plans

By Kristin Ambrosino,

New York Yankees Mariano Rivera plans to announce whether this will be his final season before opening day.

According to Fox News, Rivera had surgery on June 12 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, which occurred while he was shagging fly balls during batting practice in Kansas City on May 3.

Rivera expects to be ready to keep shagging fly balls in regular season, but he plans to wear a precautionary brace on his knee for the games this year. According to Newsday.com, he made his decision on whether he will retire after he went through a full workout this past Wednesday, which included a rare first day bullpen of 25 pitches.

Don't worry Mo fans, the Yankee's all-time best closer, with 608 saves, plans to be the same old Mo this upcoming regular season.
