According to Bryan Hoch of MLB.com, Pettitte allowed one run on two hits over three innings while striking out two, walking one and throwing one wild pitch. Both hits were doubles and the lone run scored on a sacrifice fly in his second inning of work. He threw 26 out of 32 pitches for strikes.
Pettitte, 39, came out of retirement last month and signed a one-year, $2.5 million minor league contract with the Yankees. He’s effectively going through what we’d normally see from a starting pitcher during spring training, so he’ll likely need three or four more starts before being fully stretched out. If all goes well, he should make his return to the majors in May.
