Talks Progressing For Yankees, Rivera

8:08pm: Jon Heyman of reports on Twitter that no deal appears imminent.

7:53pm: The Yankees are "quietly closing in on a contract" with Mariano Rivera, according to Ken Fidlin of the Toronto Sun. Rivera is seeking a two-year deal, but the Yankees haven’t yet agreed to sign him for more than one season, according to Fidlin. 

Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal reports that the team will talk to agent Fern Cuza this week, and could very well have an agreement in place by the end of next week's winter meetings.
