While the news on Michael Pineda is not good, everything seems to be going a-okay with Andy Pettitte‘s comeback attempt. The Yankees confirmed today that Andy will made his next minor league start with Double-A Trenton this Wednesday and is scheduled for 80-85 pitches. They want him to make at least two starts of 100 pitches before considering him for the big league roster, so Pettitte is still at least three starts. Still, it’s good news. If you want to catch Wednesday’s game in Trenton, you can buy tickets here. I suggest not hesitating.
Anyway, here is tonight’s open thread. Old buddy A.J. Burnett is coming off the DL to start for the Pirates tonight, plus MLB Network will air a different game later on. The Rangers and Devil both have playoff games tonight and the Nets are in action as well. You folks know what to do, so have at it.
