Via Dan Martin: Left-hander Andy Pettitte could give the Yankees a “timetable” sometime this week. Does that mean he’ll tell them he’s going to return? When he’s going to have a decision about his future? Something else? Your guess is as good as mine.
Pettitte, 40, pitched to a 2.87 ERA (3.48 FIP) in 12 starts and 75.1 innings sandwiched around his leg injury this year. He said he wanted to make a decision about 2013 as quickly as possible following the team’s ALCS exit, indicating that he hoped to have an answer within a month. It’s been almost exactly a month now, so hopefully he gives the Yankees an answer soon one way or the other so they can move on with their offseason. Most believe Andy will come back next year, but it’s not a guarantee.
