CLEVELAND — New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will miss his second straight game because of a sore right arm muscle.
Rivera felt soreness in his triceps while playing catch before Tuesday's game against the Cleveland Indians. The 41-year-old reliever, who was not available for Monday's game, said he is not concerned by the discomfort. Rivera said his arm feels better, but he doesn't want to take any chances and make it worse.
He said he would only pitch in "an emergency" but would rather sit another day. Rivera is hopeful he can pitch in Wednesday's series finale.
The 12-time All-Star has 21 saves and 1.91 ERA in 35 games. He has 580 career saves, the most in AL history and 21 behind leader Trevor Hoffman.
