Andy Pettitte efficient in minor league start

Phil Hughes was strong on Sunday, but not efficient, maybe he needs lessons from Andy Pettitte who was scheduled to pitch two innings with High-A Tampa on Monday, but ended up tossing three innings just to get all of his work in.

“I felt good with everything,” Pettitte told Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger. “Just another good step.”

Pettitte threw 32 pitches overall and is set to throw 50 pitches in a start on Sunday.

“This was a short sample, a short outing, and feel like maybe I didn’t get a chance to throw some of the pitches that I would have liked to throw because I was getting some guys out in early counts,” Pettitte said. “But all-in-all I feel real comfortable with everything.”

    If only the person handling the minor league internet updates on this game was as efficient. He or she was pathetic.
