Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte exited
Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Indians with a left ankle fracture.
The team said he's expected to miss at least six weeks. He will be placed on
crutches and into a boot.
The news comes just hours after CC Sabathia was placed on the 15-day disabled
Casey Kotchman led off the top of the fifth with a one-hopper that hit off
Pettitte's left ankle.
The training staff and manager Joe Girardi rushed to the mound to check on the
status of Pettitte, who was showing signs of pain. The veteran pitcher made
one pitch to the next batter, but Girardi decided to take him out of the game.
