Mariano Rivera told the media today that he will have surgery on his torn ACL next Tuesday. Here's a little more on the story from Dan Martin:The surgery will be performed at Hospital for Special Surgery by Dr. David Altchek. Rivera said he isn’t concerning himself with an exact timetable after the procedure.
“I don’t want to have that,” said Rivera, who learned that the clot was gone last week. “I don’t want to put in my mind a line. When the Lord permits it to be ready, it will be ready.”
And while he isn’t concerning himself with the possibility of returning this season, he hasn’t completely ruled it out.
“I don’t want to think about it,” Rivera said. “Again, miracles happen. I just have to be able to do what I was doing before. That’s what I want.”
