A-Rod, Pettitte OK'd to continue rehab progression
NEW YORK -- The Yankees received good news prior to their 8-7 loss to the Blue Jays on Monday, when X-rays on Alex Rodriguez and Andy Pettitte revealed both are healing well from injuries, allowing them to continue their rehab Tuesday.

Rodriguez, who fractured his left hand July 24, will take batting practice at Yankee Stadium, and Pettitte, who has a fractured left ankle, will throw from flat ground.

If Pettitte's throwing goes well, manager Joe Girardi said the next step could be throwing from the mound in a bullpen session. Pettitte recently said he believed he would need to be on a mound around Sept. 1 in order to return this season.

Rodriguez appears on track to return as scheduled, as his original diagnosis said he would miss four to six weeks.
