Friday September 14th, 2012

The New York Yankees announced on Thursday that lefthander Andy Pettitte will rejoin the rotation on Tuesday. Pettitte has been out since June 27 with a broken fibula.


On Wednesday in Boston, Pettitte threw a 55-pitch simulated game and said, according to Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News: “I felt like my command was really good again today and my stuff, everybody ... thought my stuff was great. Hopefully I can get back in there and try to get into the rotation. That’s what I would like to do.”
