Pettitte cleared to begin runningBy
Doctors have cleared Andy Pettitte to begin running following yesterday’s checkup, a big obstacle in his return from a fractured left leg. The left-hander did some fielding drills today and will throw another simulated game tomorrow, unofficially his third. He threw three innings and 46 pitches over the weekend, so I assume he’ll ramp it up to 60-65 pitches next time out. Based on how things have been progressing, it seems that we could see Andy back on the mound in meaningful games within two weeks or so.
