Pettitte Leaves With Leg Injury

Andy Pettitte left Wednesday’s game with a leg injury.

Andy Pettitte left Wednesday’s game in the 5th inning after taking a line drive off the bat of Casey Kotchman to the left ankle. Pettitte went down instantly, though managed to convince Joe Girardi and the training staff to let him remain in the game. After a few warm-up pitches, Pettitte threw just one pitch to the next batter before being removed. He did appear to be limping as he left the field.

Pettitte was replaced by Cody Eppley. There has been no word yet on how severe the injury is.
