Andy Pettitte threw his sim game today in Tampa, but he felt like he was only able to push off 75 percent.

“He probably needs a little more rest, that’s all,” Joe Girardi said.

Pettitte was able to throw the full 50-pitch session, but he was not 100 percent. He will not begin a rehab assignment as early as expected. He will instead throw another simulated game before possibly pitching in a game. Girardi indicated it’s possible Pettitte will need only one more sim game before rehabbing.
