More than a month after injuring his knee, Yankees closer Mariano Rivera had surgery on his torn ACL Tuesday.

The surgery was delayed because he developed a blood clot in his right calf.

Major League Baseball's all-time leader in saves tweeted that the surgery was a success and that he is looking forward to starting rehab.

Rivera is not expected to return to the team until the 2013 season.
