Rain may delay Pettitte's return


Andy Pettitte’s return to the mound may have to wait.

Tuesday’s weather forecast calls for thunderstorms and strong winds in the Bronx.

It isn’t expected to stop raining until 7 a.m. Wednesday, according to weather.com.

Pettitte is slated to start for the first time since fracturing his ankle on June 27 against the Indians. The veteran will be on a pitch count of about 70, manager Joe Girardi said.

Ricky Romero, who will oppose Pettitte for the Blue Jays, is 0-13 with a 7.91 ERA in his last 14 starts.
