According to WEEI’s Mut & Merloni, the New York Yankees have signed Andy Pettitte to a one year minor league contract. Yes guys, it’s the Red Sox arch rival Andy Pettitte.
According to Mut & Merloni’s radio show on WEEI, Jack Curry of YES is reporting that Pettitte signed a minor league contract with the Yankees thats reportedly worth $2.5 million. I would assume that the reason it’s a minor league deal is to give the lefty a chance to get ready in the minor leagues, but what does this mean for the Red Sox?
Honestly I can’t tell you. If the report is accurate you have to ask the question, can Pettitte make a comeback? He was a great pitcher with the Yankees in his prime but he’s 39 years old now and hasnt pitched since 2010. I have a hard time believing that hes anything more than insurance for the Yankees.
Check back soon for more details on Andy Pettitte signing one year minor league deal with the Yankees. As soon as I know more you will know more.
