NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Pettitte is staying with the New York Yankees next season.
The left-hander signed a one-year deal with the Yankees worth $12 million on Wednesday, putting baseball's biggest postseason winner back in pinstripes.
Pettitte turns 41 in June. He retired after the 2010 season, then decided to come back this year and signed a contract guaranteeing $2.5 million.
Pettitte went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 12 starts. He missed almost three months because of a broken lower left leg, sustained when he was hit by a line drive off the bat of Cleveland's Casey Kotchman on June 27.
The AL East champions have a projected rotation of CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, Phil Hughes, Ivan Nova and Pettitte for next year.
Pettitte is 245-142 lifetime with the Yankees and Houston in 17 seasons. He is 19-11 in the postseason.
The Yankees designated catcher Eli Whiteside for assignment.
