NEW YORK (WFAN) — David Robertson hasn’t yet been handed the keys to Mariano Rivera’s kingdom.
He may not be anointed the Yankees’ closer for awhile. Or ever. Until someone officially gets the job left behind by the retired Rivera, the possibility remains that Robertson — considered by many to be the heir apparent — could be back in his old setup role.
Either way, he’s ready to contribute.
“It’s alright,” Robertson told Sweeny Murti during WFAN’s Yankees hot stove show Wednesday. “Eighth, ninth, whatever. I’m going to do whatever I can do.”
