Andy Pettitte News: Will Start on Sunday Against Mariners

  @jtalty on
Andy Pettitte is 240-138 with a 3.88 ERA in his career.
Andy Pettitte has come out of retirement to play for the New York Yankees.

New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte will get his first start of the season on Sunday against the Seattle Mariners, according to general manager Brian Cashman.

There had been some debate as to whether to promote Pettitte in the minor leagues, where is a 0-2 with a 3.71 ERA, or just move him up to the big leagues. The Yankees ultimately decided on moving him up to a start on Sunday with the team's starting pitching rotation somewhat in shambles.

It will be Pettitte's first start since a loss to the Texas Rangers in the 2010 ALCS.

The 39-year-old signed a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Yankees in March after retiring in 2010. At the time of his retirement he cited a loss of the drive and hunger that made him a successful starting pitcher.
