Mariano Rivera is coming back ladies and gentlemen. The all-time saves leader has agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with the New York Yankees according to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports. Jon Heyman of CBSSports adds that Rivera's deal includes incentive and awards bonuses.
Rivera was planning to retire after the 2012 season, but after injuring his knee and missing almost the entire season he decided to come back for one more year.
The 43-year old reliever went 1-1 with a 2.16 ERA, 1.89 FIP, 8.6 K/9, 2.2 BB/9, 0.0 HR/9 and 5 saved games in 8.1 innings for the Yankees in 2012.
