Pettitte gives up six runs in latest minor league startBy
Via Marc Carig and Bryan Hoch, left-hander Andy Pettitte gave up six runs in his latest minor league tune-up start today. He threw 95 pitches, which is the good news. Joe Girardi downplayed the results, saying most of the damage was wind-aided. Getting stretched out really is the most important thing at this point.
The Yankees have said they want Pettitte to throw 100 pitches in at least two minor league starts before considering him for the big league rotation, though I assume this game counts since 95 is close enough to 100. Either way, it’s all but guaranteed that Andy will make at least one more minor league start. That could out him on track to rejoin the rotation late next week if all goes well.
