ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte is scheduled to make his next minor league rehab appearance Tuesday night in the first game of Double-A Trenton’s Eastern League championship series against the Altoona Curve.

Pettitte has been on the 15-day DL since mid-July with a strained left groin. Yankees manager Joe Girardi had said last week Pettitte would make one more rehab start before rejoining the big league rotation.

He is 11-2 with a 2.88 ERA in 18 starts this season for New York.

The 38-year-old Pettitte pitched four shutout innings in a rehab start Thursday for the Thunder in a playoff game against New Hampshire, striking out four.

Rudy Owens will start Tuesday against Pettitte for Altoona, the Double-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
