Rivera Close to Re-Signing

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera (3-4/3.15/30SV) is expected to agree to a deal that would bring the future Hall of Famer back to New York to finish his career.
Rivera has been holding out for a guaranteed fourth year, but with no other clubs interested in offering that, he may sign back with the Yankees for the previous offer of $45 million for three years, making him the highest paid closer in baseball.

Rivera owns the American League saves record with 443 and is third on the all-time list. His post-season excellence exceeds all pitchers with a playoff record 34 saves and a 0.77 ERA.

Originally a starting pitcher for the Yankees, he moved to the set-up role for John Wetteland in 1996 an became the full time closer by 1997.
Rivera is also the longest tenure Yankee who could pass it down to Derek Jeter in three years.
