Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte was placed on the disabled list on July 20 with a Grade 1 strain of his left groin and told that he would miss four-to-five weeks. Things haven’t run as smoothly with his rehab as the Yankees would have liked, but progress is being made now.
According to Chad Jennings of The Journal News, Pettitte threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Sunday and reported feeling great afterward.
“I heated it up pretty good,” he said. “I just felt good.”
Pettitte, 38, thinks he can be ready in two weeks. He will return to a stellar 11-2 record, 2.88 ERA and 1.20 WHIP, and will play a major role down the stretch for the Yanks, who are tied for first place with the Rays in the American League East.
