For years, we’ve run a Yankees news stream on the site [scroll down and look over to the right]

One of the headlines caught our eye this morning…

CBS New York:

Yankees fans were hoping to hear good news — if you could call it that — and perhaps a timetable on Mariano Rivera’s expected knee surgery.

The word that came out of the injured closer’s examinations Monday won’t do much to assuage their worst-case fears.

“We ran into complications,” Rivera’s agent, Fernando Cuza, told the New York Post. “I am referring to Dr. (Christopher) Ahmad and (Yankees general manager) Brian Cashman for further information.”

Rivera was seen Monday by three doctors at two hospitals. He was still expected to have season-ending surgery on his torn right ACL, though Cashman wouldn’t elaborate on what the “complications” might have been.

“I won’t comment on that right now,” he said, according to the Post.
