Cashman told me the plan is to have Pettitte return during the CLE series (as long as there are no setbacks) #yankees

Via my girl Meredith earlier today, Brian Cashman confirmed that Andy Pettitte will indeed come off the DL next week and rejoin the rotation during the team's Monday-Wednesday series against Cleveland. Vidal Nuno is scheduled to pitch the Subway Series finale tomorrow, and is currently occupying Pettitte's spot in the rotation. He'll more than likely be sent down Triple-A to stay stretched out as a starter when his spot comes around again next Tuesday and Andy will get that start.
Pettitte had no problems in his 75-pitch sim game yesterday and I imagine he will throw one more simulated session of some kind before returning. It will be interesting to see how Joe manages his workload now that he's coming back from his second back problem of the year. The important thing is that the Left-Handed Jedi has returned. Now somebody hit the music!
