Rivera out with back spasms..may miss Friday's game.

DETROIT -- The New York Yankees placed outfielder Gary Sheffield on the 15-day disabled list Thursday and All-Star closer Mariano Rivera hurt his back while getting dressed before their game against the Tigers
Rivera, who said he hoped to be ready for Friday night's series opener in Baltimore, didn't enjoy watching Farnsworth's collapse

"Feeling like this is horrible," Rivera said. "It's tough -- real tough. That was my job out there. I was pulling for Kyle."

Torre wasn't hopeful.

"The way he's walking around, I don't think it is going to change too quickly," he said. "He's pretty uncomfortable."
