Pettitte, 39, will pitch in a Florida State League game against the Phillies Class A team the Clearwater Threshers. Game time is at 7 p.m. EST.
Pettitte is pleased with his progress and is looking forward to pitching tomorrow night.
“I’m feeling great.” Pettitte said. “So far, so good.”
On Wednesday, Pettitte threw a scoreless sixth inning in the Grapefruit League finale against the cross-town rivials, the New York Mets. It was his first time pitching in a Major League game since the 2010 postseason.
Barring any setbacks, Pettitte is on pace to return to the Yankees sometime in May.

CC Sabathia’s appearance at a Harlem Globetrotters game could have been some foreshadowing for his disappointing opening day start.
During a break in their preseason schedule, New York Yankees CC Sabathia, Curtis Granderson, and Nick Swisher participated in a Harlem Globetrotter’s showcase. CC struggled with this version of baseball, as one of the Globetrotters launched...

Do you think the New York Yankees are in trouble?
Well, the Yankees are off to a horrid start to the 2012 season, as they got out pitched, out hit and out managed by the Tampa Bay Rays who swept the Bombers right out of Tropicana Field this past weekend.

The Rays have won five straight at home against the Yankees for the first time heading into Sunday's finale of this opening series. New York has gotten poor...

Early issues were too much to overcome...
HOUSTON- Nameplates are often last on the checklist in the frenzy of player transactions, thus while Justin Maxwell was sufficiently outfitted for his Astros debut and announced his arrival with a two-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning on Monday night at Minute Maid Park, the space next to the No. 22 above his locker remained blank afterward.
