The New York Yankees hope to sign reliever Mariano Rivera to a new contract before the winter meetings next week, reports

Rivera, who made $15 million last season, missed nearly all of last season after tearing knee ligaments in his right knee last May.

Rivera has already informed Yankees general manager Brian Cashman that he plans on returning. Cashman and Rivera's agent, Fernando Cuza, have been discussing the parameters of a new deal. Rivera is expected to sign a one-year contract in what could be the final season of his career.
