Pettitte Has Stiff Back

The plan was to have CC Sabathia, Hiroki Kuroda, and Andy Pettitte throw on regular rest, hence the reason for skipping both Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes. But that plan isn't going to happen quite as the team thought, as Andy Pettitte has felt some back stiffness. He felt it after his start on Tuesday, and felt it again last night. So Phil Hughes is going to start tomorrow's game, while Hiro will do the honors on Sunday, and Sabathia on Tuesday.

After the Yankees off day on Monday, Andy is set to start against the Diamondbacks on Tuesday. Of course, depending on how things go things could change.

Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
