Andy Pettitte will return to the rotation Tuesday at the Stadium and pitch against the Blue Jays. The left-hander, whose left ankle was fractured by a line drive June 27, will likely be limited to around 75 pitches.

"I'm ready to pitch," he said. "I think they were worried about my health and sending me out there too early, but I think they've been pleased with my simulated games, and that's why they're willing to get me back out there.

"My leg, I believe, has healed and I feel really good. So there is no issue. I feel really comfortable right now."
