The early part of the Yankees offseason has been filled with waiting, since much of what they are going to do will depend on free agents Andy Pettitte and Hiroki Kuroda.
Pettitte, 40, could give the Yankees a timetable for his answer this week.
The lefty indicated throughout the season he was leaning toward returning to The Bronx after coming out of retirement earlier this year.
He also said he wouldn’t make the Yankees wait nearly as long as he did last year, when he didn’t make up his mind until spring training.
The Yankees could use an answer soon and would like it to be “Yes,” because even with Pettitte around, they will have questions regarding their rotation.
MAY give a TIMETABLE this week? This is what passes for Yankees news these days?
