Rehab recap: Pettitte, A-Rod, Aardsma, and Feliciano

The Yankees have quite a few injured players right now and it is really affecting the way the team has played, but luckily they are expecting a few back soon.

Andy Pettitte, broken ankle, threw from a mound for the first time yesterday. Meredith Marakovits reported that he threw 20 pitches and said his ankle felt fine. He will see a doctor today to make sure everything checks out before proceeding with the next step.

Alex Rodriguez, broken hand, played in his first rehab game down in Tampa. He went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts and a walk as the DH. Previous reports said he was expected to play third base today as long as he felt fine this morning.

David Aardsma, Tommy John and hip surgery, made his first rehab start since his setback in June. He also played for High-A Tampa. He threw one scoreless innings with one walk and one wild pitch. To be expected after such a long layoff.

Finally, Pedro Feliciano, shoulder surgery, made another rehab appearance with the Short Season-A Staten Island Yankees. He pitched one inning and allowed a homer. It was his eighth rehab appearance and it seems very likely that he will join the Yankees any day now.
