TRENTON, N.J. -- With his importance increasing because Michael Pineda is out for the season, Andy Pettitte moved a little closer to returning to the Yankees by pitching five innings for the Double-A Trenton Thunder on Wednesday night.


After allowing four runs -- three earned -- against the Erie SeaWolves, Pettitte is expected to make at least two more minor league starts before he could be ready for the big leagues, possibly by May 10. Pettitte is returning after sitting out all of last season.

"It was another step in the right direction," Pettitte said of Wednesday's outing.


Yankees GM Brian Cashman said it is possible that Pettitte could have three minor league starts, which would move his major league debut to the middle of next month.


The timing of his first big league outing could also be delayed by Pettitte's anticipated testimony in the Roger Clemens perjury trial.


"That is nothing I even care to talk about," Pettitte said.


Wearing his familiar No. 46, Pettitte mostly had his way with the inferior competition, despite an imperfect line. In what for all intents and purposes was a spring training start, he threw 81 pitches, 59 for strikes, and allowed seven hits. He struck out three and walked one.


"I was a little disappointed with my command a little bit tonight," Pettitte said. "I thought I made a few more mistakes than I had been making."


Pineda will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a labrum tear in his right shoulder and will be out for the rest of the season, but his injury will have no impact on when Pettitte is put into the Yankees' struggling rotation. Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes have not pitched well so far.


"Regardless of what is taking place at the major league level, Andy has got to go through the right motions," Cashman said. "There is a little unknown, given his age and being a full year off. He'll be ready when he is ready. Despite what is happening above, there is not going to be any urgency."


The Yankees have not yet decided when and where Pettitte will make his next minor league start. It will be based on logistics and weather.


"We'll see what and where will make the most sense," Cashman said.


Trenton is on the road in Portland, Maine, at the beginning of next week. Pettitte needs to be at the 100-pitch level before he and the Yankees would consider him ready for the majors.


"We've got to play it safe," Cashman said. "When and if he is ready, it is not going to be something it can sustain and stay healthy. So he is in the position to help."


Pettitte left to a standing ovation in the sixth inning. On his way to the Thunder dugout, he flipped the ball to a fan.


Before the first pitch, the crowd honored Pettitte with his initial standing ovation at the announcement of his name. In the first, Pettitte gave up a run but looked like his old self, throwing 16 pitches, including 11 strikes.


The first two batters he faced hit singles -- one a line drive to center by Michael Rockett and the other a soft grounder off third baseman Addison Maruszak's glove -- to put a runner in scoring position. Rockett would score on a fielder's choice before Pettitte sent two SeaWolves down on strikes. Pettitte retired nine in a row after the initial two hits.


In the fourth, Pettitte gave up his second run on a walk and two hits. The RBI single came on a bloop off the bat of Rob Brantly.


In the fifth, Pettitte allowed his third run but was hurt by an error in the inning. When he left the mound, the crowd thought he would be done for the game and rose for his second ovation.


When Pettitte finally was taken out for good in the sixth, there was a man on first. The runner came around to score.


"He looked good," Cashman said. "I think he is going in the right direction."


Pettitte, who will turn 40 in June, came out of retirement in mid-March. The Yankees signed him to a $2.5 million deal, which seems like even more of a steal with Pineda now out of the season.

SAN DIEGO -- Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson says an MRI on Ryan Zimmerman's right shoulder shows inflammation but no structural damage.

Zimmerman missed his third straight start on Wednesday. Johnson says the plan is to have Zimmerman take some swings on Thursday to see how he feels.

If there's no relief by Thursday, Zimmerman could be sent back to Washington for treatment.

Johnson says Zimmerman had a cortisone shot on Saturday but it's possible the shot might not have had its full effect.

CINCINNATI -- The San Francisco Giants put Aubrey Huff on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday while he received treatment for an anxiety attack.

Huff left the team in New York over the weekend after struggling at the plate and in the field. The Giants originally said he had a family emergency.

Manager Bruce Bochy said on Wednesday that Huff is getting treatment for anxiety. He could rejoin the team in San Francisco over the weekend.

"He had an episode of anxiety," Bochy said, before a game against the Cincinnati Reds. "He got some treatment, he'll continue to get treatment. At this time, we thought the best thing was to make this move and put him on the 15-day disabled list."

The Giants called up infielder Joaquin Arias from Triple-A Fresno. He was in Cincinnati in time for the second game of a series against the Reds.

Huff has started four games in left field and six at first base. Huff was moved to second base for the first time in his career on Saturday because the Giants were short-handed, and he failed to cover the base on a potential double play, helping the Mets rally for a 5-4 win.

Huff also has struggled at the plate, going 1 for 15 in his last six games.

