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

Quote:
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
Quote:
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."
