From the Yankees Official Website:

NEW YORK — Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte was forced to leave his start against the Orioles on Wednesday with what an MRI examination revealed to be mild inflammation of his pitching elbow.

The Yankees said that Pettitte will be treated conservatively and evaluated on a daily basis. Pettitte completed just five innings against Baltimore, hurling 77 pitches, before exiting with a lead and complaining of stiffness in his elbow area. He picked up his fourth victory in the Bombers’ 7-5 win.

Pettitte was evaluated at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and, before the results were announced, offered a statement to Yankees director of media relations Jason Zillo.

“First and foremost, it’s frustrating,” Pettitte said. “You know how much pride I take in going deep into ballgames. Anytime you’re talking about the area around the elbow, you start to worry a little bit. I think it’s going to be fine, but I’ll know a lot more after the MRI results come back.”

MRI’s always give you a cause for concern, but when I heard that Andy wanted to stay in the game, I wasn’t that worried about it. It was definitely a good sign. I’m just glad it’s nothing serious. He’ll be evailuated on a daily basis, and hopefully he’ll be back very soon. I guess it’s possible he makes his next start, but this is what Cashman had to say before the MRI results came in:

“My feeling is Andy will at least miss a start, just because,” Cashman told ESPNNewYork.com’s Ian O’Connor prior to receiving the test results.
