Yankees Sign Mariano Rivera

The Yankees have come to an agreement on a one year contract with Mariano Rivera. They agree to a contract worth $10 million on Marinao Rivera's 43rd birthday. This ensures that the Yankees will have the greatest closer in history for at least one more season. Rivera tore his ACL in May while shagging fly balls in Kansas City that put him on the DL for the rest of the year.

The Yankees have a very formidable bullpen however, they still need to sign one more reliever. They can use a Freddy Garcia-type to mop up and be the long man out of the bullpen. Other than that, they seem to be set in the later innings with Joba Chamberlain, David Robertson and Mariano Rivera. Also, David Aardsma is coming off Tommy John surgery and could provide a huge boost for the Yankees. Aardsma had a 38 save season for the Mariners in 2009 and 31 saves in 2010.
