Late yesterday afternoon, Mike reported the news, via Mark Feinsand, that Andy Pettitte may miss his next start. Well, when word of Feinsand’s story hit the Yankees’ clubhouse, both Andy Pettitte and Joe Girardi issued denials, and now the story is different. As Feinsand writes in his updated post, Pettitte will start on Sunday but could earn himself an extra day of rest the next time through the rotation. Clearly, Pettitte isn’t 100 percent; his post-All Star Break numbers are terrible, and he could be suffering from the ever-popular fatigue. We’ll see how this one develops, but the Yanks can ill afford to lose Pettitte right now.
