Pettitte and Kennedy in Tampa

Andy Pettitte and Ian Kennedy both threw in a minor-league intrasquad game this afternoon, according to Peter Abraham.

Pettitte threw 77 pitches, allowing only one hit and one walk while striking out six in six innings.

Kennedy gave up four hits and one walk over five innings. He struck out five.

Pettitte seemed pleased with his day:

“I threw 77 pitches, and that’s what I needed,” Pettitte said. “It’s exactly what I wanted to do. I feel great. Everything felt good today. Got a lot of work in. Did I have to get to 77 pitches today because I’m a little short and behind everybody? Yeah. I’m ready for my start and just looking forward to continuing to build my strength up.”
This is great news. Pettitte is scheduled to start on Saturday.

This is probably all there is in terms of news today. I'll be around tomorrow to liveblog the game for those who couldn't skip work to watch Opening Day. See you all then.
