NEW YORK -- Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees are nearing agreement on a one-year contract in the range of $10 million to $12 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday.
Pettitte, who turns 41 in June, retired after the 2010 season and then decided to come back this year and signed a contract guaranteeing $2.5 million.
He went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 12 starts, missing nearly three months with a broken left leg after he was hit by a liner drive off the bat of Cleveland's Casey Kotchman broke his left fibula on June 27.
New York also is negotiating with closer Mariano Rivera, who turns 43 tomorrow.
