NEW YORK (AP) - All-time saves leader Mariano Rivera and the New York Yankees have finalized their $10 million, one-year contract.
After missing most of the season because of a knee injury, Rivera accepted a cut in guaranteed money from his $30 million, two-year deal that had covered the last two years.
Rivera, who turned 43 on Thursday, can earn an additional $500,000 if he is MVP of the league championship series, $1 million if he is MVP of the World Series and $1 million if he wins the Rolaids Relief Award.
New York also agreed Friday to a one-year contract with utilityman Jayson Nix that pays him $900,000 in the majors and $300,000 in the minors, then designated Nix and right-hander Mickey Storey for assignment. The Yankees claimed right-hander Jim Miller off waivers from Oakland.
