CLEVELAND -- When a 41-year-old closer says his arm is sore and he's unavailable to pitch, it's a big deal. When it's the best closer of all time, it's a bigger deal.

Mariano Rivera insists this isn't.

Rivera said he has "a little soreness" in the lower triceps of his right arm, just above the elbow. He wasn't available to pitch in the Yankees' 6-3 loss to the Indians Monday night, but said he hopes to be able to pitch Tuesday.

"I'm not concerned about it," Rivera said. "Not at all. [Just] little things that happen."

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Rivera's absence led him to leave starter A.J. Burnett in the game longer Monday night. Handed a 2-0 lead in the seventh inning, Burnett gave up four runs, three on an Austin Kearns home run. Girardi said he was holding David Robertson out as his fill-in closer.

Girardi said that at this point, he's not concerned about Rivera.

"If it goes on for a few days, you'd be more concerned," he said.

Rivera said the soreness had nothing to do with what happened Sunday against the Mets, when he issued his first walk since May 28 and then suffered his first blown save since May 18.

"When I'm pitching, I don't feel anything," he said.

You were a fan since the 70's (impressive). then u should know that it is rare to be called captian as a yankee. with that being said Jeter worked hard for the yankees in the earlier years and he hasnt been bad until recent. One thing about Jeter is he has shown consistency of being a captian. He may be in a slump right now after all that he has done for the yankees and there fans we should give him a break.

The Padres have Will Venable batting leadoff. He is just plain awful so be thankful you have a 1st ballot HOFer batting leadoff for you. Sometimes you Yankee fans just don't realize what the rest of the country goes through. Not every team has the luxury of having a .300 hitter at the leadoff spot every single year. Some teams actually have a salary cap supposedly.
