At least, that’s what Jon Heyman is saying. He even has numbers, saying the deal should be worth roughly $12 million.

Looks like the Yankees could leave these Winter Meetings with an new impact center fielder, Andy Pettitte signed to a one-year deal and the top Rule 5 pick adding depth to the major league roster. That’s four days well spent in Indianapolis.

UPDATE, 10:52 p.m.: Speaking of news on Twitter — you fine folks in the comments are already all over this one — Jayson Stark is reporting that the Yankees are shopping that No. 1 Rule 5 pick.

UPDATE, 11:23 p.m.: Joel Sherman is saying the Pettitte deal is done. One year, $11.75 million.
