More than a month after injuring his knee, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera had surgery on his torn ACL Tuesday.
The surgery was delayed because he developed a blood clot in his right calf.
Major League Baseball's all-time leader in saves tweeted that the surgery was a success and that he is looking forward to starting rehab.
Rivera is not expected to return to the team until the 2013 season.
