    Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Pettitte should be ready Tuesday or Wednesday. The New York Yankees have pushed back veteran Andy Pettitte's scheduled Sunday start as he deals with back spasms. The team and the southpaw hope Pettitte will benefit from extra rest and pitch Tuesday or Wednesday against Arizona. But he felt he “was able to get the ball fairly where I wanted to,” he said, so he gutted through it and lasted seven innings, getting his second win of the season in the Yankees’ 14-1 victory. He said he felt it in the center of his back and felt a little sore the next day, but he felt great Thursday as he threw his bullpen session and went through his normal routine, including his upper-body workout.
