Andy Pettitte signs minor league deal with Yankees

TAMPA, Fla. - (AP) - Pitcher Andy Pettitte is making a comeback with the New York Yankees.

The Yankees announced Friday that Pettitte had signed a minor league deal with the team with an invitation to big league spring training. The 39-year-old Pettitte last played in 2010. The left-hander sat out last season, but was with the Yankees in camp this spring as an instructor. He recently threw batting practice for the team. Pettitte is 240-138 lifetime. In his last season with the Yankees, he was an All-Star and went 11-3. For many years, Pettitte was an ace for the Yankees and one of their most dependable pitchers in the postseason.
