Andy Pettitte To Pitch One Inning Wednesday Vs. New York Mets

The New York Yankees’ ho-hum Spring Training finale on Wednesday against the New York Mets now has some intrigue. The recently un-retired Andy Pettitte is scheduled to pitch one inning on Wednesday, his first game action since announcing his return.

Pettitte’s return to the Yankees after a year away from the game is one of the most intriguing stories of the 2012 MLB season. What does the 39-year-old left-hander have left in the tank, and how quickly can he get ready to rejoin the Yankees after deciding to return once Spring Training had already begun?

Pettitte has 240 career victories, 203 of those with the Yankees. In his last season, 2010, he went 11-3 with a 3.28 ERA and made the American League All-Star Team. Pettitte will turn 40 this summer.

The Yankees have a crowded rotation, but will undoubtedly make room for Pettitte once the left-hander is ready to pitch at the big-league level again.
