The New York Daily News speculates Andy Pettitte could be the key to how hard the Yankees go after another starter this offseason.
The Yankees may ask the lefty to make a decision more quickly than in years past and if Pettitte does return, as expected, it means there's less pressure to land Jon Lackey. Either way though, the Yankees plan to let the market develop before showering players with lavish offers.
Other tidbits.... multiple sources have indicated that the Yankees would like to bring back Johnny Damon but Hideki Matsui is likely gone.
And, in the New York Post , the Yankees denied reports that right fielder Nick Swisher is available. According to a club official, the switch-hitting Swisher isn't being shopped.

The New York Daily News speculates Andy Pettitte isn't finished and wants to return to the Yankees in 2010.
He also said he does not want to repeat the lengthy contract process from last offseason.
"I really would hate . . . I really don't want to go into the offseason, you know, and sit there and be a free agent again, have to worry about other people making me offers and whatever," Pettite said.
"Once I get closer, I can start thinking about that. Maybe start talking to my family and my wife about that."

Sizemore said he was feeling most of the pain throwing. Indians head athletic trainer Lonnie Soloff said Sizemore has synovitis, an inflammation of the joint lining in his elbow. An MRI showed no structural damage or bone chips in the elbow.
