The wait may be coming to an end, as the Yankees are expecting a decision to come from Andy Pettitte, as early as this week perhaps, on whether or not the veteran lefty wants to pitch in 2013.
Pettitte, 40, returned to the Yankees last season after being retired for all of 2010. He picked up right where he left off, going 5-4 with a 2.87 era in 75 innings pitched. He was sidelined for about two months after a line-drive broke his leg, but returned late in September to help the Yankees make it all the way to the ALCS.
It’s been speculated that it’s Yankees or bust for Pettitte, meaning that he’ll don the pinstripes or retire. Since he showed he still had a lot left in the tank this past season, many think he’ll decide to return for a full season. According to the New York Daily News, Pettitte has begun his training regiment to see if his body responds well enough. He said at season’s end he would like to make a decision within a month.
