Dave Robertson and Boone Logan are scheduled to face hitters this morning, but today’s batting practice to watch might be thrown by a guy not on the roster. If Andy Pettitte does get to throw to some hitters today, you can bet there will be plenty of people paying attention. It’ll be nothing but BP fastballs over the middle of the plate, but still… It will be Pettitte, in uniform, on a mound.
“I know he’s thrown a lot to his son, so he shouldn’t get worn out,” Joe Girardi said. “We’ll find out though.”
Derek Jeter laughed at the idea yesterday, but Pettitte seemed to like it. How would Pettitte feel throwing BP to his former shortstop?
“I don’t know, we’ll see,” Pettitte said. “I won’t hit him.”
