Day after return to mound, Pettitte feeling good
NEW YORK -- Andy Pettitte reported no physical issues on Thursday, one day after the Yankees' veteran left-hander returned with five scoreless innings against the Blue Jays.

"I feel good; just good soreness in all the right spots," Pettitte said. "I was able to do my work and will probably try to run a little bit [Friday]. I did my work on the bike today, so it's good. It feels good."

Pettitte said that his return to big league duty after an 84-day layoff with a fractured left ankle presented no major issues, though he felt his legs fatigue quicker than expected.

He scattered four hits in a 75-pitch outing, his first start since June 27. Pettitte is slated to pitch on Monday against the Twins at Target Field.

"I would love to say I hope I can get to 85 or 90 [pitches]," Pettitte said. "I think that's a possibility, but we've got to see how the game goes."
