From The LoHud Yankees Blog:

Andy Pettitte is having his next start skipped, and he’s not happy about it.

“I’m not very happy at all,” he said. “I would have loved to have been able to throw, to come in and play catch or something, and see how I feel.”

Instead, Pettitte found out today that he’ll be skipping his next start as a precaution because of some stiffness he felt around his elbow on Wednesday. Pettitte said it’s gone away completely, which leaves him frustrated that he won’t be pitching on turn, but he also said he understands why Joe Girardi and Dave Eiland made their decision.

“It’s the best thing for him, and in turn, it’s the best thing for us,” Eiland said. “If he wasn’t mad, I’d be a little bit concerned.”

Other key injury updates:

Jorge Posada
Took early batting practice only from the right side, but said he’ll hit both left and right during regular BP. He expects to play tomorrow. Girardi said he was hesitant to give him a start tonight, but he considers Posada to be an available pinch hitter.

Mariano Rivera
The Yankees closer is available out of the bullpen.

and if you care about Chan Ho Park:

Chan Ho Park
Threw a 45-pitch bullpen session today. He’ll throw another  on Sunday.

Sergio Mire is going to make Pettitte’s next scheduled start (Monday) in Detroit, which was the game Javier Vazquez was supposed to pitch. Javy will now be pushed back a day and pitch on Tuesday.  Mitre and Vazquez on back-to-back days? Yikes! Let’s hope for the best.

Rumulo Sanchez got the call from the minor leagues to take Mitre’s spot in the bullpen. Grego Golson was demoted to Scranton in order to make room for Sanchez.
