Kuroda, Pettitte and MO all Back Next Season!!

1 Dec

Kuroda, Pettitte and Mo all resigned a one-year deal with Yankees!



Seeking stability in their rotation, the Yankees on Tuesday turned to the same place they found it a year before. The club re-signed Hiroki Kuroda to a one-year contract worth a reported $15 million plus incentives, answering perhaps the most critical question of New York’s offseason.



Pettitte and the Yanks officially agreed to a one-year contract on Wednesday, as the 40-year-old left-hander quickly set aside any thoughts of retirement in favor of putting the pinstripes back on for another season.

The game’s active wins leader with 245 victories, Pettitte will earn a base salary of $12 million for his services, plus potential awards bonuses.



One day after suffering a season-ending knee injury, Mariano Rivera defiantly addressed a group of reporters in the visiting clubhouse of Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium, vowing to pitch again and saying to “write it down in big letters.”

On Thursday, Rivera and the Yankees attached some fairly large numbers to that promise. New York and the all-time saves leader agreed to a one-year contract worth $10 million, plus awards incentives.


So, the priority contracts are sealed. Next will be a right outfielder, a backup shortstop and a catcher! Though Cashman seems to be confident that Yankees’ catcher next season could be on our roster now, I think there is still need to find one outside. Cervelli and Stewart are considered second-tier, not the every-day regulars. We’ll see. I believe Cashman has all planned out, or he wouldn’t have that easily let go of Russel Martin, would he?
