Pettitte to rehab in Trenton on Wednesday

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Sep 06, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Joe Girardi just announced that Andy Pettitte will make a rehab start with Double-A Trenton on Wednesday. That’s assuming his bullpen goes as expected this morning.

Girardi said he expects Pettitte to make two rehab starts before rejoining the active roster, but it’s possible Pettitte will need just one.

    Welcome back, Colin Curtis!

    And, boy, do I wish I could get to the Trenton game Wednesday night!!!!! Sigh.

    Good news about Andy Pettitte. The Yankees really need him back in the rotation.

    Doreen,
    That would be a great game to go to. Imagine the Trenton players having Andy pitch a playoff game for them!

    SJ-

    Why is it that scouts rated Casey Kelly so highly? Based on reports on him, he sounds very similar to Ian Kennedy, who got limited scouting love.

    JS – some of it might have to do with that Boston’s front office and player development talks to Baseball America’s writing staff and has a good rapport – it is a you scratch my back I scratch your back by helping raise the profile of your farm system. The Yankees do not adhere to that policy – especially Damon Oppenheimer and his staff in charge of the U.S. domestic amateur draft. If you read Oppenheimer’s comments after he took Cito Culver this past year, they were quite revealing regarding his thoughts on BA.

    I’m glad they brought back Curtis. While you can’t go by the short stint he had up already, it seems he fit in pretty well.

    Giving some depth to the outfield allows the luxury of having Swisher and Kearns rest up a bit and get healthy.

    Looking forward to Andy rejoining the rotation. Hopefully that will not be much longer.

    Essentially – Baseball America will almost write whatever the Boston front office wants them to say about their prospects b/c they have such access to their scouts and have networked and schmoozed with them. It is like working with a client.

    Wednesday’s Trenton game is a Double-A playoff game. How is it that Andy can pitch?

    YanksGal,

    Have a great time at the game on the gorgeous day. As always, I hold our LoHudders who are fortunate enough to go to the game responsible for the win. I expect great things and have fun.

    This is not the proper thread to welcome Colin Curtis.
