Rivera, now in his 17th season in the big leagues, recorded his 600th save at Seattle on Tuesday.
- He also has 42 saves in postseason play.
"Mo is awesome," Rodriguez said. "You just run out of things to say about him. Every save he's had in his career meant something, and tonight was another example of that."
Blue Jays manager John Farrell called Rivera "the standard by which all are compared."
"If you're a fan of baseball and the game, you appreciate how good he is, how consistent he is," Farrell said.
The tying save came in Rivera's 60th appearance of the year, surpassing former Yankees teammate Mike Stanton
- with a record 14 seasons of 60 games."...
