Andy Pettitte to return from disabled list Monday

3 Comments

Andy Pettitte has been cleared to return from the disabled list and the Yankees announced that he’ll start Monday against the Indians.

Pettitte has been out for the past two weeks with a strained trapezius muscle, but reported no problems following a 75-pitch simulated game this week.

Prior to the injury he had a 3.83 ERA and 39/15 K/BB ratio in 49 innings, which is damn good for a 40-year-old even if it falls short of Pettitte’s excellent numbers last season after coming out of retirement.
