Andy Pettitte to announce retirement from baseball
The 38-year-old left-hander will announce his retirement in a news conference Friday, the Associated Press is reporting, citing an unnamed source. Pettitte, who has told the team he probably won't play in 2011, is a free agent and has not attempted to negotiate a contract.
The story was first reported by YES Network's Michael Kay.
After 16 seasons in the major leagues, Pettitte has a 240-138 record with an ERA of 3.88. He has a league-record 19 postseason wins.
