New York placed left-handed pitcher Andy Pettitte on the DL with a strained left trapezius on Friday evening ahead of the Yankees’ series-opening game against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.
This isn’t Pettitte’s first strain in recent years, and the Yankees have to hope that he will rebound from this one much faster than he did from the groin strain that kept him out of action for two months in 2010.
Girardi said the Yankees are “going to go through this probably a little bit” with the 40-year-old starter.
On a night of injuries, the Seattle Mariners patched together just enough pitching to win.
Vernon Wells hit a go-ahead two-run homer and made a long running catch to preserve a 3-2 victory for Andy Pettitte and the New York Yankees
Andy Pettitte surrendered two home runs as the Yankees lost 5-4 on Sunday.
Carlos Corporan homered among his four hits and drove in four runs, Brandon Barnes three hits and three RBIs, and the Houston Astros fit comfortably into the role of a slugging AL squad Monday night in a 9-1 romp over the Yankees.
Alex Cobb scattered three hits over 8 1-3 innings, Ben Zobrist drove in two runs and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the New York Yankees 3-0 on Wednesday night.
Andy Pettitte pitched effectively into the eighth inning, Travis Hafner homered and had two RBIs, and the New York Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 9-4 on Friday night.
“We’ll see if this is my time,” Sabathia said. “It’s reality. You never know. I’ve never been through anything like this, so I don’t know. I’m not going to lose sleep over it. I’ve been pitching for a long time. Eventually, it was going to happen.”
Andy Pettitte is expected to make his next start Friday at Toronto after his turn in the rotation was pushed back.
So watching the Yankees the last few days I was suddenly reminded of the movie “Major League.” That happens nearly every time I’m in Cleveland — I mean, why wouldn’t it? — but this time it happened for another reason.
Robinson Cano hit one of New York’s five homers and drove in five runs, Andy Pettitte pitched seven solid innings and the Yankees romped to a 14-1 win Tuesday night over the Cleveland Indians.
Following two straight duds to start the season, the banged-up New York Yankees finally looked like themselves Thursday night.
They are still the Yankees, so expectations are high. But those expectations will quickly dissolve into disaster. Baseball in the Bronx will be memorable this year, but for all the wrong reasons.
