Sessions get Pettitte closer to game shape
CLEVELAND -- Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte threw the equivalent of two 20-pitch innings on flat ground and long-tossed at Progressive Field on Saturday as he continues to eye a September return.

Pettitte could be cleared to increase his physical activity on Monday. Yankees manager Joe Girardi said that the Yankees may have to simulate a game for Pettitte when the time comes, because the calendar is running out of Minor League games.

"I don't know if it'll be at the Minor League level," Girardi said. "We might have to make it up. We might need some hitters. Grab a bat."

Girardi added that Pettitte would need to appear in a Major League game before the club would consider carrying him on a potential postseason roster.