Bochy didn't know whether Huff has dealt with anxiety issues before now. When he left the team after Saturday's game, Bochy initially thought he might be experiencing a problem related to his on-field performance.

"I thought that was a possibility, yeah I did," Bochy said. "I didn't have a chance to talk to him, but we did pass some texts."

CLEVELAND -- Royals pitcher Danny Duffy will miss his scheduled start against Minnesota on Friday because of tightness in his left elbow.

The injury isn't considered serious and the Royals expect Duffy to start next week against Detroit. He's 1-2 with a 3.63 ERA in three starts.

It's expected the Royals will announce Friday's starter following Thursday's game against the Indians.

Outfielder Lorenzo Cain will likely be sidelined for a month with a strained left hip flexor. Cain was on a minor league rehab assignment while recovering from a strained left groin.

I think it was because he was served with divorce papers.

NEW YORK -- New York Mets right-hander Mike Pelfrey is "99 percent" certain that he will undergo season-ending Tommy John surgery, he told reporters Thursday.


An MRI revealed that Pelfrey had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.


"It's frustrating," Pelfrey said. "I've never been hurt."
Pelfrey will visit with Dr. James Andrews on Friday, according to manager Terry Collins.

"The prognosis was not very good," Collins said.
"[The doctors] came back and said that I have a tear in my UCL and they brought up my options," said Pelfrey, who was placed on the disabled list on Tuesday with what was thought to be right elbow inflammation.
"They brought up the PRP, which is an injection. They put it at like 10-20 percent that it works, and so there was an 80 percent chance I was still gonna have surgery. So I thought it was the best case for me that we just go ahead and do it. Obviously, I'm still supposed to go down and visit Andrews personally and we'll go from there, but I think surgery is about 99 percent [that] it's gonna happen."
Pelfrey first began to experience "tightness" and "grabbing" on the first pitch of every inning in his last start on Saturday -- an eight-inning, one-run outing against the San Francisco Giants.
Initially, Pelfrey thought it was just standard tendinitis because he didn't feel any pain.
But after getting a precautionary MRI and a second opinion, it turned out to be much worse.
"I told them I can pitch, because I feel good," Pelfrey said. "But the thing that kind of backed me off was it was brought up to me that I could pitch and alter my mechanics and end up hurting my shoulder. And my shoulder feels great. And I think that's the last thing that I want."
This could mark the end of Pelfrey's career with the Mets. He's arbitration-eligible one more time but is making $5.6875 million this year, making him a definite non-tender candidate in December.


Pelfrey is the second-longest tenured Met behind third baseman David Wright. Pelfrey debuted in July 8, 2006.
Right-hander Chris Schwinden will take Pelfrey's rotation spot on Friday night against the Colorado Rockies in Denver. Left-hander Robert Carson was optioned to Double-A Binghamton.
Long term, the Mets could turn to highly touted Triple-A prospect Matt Harvey to possibly replace Pelfrey in the rotation. The flame-throwing 23-year-old is 2-1 with a 4.85 ERA in five starts for Buffalo.
The 28-year-old Pelfrey had pitched to a 2.29 ERA in his first three starts in 2012.
"I just feel terrible for you, especially right now with what you had to endure last summer, coming off a big year the year before, and right now pitching as good as I've seen you pitch in person," Collins told Pelfrey.
"He has his sinker back, he has command of his curveball. Everything was working. And to have this happen is a true shame, not only for him but for us."
Pelfrey owns a 50-54 record and a 4.36 ERA in 149 career starts, all for the Mets.

DETROIT -- Slumping third baseman Brandon Inge was released by the Detroit Tigers on Thursday.

The team announced the move following a 5-4 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Inge is batting .100 (2 for 20) with a home run and two RBIs this season.




"It's one of those things you can kind of see how things are going before they come. But it's no hard feelings whatsoever. This is my family, this is where I've been my whole career. I'll miss the guys, I will," Inge said. "But I have a chance to go play maybe somewhere else. It may be a good thing, a good start for me personally, but my heart will always be in Detroit for 100 percent and forever."
The 34-year-old Inge is in his 12th season in the majors, all with Detroit. He played mostly third base for the Tigers, but has also caught, played the outfield and second base.

"He's been a true soldier for a long time, even long before I was here," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "He's been with me here six-plus years now and like I say, a true solider."

Inge is a .234 career hitter with 140 homers and 589 RBIs. With his release, Ramon Santiago is the lone player remaining from the 2003 Tigers team that lost a near-record 119 games. Inge had been the only player that had remained with the organization uninterrupted since 2003.

Detroit also announced it had called up first baseman Brad Eldred from Triple-A Toledo after the game.

