STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Brian Cashman says that the Yankees are already big offseason winners for retaining veteran starting pitchers Andy Pettitte and Hiroki Kuroda as well as closer Mariano Rivera.

New York's general manager spoke to the media after practice jumps down the side of Stamford's Landmark Building on Friday. The workout was in advance of a charity event Sunday.

Pettitte and Kuroda were given one-year deals that will cost the Yankees approximately $27 million. Rivera is expected to return on a one-year deal worth $10 million that could be announced next week.

"I think Pettitte is a big thing," Cashman said. "Kuroda was a big thing. I think we're having a successful early campaign to our winter because we've able to retain some high-end, high-caliber starting pitching and if you look at the marketplace, I'm not sure if anyone is doing better than us right now."

The Yankees won the American League East last season, but were swept by Detroit in the ALCS.
