Andy Pettitte’s setback cost him 7-10 days

Last week we learned that Andy Pettitte had something of a setback in his rehab, but that it wouldn’t cost him any time. Those facts are no longer operative:

“We have to let the healing process take its course,’’ said Cashman, who expects to see Pettitte pitching next month in the big leagues. “He had that setback which cost him a week to 10 days, but he is in the middle of the healing process.’’

This shouldn’t be critical for the Yankees, who still have a quite comfortable lead despite their recent struggles. But they really are gonna want him back for the playoffs.

    I’m surprised there hasn’t been a write-up of the Girardi ejection yesterday.

      whats there to say about it? The ump blew the call by calling the same play foul and then fair. case closed

    Girardi mocking the call and grabbing his nose on the way out was priceless though!

    Funny that if heals properly and comes back with two weeks or so to go, the Yanks are actually in better shape because he’ll be well rested, again. We saw that he needed just a little while in the bigs to be Pettitte again once this season.

      Hopefully he will have enough time to get some pre-playoff innings in.
