Pettitte ‘feeling good’ down in Tampa

By

As Andy Pettitte works his way back from a strained groin, the left-hander told the Associated Press yesterday that he is “feeling good.” As part of his rehab, he went through running and agility drills and made approximately 90 throws. He has been out since July 18 and hopes to make a quick return to the mound. Dustin Moseley will start in his place tomorrow.

In other injury news, Al Aceves is ready to take the next step in his return from a back injury. After throwing a bullpen session yesterday, Aceves will either throw live batting practice later this week or head out on a rehab assignment. Anything they get out of the Mexican Gangster this year will be gravy and could be a huge boost to the team’s beleaguered bullpen as well.

    Only Aceves can save us from the Chad Ho Moseley hydra. All other efforts have failed. SAVE US, ACE!

  2. Getting Ace back is the best thing for the yanks’ bullpen. They need more arms to solve their middle inning woes. This is how most middle relief bullpens are built – by getting as many arms as possible. No one is a 6th or 7th inning specialist. The Yankees just need to throw as many arms as they possibly can into the pen and see which guys emerge as the most reliable.

    Ace in his place as the helpful inning eater.

    Not surprising for Pettitte to say that. If Aceves was on the 60 day DL doesn’t that mean someones gotta go?

    Petitte…the anti-Ellsbury
