    Mariano Rivera: I'm coming back

    New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has informed the team he intends to pitch next season, general manager Brian Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com's Andrew Marchand on Saturday.

    "He wants to play again," said Cashman, who was informed by the reliever of his decision Friday. "I'll work with his agent, Fernando Cuza, on the details of a contract."

    After he crumbled to the turf and tore his ACL in Kansas City in early May, Rivera vowed he would return in 2013.

    "I'm coming back," an emotional Rivera said in Kansas City a day after the injury. "Put it down. Write it down in big letters. I ain't going down like this."

    The negotiations for a new contract could be a bit complicated. Rivera made $15 million last season, but even with the front office's utmost respect for him, it is unclear what it will offer him considering he would be returning after a season in which he pitched in only nine games.

    In Rivera's place this past season, Rafael Soriano thrived as the Yankees' closer, converting 42-of-46 save chances. Soriano could opt out of the final season of his contract. Soriano's agent, Scott Boras, hinted that Soriano would choose free agency but said a final decision had not been made.

    No big surprise here. He said he wasn't going to go out like that when he got hurt (Wow, I didn't read the article. This kind of makes me look stupid lol). I expect him to be around 2 or 3 more years, or whenever the Yankees win their next championship.

    Good call by Mo.

    Our greatest glory is not in never failing. But rather in rising back up every time we do.

    He's a free agent, so they will need to re-sign him to a new deal.

    I am sure he will get his full 15 million considering Soriano will be gone most likely.

    I don't think there's anything to be worried about as a Yankees fan. He'll definitely re-sign with the Yankees.
