Pettitte's Coming Back

ESPN's Buster Olney is reporting the Yankees are close to a deal that will bring back Andy Pettitte to the Bronx. The deal is a 1 year deal at a $6 million base salary with another $6 million offered in incentives. This could make the deal worth $12 million.

Pettitte will be the 4th or 5th starter for the Yankees this season. The move will now give the Yankees the best rotation in baseball and gives them the pitching depth they lacked last season. Youngsters Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy will be the 6th and 7th starters if any of the starting 5 go down due to innjury. It's certainly a move the Yanks needed to make. I'll have more throughout the day as more details become available.
