Andy Pettitte continues to make progress in his rehab from a strained left groin.

According to Mike Mazzeo of the Newark Star-Ledger, the veteran left-hander threw a 55-pitch bullpen session on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium and reported feeling “good.”

“I threw 30 pitches like a warm-up, sat down for about five minutes and threw a good, hard simulated (25-pitch) innings,” said Pettitte.  “I felt good and had no discomfort in there at all.  This is definitely the best I’ve felt, I just want to continue to go out there and not have any problems.”

Pettitte was off to an incredible start this season before the groin issue sidelined him in mid-July.  Once healthy, he will return to an 11-2 record, a 2.88 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.  He’s also fanned 90 batters in 115.2 innings and allowed only 38 walks.  The Yankees believe he is a little under two weeks from returning to the starting rotation.
