As I wrote in Monday's paper, Andy Pettitte is at the point of diminishing returns as far as minor-league starts go. He may as well get to the Bronx and see what happens and that's what Yankees GM Brian Cashman has decided. He announced this afternoon that Pettitte will start Sunday against Seattle in his first game in the big league since 2010.
I know many of you were hoping Pettitte would go against the Mariners either Friday or Saturday because that would have meant start No. 2 would have been May 16 or 17 in Toronto against the Blue Jays. Instead, it now appears Pettitte's second outing will be at home May 18 against the Reds and No. 3 will also be in the Bronx, May 23 against the Royals.
