Mariano Rivera Injury Update: 'Complications' That Have Slowed Surgery Not Expected To Be Serious

Mariano Rivera has experienced "complications" that have so far kept the New York Yankees closer from setting a date for surgery to repair his torn right ACL, his agent told the New York Post.

ESPN reports that the complications are not believed to be serious and should have "no bearing on Rivera's ability to have surgery and return from the injury."

Rivera injured himself last week, but surgery still has not been scheduled.

"We ran into complications,'' agent Fernando Cuza told the New York Post, explaining why surgery was not scheduled. "I am referring to Dr. Ahmad and Brian Cashman for further information.''

Cashman said, according to the Post: "I won't comment on that right now."

The Yankees are still trying to gather information after Rivera met with a specialist and a team physician.
