New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte said he will consider playing into the 2013 season this winter, reports Brian Heyman of The Journal News:

"I hate it," Pettitte said. "I wish I knew what I was going to do next year. But I’ll get to the offseason and think about it and try to figure out if this is something I want to do again or not.

"I can probably say that when I came back, I thought there was no chance that I was coming back (next season), that this was a one-year deal. But getting hurt and only having (about) 60 innings right now when you were hoping to have a couple hundred innings under your belt, it definitely gives me the option to consider coming back again next year, that’s for sure.

"I’m hoping to get a lot of work still this year. So we’ll what happens as this year continues on."

Pettitte will return for the Yankees tonight when they take on the Toronto Blue Jays. As the 40-year-old alluded to, he’s only logged fifty-eight and two-thirds innings thus far this season due to an ankle injury. Over nine starts, Pettitte has maintained an ERA of 3.22.

If Pettitte is willing to return for another season, the Yankees have said that they would consider re-signing him.
