40-year old righty closer Mariano Rivera keeps rolling along for the New York Yankees. “The Sandman” has pitched in 58 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Yankees and he is 3-3 with 32 saves, a 1.58 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP. He has only allowed 37 hits in 57 innings pitched so far this year while whiffing 44 and walking 11. Rivera has now pitched in 975 games (10 starts) in 16 years with the Yankees and he is 74-55 with 558 saves, a 2.22 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Rivera is closing in on Trevor Hoffman for the all time lead in saves in major league history. The 42-year old Hoffman has 600 saves right now but he’s going to have a hard time finding a team over the winter that will let him close.
