Update: Pettitte, A-Rod get positive news during checkupsBy
11:24pm: Both Pettitte and A-Rod got positive news from their checkups. Andy is not quite ready to get back up on a mound, but he will ramp up his flat ground work. A-Rod should be able to swing a bat by the weekend.
5:31pm: Via Josh Thomson, both Andy Pettitte (leg) and Alex Rodriguez (hand)) will have x-rays later tonight to check up on their fractures. Mark Teixeira hasn’t swung a bat all weekend, but he will take ground balls and run through some drills tonight in anticipation of returning to the lineup tomorrow. I’m willing to bet he gets another day off just to be safe; no reason not too really.
