Andy Pettite will return to the Yankees, as expected, in 2013.
The veteran left-hander signed a one-year deal for $12 million, with more in bonus potential, to return to the franchise he’s spent all but three years of his big-league career with, according to a report on the team’s website.
Pettitte, who will turn 41 in June, went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 12 starts this past season for New York after sitting out all of 2011 in a one-year retirement.
For his career Pettitte is 245-142 in 501 games with a 3.86 ERA after breaking in with the Yankees in 1995. Except for three seasons in Houston from 2004-06, he’s been a Yankee his whole career. Pettitte’s been especially valuable in the postseason totaling a 19-11 career playoff mark with a 3.81 ERA in 44 starts.
