Pettitte to return in 2008

Andy Pettitte has told friends and family that he will return to the Yankees in 2008.

From Jose De Jesus Ortiz:

That wait is over, and the Yankees have been informed of the decision by Pettitte’s agent, Randy Hendricks.

When reached by telephone this morning, Hendricks, who was in route to Nashville for the start of baseball’s winter meetings today, confirmed that he has advised the Yankees that Pettitte will play for them in 2008.

“Many teammates have called urging Andy to return as well as manager Joe Girardi,” Hendricks said. “It’s well known that the Yankees have publicly stated that they were ready for Andy when Andy was ready.” (Houston Chronicle)

This is great news. The Yankees don't have to be desperate for Johan Santana. With Pettitte back, the rotation is very solid.
