A lot of little bits of info are coming through via Twitter. Here's what I've got so far:
- Andy Pettitte threw a 50-pitch simulated game to live batters. Alex Rodriguez, Ramiro Pena, and Greg Golson hits, Chad Moeller caught, and Reggie Jackson was the umpire.
- Andy showed no signs of groin trouble, his location was good and Joe Girardi said he was happy with what he saw. He will either throw another simulated game or make one rehab start.
- A-Rod picked up a few hits, also showed no signs of injury and Joe Girardi said he "looked good too".... He told the Eric Boland that "It was an encouraging day. No setbacks."
