Derek Jeter wasn’t the only Yankee to return to the field Wednesday night.
Andy Pettitte made his spring debut, allowing one run over three innings as the Yankees beat the Phillies, 6-2, at Steinbrenner Field. Pettitte gave up four hits and walked three, striking out three during his 58-pitch outing.
“It’s just good to get back out there and see somebody in a different uniform,” Pettitte said. “Stuff-wise, I didn’t feel great. I felt like my command wasn’t anywhere near where I wanted, but it’s good it gives you something to work on for the next time out.”
Pettitte’s next start will come at the Yankees’ minor-league complex on Monday, when the Bombers have an off-day. He’ll make two more starts after that as he tunes up for the season.
