NEW YORK -- Mariano Rivera will likely finish up his career in Yankees pinstripes, as the future Hall-of-Fame closer is reportedly set to sign a two-year deal with New York.

According to the New York Daily News, citing a source familiar with the negotiations, the deal will be worth $30 million and could become official by Friday.

Rivera has only played for the Yankees during his illustrious 16-year career. He showed no signs of slowing down in 2010, converting 33-of-38 save chances to go with a minuscule 1.80 earned-run average in 61 games out of the bullpen.

The 41-year-old has made at least 45 appearances in every season following his rookie campaign in 1995.

The 11-time All-Star and five-time World Series champion owns 559 career saves and is tops amongst active pitchers in ERA (2.23).
