Pettitte retired in February of 2011, after months of speculation of his future. Pettitte agreed to join the Yankees in 2012 as a “guest instructor” which must have given him the itch, because he signed a contract with the Yankees.
On July 1, 2013, in a game against the Minnesota Twins, Pettitte became the Yankees all-time strikeout leader with 1,958. On September 6, 2013, Pettitte recorded his 2,000th strikeout with the Yankees.
