Pettitte to throw tomorrow

Despite being allowed to report on Monday, Andy Pettitte will throw a bullpen session tomorrow in Houston, according to Ronald Blum.

Here are some Yankees' reactions on the Pettitte situation:

"I think to be a little bit concerned is natural, but my instinct is that he will handle it well," Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said.

"As soon as he gets on the baseball field, I think he's able to forget it real quick and concentrate on baseball," catcher Jorge Posada said. "We've got a lot of guys here that are going to support him and give him everything, all the support that he needs."

"He's doing good. Obviously, he's been through a pretty traumatic offseason," [Joe] Girardi said. "You'll take his temperature to see where he's at, but I expect Andy to be Andy and ready to go and to come out and do his work and be prepared when the season starts. I don't have any reason to think he won't be prepared March 31."

Good to see that Pettitte is trying to prepare. The Yankees have been concerned about Pettitte since he was named in the Mitchell Report, so this shows that Pettitte is still committed.
