Andy Pettitte throws four scoreless innings in minors

Andy Pettitte’s first minor-league tuneup on April 9 went well and yesterday his second outing was even better, as the 39-year-old left-hander tossed four scoreless innings against high Single-A hitters.

Pettitte threw 31 of his 47 pitches for strikes, whiffing three, walking zero, and allowing just two hits while inducing seven ground balls.

He’s expected to start again later this week and at some point soon Pettitte will presumably move up to Double-A or Triple-A, although he remains unlikely to rejoin the Yankees until next month.
