    Maybe they don't want to put him in a major league game where he may be tempted to do some things before he's physically ready to do so, causing an injury. I think it's a good idea to move slow considering the age and length of the layoff.

    You do realize Pettitte turns 40 in less than two months and with a year away from pitching, they need to get his trunk area in shape just like his arm. We don't need him over exerting himself and pulling groins and such.

    I'm hoping that between not getting into the rotation until mid-May and maybe juggling the rotation around to give him an extra day here and there(plus days off), that Andy will hold up just fine. He may not even need it.
    The fact that Jamie was already 9 years old, striking out Little Leaguers when Andy was being born is an eye opener. Pettitte's just a pup.

    No reason to rush him IMO. Make sure he's in prime shape before you call him up. Pettitte is a guy who's value is at its highest in the 2nd half/playoffs when the games get more crucial.

    I'm with you on Garcia though. The Yanks have other options they should look at. It seems they dont want to stretch Phelps out, but why not give Warren or Mitchell a chance? Warren has had 2 real good starts, 1 bad one. Mitchell's been lights out so far.

    Re: Andy Pettitte makes a comeback

    Sitting here on a beautiful night watching Andy pitch up close and personal. Doesn't get too much better than this.

    Pettitte looked really good through 3. Looked like he was getting tired in the 4th. Lost command and was getting hit pretty hard. Still only gave up one run in the inning.

    He has 2 ERs through 4 but it really should be 1. First inning the defense botched an easy grounder that was inexplicably not called an error. Led to a run.

    I don't know what his pitch count is but I assume he is coming out for the 5th.

    81 pitches: 59 strikes/22 balls. That's it for Pettitte, who comes out after allowing a leadoff single to start the 6th. Final line for Pettitte: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K.

    Andy's a pro but I'm worried about this comeback, he isn't exactly shutting down minor league hitting.

    I think working on his pitches and stamina is more of a focus right now than his box score. Sure, it'd be comforting if he was blowing everyone away in the process but I'd love to hear more about how his stuff/command looked than how many H or ER he allowed.

    Exactly. It's ST for him.

    Andy Pettitte will remain with the Double-A Trenton Thunder and make his next start on Monday against the Portland Sea Dogs. He is expected to throw 90-100 pitches.
