Andy Pettitte Injury: Yankees Pitcher Has Bruised Hand, X-Rays Negative

New York Yankees starting pitcher Andy Pettitte has a bruised right hand after fielding a batted ball with a bare hand in the sixth inning of Sunday's game against the New York Mets in the teams' Subway Series. X-rays on the hand following his outing reportedly came back negative. Pettitte intends to make his next start (via River Ave Blues).

Pettitte stopped Scott Hairston's one-hopper back to the mound with his bare hand and threw Hairston out. After a conference on the mound, Pettitte stayed in the game and struck out Lucas Duda and got Vinny Rottino to fly out before leaving the game.

Pettitte did not receive a decision in the Yankees' 5-4 win over the Mets. In his six innings, Pettitte gave up five hits, three runs (two earned) with eight strikeouts and two walks. He is 3-2 on the season with a 2.81 ERA.
