Pettitte planning to pitch tomorrow

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 03, 2012 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Although Andy Pettitte said today that he’s planning to pitch in tomorrow’s big league game, Joe Girardi said that’s not set in stone. He expects Pettitte to pitch an inning tomorrow, but he wasn’t to actually see Pettitte face-to-face before making that decision final.

“I want to look him eye-to-eye and make sure he’s where he’s supposed to be and see how he feels,” Girardi said.

Here’s this afternoon’s Associated Press report from Tampa that quotes Pettitte saying he’ll pitch tomorrow.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte will see game action for the first time since ending his brief retirement when he pitches against the New York Mets in Wednesday’s spring training finale.

Pettitte is set to go one inning at Steinbrenner Field. The left-hander called it a big step in his return after his workout Tuesday.

Pettitte ended a one-season retirement by agreeing to a minor league contract on March 16. He could be ready to join the Yankees in May.

Pettitte threw his second simulated game Saturday, and talked on the phone with pitching coach Larry Rothschild following a 25-pitch bullpen session Monday.

“I bounced back pretty good after that last one, so we feel like an inning would be good tomorrow,” Pettitte said. “I realized I feel good enough to pitch.”

Rothschild is with the team on a four-game road trip to Florida’s east coast.

If his comeback is successful and he’s added to the major league roster, Pettitte would get a $2.5 million, one-year contract.

Pettitte last played in 2010, when he went 11-3 and was an All-Star. He is 240-138 lifetime with the Yankees and Houston.

For many years, Pettitte was among the Yankees’ most dependable pitchers. He is 19-10 with a 3.83 ERA in 42 career postseason starts.

    Andy.

    Take it slow.

    There’s no rush right now.

    Be smart. Stay healthy.

    Unfortunately it turned out to be a rather inauspicious start and a day that lives in infamy.

    Like Pearl Harbor. Lot’s of bombs by the enemy against an unprepared defender. A damn not so sneak, sneak attack.

    Poor Chase. PTBSD victim I’d imagine.

    First month of the season we’re ok with CC, Kuroda, Hughsie, and Garcia. Nova hopefully will carry his own weight and hold the fort, but lots of reinforcements there: Mitchell, Warren, Phelps, Pettitte and Pineda. And frankly, no one should be surprised if Garcia is traded somewhere around mid-late May, maybe early June.

    With the current balance and playoff sequence, teams aren’t going to want to fall behind very far. It’s take a lead and hold it, otherwise…

    The Yankees are so overstocked with pitching talent there is really no reason to be concerned about Nova one bit.

    He wasn’t a fluke last year and will pitch well this year.

    CC hasn’t exactly been great this spring either and we all know he’ll win 19+ games if he stays healthy.

    It’s a long season and every starter gets rocked sometimes, it’s been like that for well over 100 years.

    Nova knows more than anyone else he was awful today, I’m guessing he works it all out shortly.

    And if he doesn’t it isn’t like the replacement guy is being brought up from ‘A’ ball and who has never pitched in the bigs before…

    I feel badly for Maine, though. Cloudy day up there, far out ib the country and too far to pump electricity in. Nobody to talk baseball to except Bullwinkle. Even Fealess Leader refuses to invade Maine.

    The Yankees are so overstocked with pitching talent there is really no reason to be concerned about Nova one bit.

    He wasn’t a fluke last year and will pitch well this year.

    CC hasn’t exactly been great this spring either and we all know he’ll win 19+ games if he stays healthy.

    Well CC has quite a track record of being awesome in the majors, which Nova lacks, not to mention he most likely has a history of being awful in spring and then not carrying it over into the regular season, where Nova does not.

    Nova does have a history of command and control problems which resulted in him taking a long walkabout the minor leagues including a rule 5 drafting where the team that is currently depending on him did not even believe in him enough to spare a 40 man spot held by some terrible AA infielder.

    So they aren’t really similar and we can’t say with any certainty that Nova will be just fine. He isn’t a finished product, and the troubles he is having this spring are stemming directly from the same kind of things that made him a not very good prospect to begin with. So of course there is reason to be concerned, but perhaps you meant there is no reason to not be blindly optimistic for Nova this season because it won’t change anything.

    CC. 17.5
    Kuroda 12.5
    Nova. 12.5

    I like tbe first two overs, not so sure about Nova. Though if he bombs he might not get up to the minimim 25 starts, so it could be a No Action bet.

    Both he and the Yankees say it’s not an issue, but, as we’ve seen, ball players aren’t the most honest of people. No excuses being made, but, makes you at least wonder.

