Martin impressed by Pettitte’s bullpen

Russell Martin caught Andy Pettitte’s bullpen this afternoon and offered this rave review: “That’s as good of a bullpen as I’ve caught all spring — from anyone.”

Pettitte said he felt “terrible” at first but got his juices going later in the session. He threw all of his pitches and Martin said he was impressed by Pettitte’s command and intensity.

“It’s like a game, even when he’s just throwing a bullpen,” Martin said.

“I’d never caught him before so I had no knowledge of him,” Martin said. “I had no base of what I’m used to seeing from him. I was just going in there like a 2-year-old kid not really knowing what’s going to happen. … He looked great. He threw all his pitches and he just kept executing pitch after pitch after pitch. I think it’s just a matter of him getting his pitch count up right now. It’s just one bullpen, but it was a really good one.”-Chad Jennings (LoHud)
