Mariano Rivera is back with the New York Yankees. Sort of.

Rivera is a sophomore at Iona College, where he started 12 games and pitched five complete games in 2014. He posted a 2-5 record with a 5.40 ERA in 70 innings pitched, with a fastball that toppped out at 92 mph, according to SB Nation. [tweet align=’center’]
