Interesting stuff from Mark Feinsand this morning.
Mark is reporting that Andy Pettitte felt some back stiffness during his previous start in New York. There doesn’t seem to be extreme concern about it, but given the state of the Yankees rotation, it obviously adds a little weight to Friday’s start in Boston.
“The next day, I knew I was going to be fine,” Pettitte told the Daily News. “But you don’t want to have anything going on, especially after what I’ve been through with my groin.”
