Morning Bits: Phelps, Rodriguez, Pettitte
Good morning everyone. Last night the Yankees saw their lead shrink to just 2 games after they looked lost against Miguel Gonzalez. They face Wei-Yin Chen today and Phelps takes the mound for the Yankees. Here are the morning links.
– With Wei-Yin Chen on the mound for the Orioles the main question is, can David Phelps beat him?
– Alex Rodriguez played a rehab game with the Class-A Yankees yesterday and he went 0 for 3 with a walk.
– Andy Pettitte pitched off of a mound yesterday and threw 2o pitches. Joe Girardi’s next step is for Pettitte to do a full bullpen session with 35-40 pitches– the same kind of bullpen session Pettitte would do between starts.
