The return of free-agent left-hander Andy Pettitte to the Yankees is “virtually inevitable,” according to a source with knowledge of the pitcher’s intentions. While a deal is not imminent, it is believed that the two sides will eventually come to an agreement on a one-year deal.
The signing of Pettitte would likely end the Yankees’ pursuit of other free-agent pitchers, namely right-handers Derek Lowe and Ben Sheets.
Sabathia, Wang, Burnett, Pettitte and Chamberlain, in that order, would be a sweet rotation.
Left, right, right, left, right…Fastball/Slider, Power Sinker, Fastball/Curve, Cutter, Fastball/Slider. It’s a nice mix and match.
