Mariano Rivera (knee) is scheduled to throw a light bullpen session Wednesday.

It will be the first official bullpen session of the spring for Rivera, who is coming back from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. The 43-year-old said last month that he was at about 95 percent, so barring any unforeseen setbacks, he should be fine for spring training and Opening Day. He should be plenty valuable in fantasy leagues despite the absence.
