Rival scout gives %'s of Rivera's Changeup
- "Finally, a rival scout scoffs at the notion that Yankees closer Mariano Rivera will throw more changeups this season.
"He throws 50 changeups a year, 40 in the spring," the scout says.
Rivera had a good chuckle when informed of the comment; the scout, he says, had it right.
"I'm just having a good time," he says of his flirtation with the changeup. "Maybe I'll throw 60 this year.""
