Wallace Matthews released the Opening Day roster yesterday afternoon. No Jeter, Rodriguez, Teixeira, Granderson or Hughes. How weird.

Andy Pettitte returned this year because he had “the itch” to pitch in the major leagues again. All was going well until he took a  liner off his left ankle during a start against the Cleveland Indians back on June 27th. He had a fractured left fibula (ankle injury), which was initially supposed to keep him out for only six weeks, but that turned into 12 weeks after a few minor setbacks and a rehab program.

Pettitte pitched the first game of a day-night  double header against the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday in his return, tossing 5 scoreless frames, allowing 4 hits, 2 walks and struck  out 3 batters. He picked up the win, pushing his W-L record to (4-3) on the season. It was almost as if he never left. Whenever they seem to need a victory in a big spot, he usually delivers.
