Considering what has gone down across the first six weeks of the Yankees season, it’s not wise to believe injuries to Andy Pettitte and Chris Stewart aren’t going to cause problems.

Last night’s battery against the Mariners at Yankee Stadium left before Robinson Cano made the final out with Brett Gardner on third of a 3-2 loss that was witnessed by an announced crowd of 35,392.

Pettitte told manager Joe Girardi and the trainers that his upper back was tight in the fourth inning. With two outs in the fifth and his velocity falling, Girardi went to the mound and removed Pettitte.
