The New York Yankees are in serious contract negotiations with veteran left-hander Andy Pettitte for a one-year deal worth $11 million, reports the New York Post.
Pettitte turned down a Yankees offer worth $10 million last January. But when he decided to un-retire in March the Yankees offered him $2.5 million and he took it.

While Ichiro Suzuki would like to remain in pinstripes and the New York Yankees would welcome the outfielder back, a deal has not been completed yet. Contrary to earlier reports, Ichiro and the Yankees have not agreed on a one-year deal worth $5 million. The news of a deal not being done yet comes from Sweeny Murti of WFAN.
Ichrio was traded to the Yankees prior to the trade deadline...
Although he’s drawn “a lot of interest” from other teams,
free agent outfielder Ichiro Suzuki is waiting to see if the New York Yankees
want to bring him back before deciding where he’s going to play next season,
reports George A. King III of The New York Post.
“They are going after pitching first which is what the
Yankees normally do,’’ Tony Attanasio...
A person familiar with the negotiations says Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees are nearing agreement on a one-year contract in the range of $10 million to $12 million.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because talks are ongoing.
Pettitte, who turns 41 in June, retired after the 2010 season and then decided to come back this year and signed a contract guaranteeing...
Yesterday, we avoided arbitration with Eli Whiteside -- NYC's new Eli -- who we fished off the scrap heap. We signed the guy to a $625,000 contract, a lot of squid for somebody who hits .125 lifetime. Oh, and he's 33!That gives us the following catchers:Austin Romine (the eternal prospect) Frankie Cervelli (the eternal overlooked)Chris Stewart (the eternal backup)Eli Whiteside...
Taking a break from football and basketball and other fall sports - Looks like the New York Yankees will sign not only Pettitte but Mariano Rivera and Hiroki Kuroda for the 2013 season. I love Pettitte and I thought he did well when he wasn't injured last season, so I'm always happy whenever he returns. Mariano will be 43 but as a closer, age shouldn't be too much of...

With Hiroki Kuroda returning for the 2013 season, the New York Yankees will hope to get a key component for their starting rotation as they await the decision of Andy Pettitte.
The importance of Pettitte’s decision might be even greater now that Kuroda is back, and it would be easy to believe that the Yankees would want some...
The New York Yankees are optimistic they can work out deals for veteran lefty Andy Pettitte and closer Mariano Rivera in the coming week, sources told Ken Rosenthal.
The deal for Pettitte would likely be for one year and in excess of $10 million. Rivera would command more, Rosenthal tweeted.
Pettitte, 40, made 12 starts for the Yankees last season, going 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA after...
For everybody out there who wants us to trade a prospect, consider this very real on-field lineup: (Age next year)c: Chris Stewart (31)lb: Mark Teixiera (33)2b: Robbie Cano (30)ss: Derek Jeter (39)3b: Alex Rodriguez (37) lf: Ichiro Suzuki (39)cf: Curtis Granderson (32)rf: Raul Ibanez (41)dh: Eric Chavez (35)p: Andy Pettitte (41)p: Mariano Rivera (43)Any chance we could sign Bernie...
These are the type of posts I absolutely dread writing. Projections, predictions, prognostication, life-line reading, forecasting, reading the smoke from a burned sacrifice; they all have their place, but often rely so heavily on things out of personal control, or flat out guessing, that indulging in them is largely a time wasting exercise. You can [...]
From the New York Yankees dynasty of the late 90′s to early 2000′s, only Derek Jeter, Andy Petitte and Mariano Rivera are left. Since 1996, all three have been key parts to their championship success. With Petitte close to signing a new contract worth $11 million, the Yankees remain optimistic they’ll be able reach a … Continue reading »
Another week, another starting pitcher returning for the New York Yankees. According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Yankees and left-hander Andy Pettitte are close to agreeing on a one-year contract worth close to $11 million. The deal means the Yankees will have the top of their starting rotation (C.C. Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda and Pettitte) returning for the 2013 season.
While the New York Yankees remain the favorites to sign Russell Martin, they are not the only team pursuing him.
The free-agent catcher also is drawing significant interest from the Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners and Pittsburgh Pirates, according to major-league sources.
The Rangers, in particular, could pose a threat to the Yankees, who intend to be under the $189 million...
As we wait for the right-field situation to resolve itself, I frequently find myself frustrated that there is no Babe DiMaggio ready to take over the position from Nick Swisher — or ready to take over any other position, for that matter. Now, I know that Babe DiMaggio types are hard to come by, but [...]
