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.”
