The 40-year-old lefty was effective before getting hurt, going 3-3 with a 3.22 ERA. But he isn’t sure yet about coming back for another season.I don't know about you, but I would be very happy to have Pettitte back for one more season.
That said, the injury has at least ensured the possibility of a return by the postseason’s all-time winningest pitcher.
“I hate it,” Pettitte said. “I wish I knew what I was going to do next year. But I’ll get to the offseason and think about it and try to figure out if this is something I want to do again or not.
“I can probably say that when I came back, I thought there was no chance that I was coming back (next season), that this was a one-year deal. But getting hurt and only having (about) 60 innings right now when you were hoping to have a couple hundred innings under your belt, it definitely gives me the option to consider coming back again next year, that’s for sure.
“I’m hoping to get a lot of work still this year. So we’ll what happens as this year continues on.”
