- Nick Swisher is sitting because of "heat-related cramps."
- Here's an update on Andy Pettitte's sim game via Chad Jennings:
Andy Pettitte threw his sim game today in Tampa, but he felt like he was only able to push off 75 percent.- The Yankees have won four of the five games against the Royals this year.
“He probably needs a little more rest, that’s all,” Joe Girardi said.
“I definitely think he thinks it’s a setback,” Joe Girardi said. “… He just doesn’t feel like it is completely healed. He just doesn’t feel that it’s at full strength.”
- AL EAST STANDINGS:
- Tampa is playing in Baltimore tonight, with James Shields going against Jeremy Guthrie. The O's are 8-2 since Buck Showalter was hired.
- Boston is in Texas, with Josh Beckett facing Tommy Hunter.
- Jose Guillen is not Bronx bound, instead, he was traded today to the Giants.
