Pettitte: I’ll start Wednesday
Andy Pettitte was up and around the Yankees clubhouse this afternoon, showing hardly any ill effects from the stiff lower back that bumped him from last night’s start after five-plus innings.
“I don’t think there would be any way I would not make my start,” Pettitte said.
Pettitte said that he felt worse on Monday at Arlington when his back locked up in pursuit of a batting practice fly ball, but he still was able to start last night. That tells him that everything will be ready to go Wednesday against the Rangers in New York.
“It’s nowhere near as bad as it was when I hurt it originally,” Pettitte said. “I’m very encouraged.”
