Here Comes Andy Pettitte, Finally

After making a second rehab start for the Trenton Thunder last night — this one in their Eastern League Championship Series opener — the lefty proclaimed himself ready for big-league action. Finally. Said Pettitte: "Unless they tell me I'm not starting, I feel like it's time." His line against the Altoona Curve: five innings, two runs, six hits, one walk, and four strikeouts. He threw 67 pitches — 48 for strikes — before tacking on ten more in the bullpen afterward. Joe Girardi hasn't announced his rotation for this weekend's series in Baltimore yet, but Pettitte's on track to pitch Sunday afternoon. Don't expect too much, though, at least right away. Pettitte, again, via the Post: "I would imagine I would feel pretty good to go 80 pitches. Hopefully that gets me through five or six innings ... If not, it's probably going to be a struggle game for me." [NYP]
