Monday brings Pettitte's first test in Minors
ST. PETERSBURG -- Andy Pettitte will make the first start of his comeback attempt on Monday for the Class A Advanced Tampa Yankees, manager Joe Girardi said.

Pettitte, 39, will pitch in a Florida State League game against the Clearwater Threshers in Clearwater, Fla., a contest scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET.

The left-hander signed a Minor League contract worth $2.5 million on March 16 and could be ready to pitch at the Major League level in May. He pitched one scoreless inning for New York this spring.
