Pettitte throws off a half mound

By

Chad Jennings delivers the good news. Andy Pettitte threw 25 pitches off a half mound today, which puts him one step closer to a return. He says he’ll throw another bullpen before making a rehab start. He’ll need at least one before he joins the rotation.

    Hooray :D :D :D

    (I enjoyed LoHud’s “Pettitte gets on the mound” headline though, so I could make dirty jokes about it)

    If there’s grass on the field, play ball.

  3. Januz says:

    All jokes aside, this is great news. Once we get Andy and Ace back, they will be as close to full strength as they have been in months.

    According to Michael Kay this will be “a trade”

    The Yankees are obviously desperate to get him back. They have the best record in baseball and they are rushing Andy for no reason. They pickup all these new players at the deadline that they don’t really need. Just a desperate, greedy, organization.
