Old-Timers' Day not in Mo's immediate future
NEW YORK -- Mariano Rivera spent his Sunday morning on the field at Yankee Stadium, mingling with former teammates and Yankees greats before the 66th Old-Timers' Day celebration, but the injured closer insisted he is not ready to participate in the annual celebration just yet.

"I'm not an old-timer yet -- not for another two or three years," Rivera said.

Rivera refused to get into specific details of his rehabilitation from June 12 surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, but he maintained that he'll return to the Yankees' bullpen next season, adding that he feels good.

The 42-year-old right-hander wore a soft brace on his knee and walked without any obvious limp.