"We had some discussions today and we just feel at this point we're trying to add some offense," general manager Dave Dombrowski said. "Eldred's been hot as can be. And it's a situation where we're going to try to make a move to get him on the ballclub and see if he can give us a little offense, primarily from the DH position."

Eldred was hitting .388 at Toledo with 13 home runs and 35 RBIs in 20 games.

Detroit is responsible for the $4,808,743 remaining on Inge's $5.5 million salary this year and the $500,000 buyout of his $6 million option for 2013, a total of $5,308,743. But the Tigers could save up to $417,049 if he were to sign with another team Friday.

BALTIMORE -- Toronto Blue Jays starter Dustin McGowan has experienced shoulder pain while rehabilitating a foot injury and will be shut down for two weeks.

Blue Jays manager John Farrell said Thursday that the 30-year-old right-hander experienced some soreness in his shoulder during long tossing. McGowan underwent an MRI and has consulted with orthopedist Dr. James Andrews.

Farrell said the test confirmed there was inflammation but no new damage.

McGowan, Toronto's first round draft pick (33rd overall) in the 2000 draft, has a history of shoulder and knee injuries and spent most of the previous three seasons on the disabled list. He opened this season on the 15-day disabled list after being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis.

He is 20-24 with 4.80 ERA in 80 games, 60 of them starts, over parts of five seasons.

BALTIMORE -- Orioles left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada will fly to Los Angeles on Sunday for a second opinion on his ailing left elbow and says ligament reconstruction is likely if surgery is recommended.

"If it's going to be surgery, it's probably going to be Tommy John," Wada said Thursday through interpreter Seob Yoon.

The Japanese pitcher was previously diagnosed with ligament damage after a magnetic resonance angiogram. But the 31-year-old wants to consult with orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum before returning to Baltimore to consider his options with Orioles officials.

Wada, who signed an $8.15 million, two-year contract in December, experienced discomfort in his throwing elbow during spring training and was placed on the disabled list before the season.

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Indians have placed reliever Rafael Perez on the 15-day disabled list with a strained side muscle.

Perez got hurt on Wednesday while pitching one scoreless inning against Kansas City. The left-hander is 1-0 with a 3.52 ERA in eight appearances. This is the first time in his career he's been on the disabled list. He's eligible to be activated on May 11.

Perez pitched in 71 games for Cleveland last season.

To replace Perez, the Indians recalled lefty Nick Hagadone from Triple-A Columbus.

This is Hagadone's second stint with Cleveland. He was with the Indians from April 17-22 and posted a 2.70 ERA in three outings. In Columbus, Hagadone hasn't allowed a run in 7 1-3 innings.

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago White Sox have placed reliever Jesse Crain on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left oblique and recalled right-hander Dylan Axelrod from Triple-A Charlotte.

The White Sox announced the moves before Friday's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Crain hasn't pitched since April 20, and he wound up on the DL even though manager Robin Ventura had said he didn't expect him to land there. The 30-year-old right-hander is 0-0 with a 2.57 ERA and has 10 strikeouts in seven innings over six appearances.

Axelrod is 2-1 with a 1.08 ERA and 26 strikeouts in four starts with Charlotte.

The Phillies must really suck if their getting their asses kicked by the Cubs!!

Maholm, Castro lead Cubs to 5-1 win over Phillies
The Associated Press – 1 hour 9 minutes ago

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Paul Maholm pitched 6 1-3 solid innings, Starlin Castro had two hits and an RBI, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-1 Friday night.

Maholm (2-2) allowed a run on five hits with a strikeout and no walks, dropping his ERA from 8.36 to 6.20, and Tony Campana had two hits and scored twice for the Cubs.

Ty Wigginton homered for Philadelphia, which has scored two runs or less in 11 of 20 games this season.

Roy Halladay (3-2) was unhittable at the start, retiring 10 straight batters with four strikeouts, but surrendered three runs on six hits in a three-inning stretch to fall to 1-5 lifetime against Chicago. He allowed three runs on six hits with five strikeouts and two walks.

Rafael Dolis pitched two scoreless innings for his first major-league save.

Chicago took a 1-0 lead in the fourth. Campana led off and got the Cubs' first hit on a bunt, sliding safely into first and just beating the tag of Wigginton. After stealing second, Campana scored on Castro's bloop single to center.

Castro is 6 for 12 lifetime against Halladay.

The Cubs scored two more runs in the sixth on RBIs by Alfonso Soriano and Ian Stewart. Chicago went ahead 2-0 on Soriano's single to left that scored Campana, who led off the frame with his second straight infield single. Stewart doubled to right to drive home Bryan LaHair, who had singled, for a 3-0 cushion.

