Mariano Rivera has a mild case of bursitis in his right elbow and won't pitch until the end of the week. According to reports, Rivera should be able to throw a side-session on Friday. Hopefully, this isn't anything to be overly concerned with. Joe Torre told reporters:

"If you're going to have a result, this is one you can live with," Torre said, but later admitted that injuries to Rivera always are a little alarming because "he's like one of your regular players. He plays every day, when you win. So you're always concerned, but we weren't concerned for very long because the tests came back quickly." (N.Y. Daily News)

Carl Pavano tossed four scoreless innings against the Pirates in an exhibition game last night, and Tino Martinez hit a two-run dinger.
