Andy Pettitte Passes Yankees Health Inspection

Ex-Houston SP Andy Pettitte overcame Yankees GM Brian Cashman's concerns about his physical strength and durability by presenting statistics that show his recurring elbow problems are behind him. The 34-year-old lefty exacted his $16 million per annum deal from New York by showing that he went 8-4 with a 2.79 ERA after July 1, enhancing his reputation as a big-game, late-season, playoff performer.
