Yankees Rumors: Andy Pettitte Committed to Pitch in 2013

While left-hander Andy Pettitte hasn’t reached a deal with the New York Yankees yet, he “has committed to pitch next year,” reports Mark Feinsand the New York Daily News.

There were reports yesterday that the Yankees were nearing an agreement with Pettitte. While nothing was confirmed, the amount of the pending deal was reportedly just over $10 million for 2013.

However, Feinsand says sides are not nearing an agreement. Still, if Pettitte has committed to pitch in 2013 all signs would point to him returning with the Yankees, meaning it’s likely just a matter of time before a new contract is announced.

Pettitte returned to baseball last season, signing with New York in March. He was limited to 12 starts due to injury, but he was effective when he did make it to the mound. The 40-year-old posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.87 and 1.142 over 75 1/3 innings and owns a career ERA of 3.86 over 17 seasons at the major league level.
