Pettitte feels fine after bullpen session

By

Via Marc Carig, Andy Pettitte felt fine during his 25-pitch bullpen session today, though he did not throw with maximum effort. His next throwing session will come either Sunday or Monday.

With any luck, Andy will be able to throw with full effort next time around, which should put him in a position to throw a simulated game and then a rehab start a two. The minor league season ends in less than two weeks, so chances are he’ll have to make any rehab starts during the playoffs. That would be a pretty nice boost for the minor leaguers, no?

    A big step in the right direction.

    although i don’t think we should go dancing in the streets yet. Was just 25 pitches and not at full effort. As mike says hopefully the next session is full effort and then we can really start cooking with gas.

    Gooooood news.

    I danced around my house a bit but agreed with those that said it wasn’t full effort. Still, it’s much better news than a setback. And he said he was losing sleep over it, which is ADORABLE. :3

    MEMO FROM: NY Yankees

    MEMO TO: Scranton

    The guys up here feel real bad and all about taking away your best starting pitcher, Ivan Nova, right as you start your playoffs. We have a guy hanging around here, Andy Pettitte, who might be able to help. Be there soon.

    I don’t like the idea of rehabing during a playoff game. There might be an atmoshere more to win than to just throw pitches to get healthy.
