News & Notes

- Here are a few quotes from Andy Pettitte via Brian Heyman about his recent setback:

“To say, I’m frustrated, that’s an understatement,” Pettitte said. “In Tampa (at the end of July), I talked to you all and I thought I was a week ahead of schedule maybe. … It’s just not allowing me to push when I want to go real, real hard, and I’m getting some irritation in there.

“I know how I was feeling, and I was feeling great. I think maybe I combined my bullpen work with my running and getting back into my weightlifting and maybe I pushed it too hard and got the thing aggravated a little bit.

“I’ve got to back off a little bit and focus on my mound work and that’s it. I’m sure age has a lot to do with it. I’ve got a lot of wear and tear on my body since 10 years ago, 9 years ago, the last time I did this.”

- The Yankees have lost four of six to the Tigers this year.
