Yankees Pitching Notes: Pettitte, Pineda Updates

Andy Pettitte pitched in a low level minor league game on Monday. He started and went three innings (32 pitches), allowing one earned run. They were encouraging results in all, as all reports were good following the outing.

Pettitte is scheduled to start again on Sunday, and is expected to throw around 60 pitches as he continues to stretch it out and work his way back from over a year-long hiatus.

There’s no official timetable from the Yankees on when they would expect Pettitte to be ready for major league action, but all signs are pointing positively towards sometime in May.

Michael Pineda, meanwhile, has only begun light throwing from flat-ground. There’s no word yet about when he’ll be back on a mound or when he’ll get in some game action to begin a rehab process.

But, Pineda did confirm that the soreness he felt in his shoulder that landed him on the D.L. is gone.

Largely in part because I was a huge Yankees fan and the Bombers were amidst their late-1990's dynasty. But, unlike most of my peers and friends, my passion for sports has stuck with me and has only intensified. I never lost sight of my childhood obsession. Instead it has only developed further and has become an authentic passion. I have now graduated from college and have begun my pursuit of a career within the sports industry that will hopefully be filled with endless success and happiness.
