Yankees offseason plans

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.

Will Pettitte return?

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."

Injury updates Sizemore, Pettitte, Kazmir

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians’ CF Grady Sizemore could be facing arthroscopic surgery on his left elbow that would sideline him for four to six weeks if the inflammation doesn't respond to treatment in the next two weeks. 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.

Joe Girardi told the New York Post he thinks Andy Pettitte will start June 3 against the Rangers. The Post speculates if Pettitte can't go, the Yankees will have Chien-Ming Wang ready. Girardi plans to discuss with GM Brian Cashman today how to best utilize Wang, who has thrown five scoreless innings in two relief outings but is best suited as a starter.

The St. Petersburg Times quoted LHP Scott Kazmir as feeling good. Although there is no timetable, Kazmir also said his bullpen session went great and he’s hoping to avoid a minor-league rehab assignment. Also, Manager Joe Maddon believes RHP Andy Sonnestine can make the necessary adjustments to put his struggles behind him.
