Pettitte will come off DL and start on TuesdayBy
Andy Pettitte will be activated off the DL and start next Tuesday against the Blue Jays, manager Joe Girardi announced this afternoon. He’ll be taking David Phelps‘ spot in the rotation. Pettitte declared himself “ready” following his latest simulated game yesterday, though he’s going to be held to a 75-pitch count in his first start back. The Yankees will have to make a 40-man roster move to activate Andy off the 60-day DL, and I suppose it could be Derek Lowe on the chopping block. Don’t quote me on that though.