    Hello everyone,

    I gather that Nova didn’t have a good day at the mound today. I understand JF argument, but I tend to agree with MG. I think that Nova will bounce back and be good. I do understand where JF is coming from and his argument has merit, but I would oppose that he has shown a make up off the charts. He has the bulldog mentality that you want in a pitcher on the mound, last year he rose to the occasion time and time again. I wouldn’t worry for now.

    Great news about Andy, I wont be able to see him so I would appreciate some thoughts about him. Velocity and command being the items I would be most interested about.

  30. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    Sounds like Bailey better go get some Irish cream.

    It’s gonna be a while.

    hopefully no tommy john for nova

  32. CountryClub April 3rd, 2012 at 6:23 pm

    Loss of velocity is usually shoulder related.

    Loss of control is usually elbow related.

    It’s reasonable to let the thought cross our mind when it comes to Nova. But at this point it’s not really worth worrying about.

  39. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    Luis-

    Some folks are surmising that Nova is having a continuation of last year’s forearm issue because his control has been off, and he has been pitching high in zone.

    They see that as a possible cause.

    OTOH. It might be nothing.

    Let’s hope so.

  40. kd April 3rd, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    luis,

    he hurt his forearm in has last start during the playoffs

  41. luis April 3rd, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Thanks MTU and kd,

    I forgot about it….I thought it was a none issue…forearm means elbow right? That would explain him being up in the zone. Still, his two previous starts were relatively good. The one in the minors complex, he might have gotten tired so he started to live the ball up. The one before that one he struggle a little bit at the start, but he then kept the ball down. I hope there is nothing to worry about that.

  42. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 6:35 pm

    There sure are a lot of miles and miles of miles down under (or KM’s).

    I kinda like that.

    Especially after I’d had a few which I did quite frequently.

  43. luis April 3rd, 2012 at 6:36 pm

    And if it is the elbow, why don’t they take an MRI to clear things up?

    GB7 and MTU,

    I go to ski to BC in Canada, there a lot of Australians working and living up there. they celebrate their country’s day in a very noisy and out of the ordinary way. Some go to ski butt naked, and they drink from morning until their bodies can’t take any more Booz. Usually they take the very next day to recover. They sure know how to party.

  48. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    I think Ivan was checked after last season’s episode.

    I believe no structural damage was found. Rest was the prescribed cure.

    Let’s just cross that elbow when we get to it. Shall we ?

    Go to the beach. I want a full report on my desk by morning.

  52. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    Actually, according to my Funk and Wagnalls, the word “party” is taken from the Aboriginal word P-ah-tee.

    Which losely translated means “wander the outback, dig up roots, and drink like your life depended on it. Pass on the knowledge to the white Man.”

  53. m April 3rd, 2012 at 6:46 pm

    I doubt Nova has a dead arm. His velocity seems fine.

    If Pineda hadn’t presented with tendinitis, Nova might have been sent down. Nova looks better then his ERA, but his game logs don’t look much better.

    M,

    Do you believe his issues are elbow related or is he mechanically out of whack? I tend to believe the second because he has been able to pitch well in certain stretches.

  62. m April 3rd, 2012 at 6:55 pm

    Is Aaron Cook the retread you’re talking about? I know he’s making some rehab appearances and might be close, though not ready for owning day.

  68. m April 3rd, 2012 at 7:03 pm

    Luis,

    Probably mechanics. If he’s leaving the ball up, his shoulder is probably too open?

    But he’s made in game adjustments with that problem. So we’ll see what happens under the bright lights.

    I’m not worried, but he’s gonna have to pitch better. There are too many options to go to.

  69. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    The Sux do not have deep depth like the Yankees which is so unfortunate.

    Tragic really.

    My heart goes out to them.

    Not.

  70. luis April 3rd, 2012 at 7:04 pm

    Seriously, on Trisha’s chart a place them with 85 to 87 wins, I don’t remember exactly,but with that number of wins I don’t think they make the cut either. Granted, I put those numbers with a clear bias, but Melancon the closer? Bard as a starter?….Must say that I was impressed with Dubront though.

  71. Nick in SF April 3rd, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    My candidate would be Phelps or Mitchell since i think either one of them Is going to be the long man.

  77. m April 3rd, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    I have not put a tie breaker guess in to trisha yet. I just don’t know what to think of that team.

    When they’re injured they do well. When things are in place they fall apart.

    I see them in the mid-80′s, just with Beckett, Lester alone making 60 starts.

