On the disabled list with a strained groin, Andy Pettitte did some running, participated in agility drills, and threw from flat ground today at the Yankees’ spring training complex in Florida, saying afterward that he’s “feeling good.”
Pettitte was 11-2 with a 2.88 ERA before suffering a Grade 1 groin strain while throwing a pitch against the Rays on July 17. Initially expected to miss 4-5 weeks, Pettitte has indicated that he’s made some good progress and now hopes to return slightly ahead of schedule.
Sergio Mitre struggled stepping into the rotation for Pettitte over the weekend, so the Yankees have bumped him back to the bullpen and are turning to Dustin Moseley to pitch Thursday against the Indians.
