Because of the rain, Andy Pettitte is throwing a bullpen session today. It’s too wet in Tampa for anything other than indoor work. Pettitte will not pitch in a game until Wednesday the 17th.
“He’s got four more starts,” Joe Girardi said. “We’ll make sure that he sees live people.”
Joba Chamberlain will pitch out of the bullpen behind Pettitte on Wednesday. Phil Hughes will pitch in relief of A.J. Burnett on Tuesday.
UPDATE, 12:19 p.m.: Pettitte is two innings into his three-inning session. He’s pitching to Austin Romine while Mike Harkey alternates standing in the left and right batters box. Dave Eiland is watching from behind the mound.
Two batting cages over, Joe Girardi is throwing batting practice to his son and one of his son’s friends. Two very different baseball worlds, 30 feet apart.
