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.
