Andy Pettitte is scheduled to make his final rehab start with Double-A Scranton on Tuesday, according to Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger. If all goes well, he will return from the disabled list next Sunday against the Orioles.
“I feel like I’m a healthy player and I’m good to go.”
Pettitte tossed four scoreless innings Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with the Thunder. The 38-year-old left-hander is 11-2 with a 2.88 ERA and 90/38 K/BB ratio over 18 starts this season. He has been sidelined since July 19 due to a strained right groin.
Assuming he returns as expected next Sunday, there should be enough time for him to get three starts leading into the postseason. A healthy and effective Pettitte will go a long way towards deciding their fate in October.
