Rivera to have surgery next week

Mariano Rivera will undergo shoulder surgery on Oct. 6.

The 39-year-old closer didn't pitch much in September, but he was able to pitch the final three outs in Yankee Stadium's history and was able to preserve Mike Mussina's 20th win this season.

He pitched 70 2/3 innings this season, notching 39 saves, striking out 77 and walking six.
