Andy Pettitte scheduled to start Monday

By

Joe Girardi announced this afternoon that Andy Pettitte will rejoin the rotation on Monday against the Indians. He’s been on the DL with a trap strain for about two weeks now, and he threw a 75-pitch simulated game earlier this week. I’m guessing Vidal Nuno, tonight’s starter, will be sent down tomorrow to clear one spot for Mark Teixeira/Kevin Youkilis, with Pettitte then stepping into the rotation spot next time around.

    If only he could play SS….

    If Nuno pitches well tonight I have a hard time seeing them send him down.

      Would you keep him over Phelps or Warren?

      You gotta remember that room needs be made for Teix and Youk, too.

      You must be new at following the Yankees, and their “unusual” decision making process.
