Pettitte to pitch Wednesday for Trenton
Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte is scheduled to pitch for the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Wednesday, expected to throw 80 to 85 pitches, manager Joe Girardi said.
This rehab start, set for 7:05 p.m. ET against Erie at Waterfront Park in Trenton, would put Pettitte two or three turns away from joining the big league rotation. That is a nice boost considering the setback the Yankees had with Michael Pineda’s right shoulder.
