WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Mariano Rivera could be pitching once again for the Yankees.

Not the recently retired legendary reliever and Purchase resident, but his son.

The Yankees drafted Mariano Rivera Jr., a right-handed pitcher for Iona College, in the 29th round (872nd pick) of the 2014 draft Saturday.

The 5-foot-11, 155-pound Rivera was 2-6 with a 5.40 ERA for the Gaels this spring, his sophomore season.
