New York -
After completing 18 seasons in the majors, Mariano Rivera, the closer for the New York Yankees, finally decided that it's time to retire from Major league Baseball after the conclusion of the 2013 season.
New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman has let it be known his all-star third baseman's hip injury might turn out to cause even more heartache than has already been suggested. Last week the Yankee boss said Rodriguez could even miss the entire 2013 season.
Pitcher Brandon Morrow shrugged off his recent struggles in a big way on Sunday afternoon as the right hander silenced the New York Yankees bats in an impressive eight inning shutout performance.
