Pettitte: It’s a great day

Andy Pettitte came through his bullpen session this afternoon without any major issues and said he it was “a great day” for him as he recovers from a groin injury.

“I’m going to come in tomorrow and see how it feels,” Pettitte said. “I was a little tender after my last time and obviously I did more this time. I hope I just have a little bit of soreness. I imagine I will.”

Pettitte had initially suggested that he could be back about a week-and-a-half from now and he said he’s not sure how today’s bullpen would affect that estimate. Pettitte threw 30 pitches, sat down for about five or six minutes, then threw “a good hard simulated inning,” he said.

Although Pettitte’s schedule is still to be determined, he expects to face hitters in a simulated game before making at least one minor league rehab start. “It’s just a matter of where,” he said.

The best part of today for Pettitte was that he was able to focus on the location of his pitches, instead of feeling for any pain every time he threw the ball. “I’m a long way from the command that I need,” he said, “but this is a good start.”
