Breaking: Andy Pettitte is making a comeback

This tweet from Jack Curry of YES will blow your freakin’ mind:

Curry is reporting that the Yankees have signed Pettitte to a one-year deal. It’s worth $2.5 million. It has since been officially announced by the Yankees.

This represents one of the more stunning turnarounds we’ve seen in some time. I mean, in recent weeks and months Pettitte has repeatedly said that he is retired for good.

But now?  Shocker.

ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports that the Athletics and catcher Chris Herrmann have agreed to a contract. It’s a one-year deal worth $1 million with performance incentives, per Fancred’s Jon Heyman.

Herrmann, 31, spent last season with the Mariners, batting .237/.322/.421 with a pair of home runs and seven RBI in 87 plate appearances. He opened the season at Triple-A Tacoma, then was called up in late May. Herrmann battled an oblique injury during the season as well.

Herrmann figures to back up Josh Phegley behind the plate in 2019.
