Pettitte Scratched, Throws Today

Regardless of what was initially expected, Andy Pettitte threw catch again today for the second straight day. Though Pettitte has been scratched from pitching the second game of the season, it's possible he will instead pitch the third or fourth game, with Mike Mussina and/or Phil Hughes moving up in the rotation. Pettitte through 42 tosses and believes his back is much better than it was just a day ago, though he still feels slight tightness. The lefty threw harder than his previous catch and said "it's progressing."