    But that bullpen might cost them a chunk of games. Hopefully their road woes re-emerge.

    I think Melancon is a candidate for Sox closer. Aceves as well.

    Remember when Melancon was considered the heir apparent? That was definitely one of those cases of prospect hyping.

    It’s a tough assignment so good for him if they do decide to give him the ball in those situations. Its certainly a career advancing opportunity.

    The question is does Dwight want the Lakers?

  81. luis April 3rd, 2012 at 7:20 pm

    M,

    I don’t think Beckett makes 30 starts this season. Too many injury concerns and if past history means anything, this is his subpar year. Too many question marks in their back of the rotation, even though I think Dubront might be a surprise. Then they have Bucholtz own barking back. Then there is their BP. I never count them out, but I think one WC will come from the West, the other one from the East. The Rays have superior pitching and the Jays have themselves a very good team as well.

  82. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2012 at 7:21 pm

    Aaron Cook was sent to AAA. He should be used to Fenway. He pitched his career in Arizona. Whiplash is nothing new for him.

    you mean the guy the Celtics were desperately trying to trade all off-season?

    “I don’t think Beckett makes 30 starts this season.”

    ———-

    he’s due to miss at least a month when he breaks his hand punching or attempting to punch his manager the first time said manager throws him under the bus.

    Actually Aaron Cook is a really good guy.

    He nearly died from Lung embolisms.

    Made it all the way back.

    Way too nice to be Pitching for the Sux.

    Padilla is a Sux type Pitcher.

    ;)

    Not even Dwight knows what he wants!

    We get to go thru this drama again next season because he signed away his opt-out.

    LMAO! or asks him to go to a AA meeting with his buddies after a game where he didn’t pitch ;)

    I think TB edges out BOS for one of the WC slots this year. TB SP will keep them in most of their games and I expect a big year out of Longoria and they have Jennings for the full season. For my money, Madden is the best manager in the game, so he is an asset in a tight race.

    Too many questions for BOS with very little in the way of depth. I put them down for 91 wins but that’s if most of the balls bounce their way.

    IMO the Angels will take the West leaving TEX as the other WC.

    This is the year Robinson Cano takes the AL MVP.

    I don’t know anything about Cook, but on Padilla you are spot on

    I saw Mitchell but not Phelps today. Mitchell was not getting too many ground balls. Phelps stat line looks good. How did he look today?

  93. GreenBeret7 April 3rd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    Even as average as he is, you have to wonder how Alfredo Simon ever got past Boston on the waiver wires.

  94. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    I hope Beckett treats Bobby V like Clint Eastwood treated that dog in “Unforgiven”.

    Now that would be hysterical.

    :)

  95. MTU April 3rd, 2012 at 7:33 pm

    Luis-

    Yeah. Ugly, slimy, and mean.

    A perfect fit.

    The way valentine has the need to control everything himself, he may drive the bus and run over Beckett.

    What are they singing in that Heineken commercial, called Serenade?
    Sounds japanese…maybe Nick knows.

  98. blake April 3rd, 2012 at 7:35 pm

    I really don’t see how the the Sox can avoid putting Bard back in the bullpen at this point…..if they leave him in the rotation then they are risking losing a lot of games that their good starters pitch because of a weak pen…..they said on the radio that Valentine was leaning towards closing Aceves? Still hilarious that they traded Scutero to sign a starting pitcher and then forgot to……..

    ================

    I don’t know if he wins the MVP, but on yesterday’s game he showed incredible plate discipline that I honestly didn’t see last year. Maybe it is in deed his year.

    There’s a new thread in town —–>

    Mick, is it a new commercial? The one they’ve been winning with the white guy and Chinese girl is called The Date”. The music was cut from an old bollywood song from the 60′s. Great tune.

    I’m not sure they were trying as hard as the media made it sound.

    Hey kids. I’m going to post the Charts. You have the right to make changes to either, especially in light of Pineda and also the Suxer’s sad misfortune.

    :)

    1. Everyone has until Opening Day to either sign up or give changes.

    2. To be considered for the outstanding prize of 12 Ritter Sports Bars, (flavors of your choice), you have to give me predictions for both charts.

    I’ll post the relevant chart in this post and then the secondary (or tertiary, or in reality – fourth in line – don’t know the “ary” term) chart in the next.

    “Instead of just finishing 3rd they might have to settle for 4th now.

    Heartbreaking.

    :(

    :D

    I believe I said 4th place from jump street.

    Thank you, thank you. Just call me, well, lets see. How ’bout perspicacious? Yeah, that’s the ticket!
