Feinsand: Rangers make their pitch to Pettitte

Tweet [1]

ALCS Rangers Yankees BaseballMark Feinsand has the story over at The Daily News.

The Texas Rangers have reached out to Andy Pettitte. [2]According to Feinsand’s source, Rangers team president Nolan Ryan reached out to Pettitte in hopes of convincing the left-hander to stay close to home and pitch in Texas.

Previously, Pettitte has indicated that he will pitch for the Yankees or no one next season, but he has been lured back to Texas in the past and it’s hard to blame Ryan for at least pleading his case.

Looks like the Rangers might be competing against the Yankees for more than Cliff Lee this winter.
