Update: Pettitte’s x-ray shows good progressBy
4:35pm: Following today’s game, Joe Girardi said the x-ray showed that the leg/ankle were healing well. “He’s better, he’s definitely better,” said manager Joe Girardi. Pettitte is still a ways off from getting back up on a mound, but this is obviously good news.
11:00am: Via Meredith Marakovits, left-hander Andy Pettitte will have his fractured left ankle x-rayed today to see how things are healing. He did say he’s feeling much better of late, so that’s good news. Andy suffered a bit of a setback about a week ago after doing a little too much work while the team was out in Oakland. Hopefully things are going well and he can return to the club in early-September — he’s going to need a few tune-up type starts before diving into a potential postseason series.
