Yankees and Pettitte Agree to Deal

The New York Yankees and Andy Pettitte have agreed to a one-year, $11.75 million contract on Wednesday. This season will be Andy’s 13th season in Yankee Pinstripes. According to Bryan Hoch, GM Brian Cashman met with Pettitte’s agent more than once yesterday to discuss the possibility of the south paw’s return to the Bronx.

Andy Pettitte was huge for the Yankees last year becoming a dominant pitcher later and later into the season. He posted a 14-8 record with a 4.16 ERA in the regular season. Pettitte was dominant in the postseason for New York also. He was 4-0 in 5 postseason starts. He clinched the ALDS, ALCS, and the World Series against familiar-foe Pedro Martinez in New York.

This move is great. The first three spots in the starting rotation will be a bit easier to fill out now.
