Report: Andy Pettitte to decide if he'll continue playing by end of next week

Yankees southpaw Andy Pettitte will reportedly decide if he'll continue his playing career by the end of next feel, according to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman:

Pettitte, 40, went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA in 12 starts for the Yankees last season. He was sidelined for more than two months with a fractured ankle after a ground ball struck it in June.

Pettitte was drafted by the Yankees in the first round of the 1990 draft. He has spent the majority of his 17-year career with the team and is the MLB's all-time leader in postseason wins (19). After months of speculation, Pettitte announced his retirement in February 2011. He returned as a guest instructor for the Yankees during spring training in 2012 and then signed a minor league contract with the team worth $2.5 million.
