BALTIMORE. New York Yankees closer, Panamanian Mariano Rivera, has soreness in his left groin, an injury that could sideline him into the weekend.

Rivera said he first began to feel sore on August 15 in Seattle. The right-hander has pitched in five games since then, including Monday and Tuesday, when he recorded his 37th and 38th saves against Baltimore.

"I've had groin issues, but this is new. It's the left leg, which is good because you don't push off that leg," Rivera said. "It's nothing to worry about; we'll go day by day. I'll play as soon as possible."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Rivera was not going to pitch Wednesday regardless of the score.
