NEW YORK (AP) — Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was examined Monday by three doctors at two hospitals as he determines where he will have knee surgery.

New York general manager Brian Cashman said Rivera was seen by team physician Dr. Christopher Ahmad at New York Presbyterian Hospital and by Dr. Russell Warren, a knee specialist at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Rivera's agent, Fernando Cuza, said Dr. David Altchek, who performed surgery on the pitcher's shoulder following the 2008 season, also looked at him.

The 42-year-old Rivera tore the anterior cruciate ligament and damaged the meniscus in his right knee last Thursday at Kansas City when he stumbled and fell while shagging fly balls during batting practice. He likely will miss the rest of the season.
