Andy Pettitte threw five innings and 66 pitches in an Extended Spring Training game today rather than travel across the state with High-A Tampa. He allowed two runs on four hits and no walks, striking out five. A whopping 58 (!) of those 66 pitches were strikes. That’s almost hard to believe. The Associated Press says that Andy will make his next start with Double-A Trenton, but the team hasn’t confirmed the report. Pettitte has been sharp each time out so far, which is obviously great news. Gotta think he’s still three or four starts away, however.
