Rivera climbed back atop a mound for the first time since his season-ending injury. His tosses were part of a commercial shoot, during which he gleefully destroyed a wooden camera shield.
“I’m feeling good,” said Rivera, who made about 25 throws on the Hackley School’s snow-covered diamond. “The rehab has been great; it’s been tough, but at the same time, I’m seeing good results. I can’t wait to continue and stay 100 percent. A day at a time, like I always tell you guys. A day at a time.”
No comment in the article from anyone with the Yankees opining on how cool it was that their future Hall of Famer closer’s first work off a mound since his injury was on a “snow-covered diamond.” But I assume they knew about it.
They did know about it, right?
