Yankees Notes: A-Rod, Pettitte, Swisher, Johnson, Marte

Here are some bits for the day:

The Yankees are starting to feel the absence of Pettitte and it hurts. Remember though, he had injury concerns going into October last season with a shoulder problem and he dealt with that fine. Getting Aceves back will be huge and I don’t think anybody really thought Johnson is coming back so no loss there. Joe Girardi has to figure out a way to keep winning and get everyone past these minor injuries if the Yankees are going to make the playoffs and do well in October.
