Mariano Rivera Injury Update: Yankees Star Runs into Complications at Doctor
New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was hoping to get his torn ACL repaired sooner rather than later in order to begin rehabilitation and prepare for the 2013 season. Unfortunately, things are not going as planned for the future Hall of Famer.
According to George King of the New York Post, doctors found a complication that prevents them from operating on the knee at this time.
“We ran into complications,’’ agent Fernando Cuza told The Post. “I am referring to Dr. Ahmad and [Yankees general manager] Brian Cashman for further information.’’
Neither Cuza nor the Yankees would elaborate on what was discovered when Rivera met with Yankees team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad, Dr. Russell Warren, the Giants’ physician, and David Altchek, the Mets’ doctor, who performed surgery on Rivera’s shoulder after the 2008 season.
While that sounds like it would be cause for great concern, Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York says things may not be as serious as the initial report suggests.
On Tuesday morning, a high-ranking team official said the complications weren't that serious at this point. The Yankees were still gathering further information and, with any complications related to surgery, it can't be good news.
The only thing we can say with absolute certainty right now is, we know nothing. Rivera is going to do everything he can to return to the Yankees next year, presumably for a farewell tour and to ride off into the sunset with another championship.
With so much uncertainty surrounding Rivera right now, all the Yankees and their fans can do is hope that whatever the problem is corrects itself soon and he is able to go under the knife to avoid this whole thing being dragged out for weeks or even months.
