Petttitte's Back Gets Scratched

"Oh, my back just locked"

The oldest starting pitcher in Major League Baseball is apparently feeling it. The Yankees announced that Andy Pettitte will be scratched from Sunday's start due to back spasms.

Phil Hughes is likely to get the start after his start was skipped due to a rainout and Cleveland and the desire to keep CC Sabathia on his regular rest. (With the rainy, cold weather in New York City on Friday, the Yankees should have pushed Sabathia back and day and let Hughes pitch tonight. Then Hiroki Kuroda could have gone on Sunday.)

Pettitte's been outstanding thus far with wins over Boston and Cleveland. He's thrown 15 innings with just three earned runs allowed and less hits than innings pitched.
