Andy Pettitte returns today
“As a man, my desire to work is back,” Pettitte said last week. “Once (Yankees GM Brian Cashman) and I spoke in December, and I started working out again – I don’t know if it was because I had eight months off or a year off – but my desire to work is just back. I love working.
“For me, I guess, as a man, that right now is overriding. … When you pray about something, which I’ve done continuously on this, and I talk to my wife (Laura), and she feels good about it, then I’ve just got to follow what I feel like my heart is telling me to do, man. And this is where I’m at right now.”
Pettitte is meeting the media for a 6 p.m. ET press conference outside George M. Steinbrenner Field, so there should be plenty of talk about Andy’s comeback all day long. We’ll keep you updated on all of the latest here, on Yankees.com and on MLB.com.
