We passed one of the annual milestones of training camp this morning when Mariano Rivera, who trains according to his own unique schedule, threw his first bullpen of the spring, a couple of days earlier than usual. According to Joe Girardi, Mo threw 22 pitches and "felt fine, just like the Mo we're used to seeing.'' It is expected that Rivera will pitch his customary eight or so innings this spring, usually starting with the second week of pre-season games, before heading into the regular season.
