The Yankees expect to hear Andy Pettitte's decision within a few days

The Yankees expect to hear from Andy Pettitte within the next few days about whether he intends to pitch again in 2013 or retire. They remain hopeful he will pitch.

Pettitte was reached by Jack Curry of YES Network by text but declined to reveal his plans. A person with Yankees ties said he believed it was "80 to 90 percent'' that Pettitte would pitch.

Pettitte suggested he'd probably come back after going 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in his comeback season last year. But he hasn't been heard from in the six weeks since the season ended, leaving at least some intrigue.

Pettitte will receive a nice increase from the $2.5 million he received in '12, though his negotiation is hampered by the fact he will only pitch for the Yankees or retire.
