Pettitte to return to Yankees

Less than a week after Jorge Posada and his father both said he was leaning to retirement, Andy Pettitte changed his mind and decided to pitch for the Yankees in 2008.

Details are still coming in, but it is believed Pettitte will pitch for the $16 million that was his original contract option.

Pettitte was 15-9, 4.05 last season and had a brilliant start in Game 2 of the ALDS.

The Yankees remain interested in Minnesota lefty Johan Santana, knowing that Mike Mussina and Pettitte could be gone after next season. But Pettitte’s return would lessen the sting of not landing Santana.

Pettitte’s return was first reported by the Houston Chronicle. Agent Randy Hendricks confirmed the story this morning.
