TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees reliever David Robertson is not overanalyzing his role as Mariano Rivera's replacement.

Robertson is moving from an eighth-inning setup man to closer following Rivera's retirement.

He says "Throwing the eighth or ninth inning, you've still got to get three outs. You've got to be effective. You can't give up a lead. I'm not going to try to overthink the whole situation."

Given the chance to fill in as closer when Rivera injured a knee in 2012, Robertson strained muscle in his left ribcage. Rafael Soriano took over as closer for the rest of the season. Robertson went 5-1 with a 2.04 ERA in 70 games last year, striking out 77 in 66 1-3 innings.
