The Yankees seem to have at least a partial answer from Andy Pettitte.

According to The Daily News, Pettitte has informed the Yankees that he will not open the season as an active pitcher. He has not ruled out joining the Yankees at some point, but he will not break camp with them and might have pitched his final game.

“I don’t think he’s determined if he’s officially finished or not, but he’s chosen at this stage at least not to start in 2011,” Cashman said at the baseball owners’ quarterly meetings in Arizona. “If that ever changes he’ll call us. We’re not going to hound him or bother him.”
