KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera says he will return to the mound by 2013.

A day after tearing his right anterior cruciate ligament while shagging fly balls during batting practice, the 42-year-old closer said he does not want his career to end this way.

Rivera said Friday: “I can’t go out like this.”