The inning ended with a blunder by Soriano, who was caught flat-footed in between third and home on Darwin Barney's groundout that resulted in a rare 1-3-2 double play.

But the three-run lead was more than enough for Maholm.

The Phillies' offense, still missing injured All-Stars Chase Utley (knee) and Ryan Howard (Achilles'), didn't' resemble the unit that tallied 20 runs in its last three games.

After Carlos Ruiz's second-inning double, Maholm retired 15 of the next 16 batters before Wigginton's homer to left with one out in the seventh. That hit ended the night for Maholm.

Philadelphia threatened to score more in the seventh off left-handed reliever James Russell after putting runners on first and second with a pair of infield hits, but Soriano caught Juan Pierre's drive to left after initially misplaying the ball for the final out.

The Cubs tacked on two runs in the ninth off right-handed reliever Michael Schwimmer on Reed Johnson's RBI triple that got past a diving Hunter Pence in right. Johnson scored on David DeJesus' single.

Notes: SS Jimmy Rollins went 0 for 4 for Philadelphia and has three hits in his last 37 at-bats. ... Wigginton extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a fourth-inning single. ... Despite many empty seats on a chilly, windy night, the Phillies announced their 211th straight regular-season sellout with a crowd of 45,261. ... Campana has five steals in his last four games. ... Philadelphia RHP Joe Blanton (1-3, 4.34) is scheduled to face Cubs RHP Randy Wells (0-0, 3.60) Saturday night in the second game of the four-game series.

Best Pitcher in baseball?

Kershaw wins 10th straight decision, 3-2 over Nats
The Associated Press – 8 minutes ago

LOS ANGELES (AP) The sign of a great pitcher is the ability to win regardless of the circumstances. Clayton Kershaw has been on quite a role in that department, even when he hasn't had his best stuff.

The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner pitched eight innings to win his 10th straight decision, Andre Ethier hit a two-run homer and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 3-2 on Friday night in a matchup of the top two teams in the National League.

''There wasn't anything pretty about it,'' Kershaw said. ''I was a little bit erratic. I didn't have great fastball command, but I was fortunate to battle through eight - which was big. Getting two runs early was huge.''

Kershaw (2-0) allowed three hits, struck out six and walked one. He became the first Dodgers pitcher to win 10 consecutive decisions since Ramon Martinez from August 1995 through May 1996.

''It was a tough ballgame,'' Nationals manager Davey Johnson said. ''Kershaw made a lot of quality pitches. He crowded right-handed hitters all night. We weren't able to hit the ball real hard.''

Kershaw hasn't lost since last Aug. 7 at Arizona, when the Diamondbacks beat him 4-3 with two-run homers by Kelly Johnson and Cody Ransom. The 24-year-old lefty also joined Ed Roebuck and Orel Hershiser as the only Dodgers to win 12 decisions in a row at home since the franchise moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958.

''This is a good place to pitch, so I definitely don't take that for granted,'' said Kershaw, whose home streak has spanned 16 starts with a 1.22 ERA. ''Wins are nothing I can control, so I'm not worried about individual wins. The team had a lot to do with that.''

Kenley Jansen pitched a hitless ninth for his first save of the season, but had to hold his breath until Danny Espinosa's bid for a tying home run landed just foul in right field. Espinosa eventually lined out to center field before Jansen plunked pinch-hitter Chad Tracy with two outs and struck out Jesus Flores to end it.

Ross Detwiler (2-1) allowed three runs and five hits over six innings before he was lifted for a pinch-hitter. The left-hander had allowed only one earned run in 16 innings over his first three starts, a homer by Cincinnati's Ryan Ludwick.

The Nationals, who allowed a major league-low four home runs through their first 19 games - and only one measly run by their starting pitchers in a span of 34 2-3 innings - fell behind 2-0 in the first when Ethier drove his fifth homer into the right-field bullpen following Matt Kemp's single.

''They are on fire. Hitters like that are carrying their ballclub,'' Johnson said. ''We made mistakes to them. It was a curveball on the inside half to Ethier and he jumped all over it. He got ahead of Kemp, but you can't throw him down low. That's where Det kept throwing it.''

Ethier leads the majors with 24 RBIs, one more than Kemp, who stranded two runners in scoring position when he grounded out against Ryan Mattheus to end the seventh.

''I'm going to try to keep pace with Kemp any way I can,'' Ethier said. ''Obviously, that's what's expected of us and what we expect of ourselves. That's why Kemp and I are sitting 3-4 in the middle of the lineup, to be productive and get runs across. Other guys will pick each other up as the season goes on, but I think they're doing a good enough job themselves to get on base and score runs.''

Kemp and Ethier opened the fourth with singles and both runners advanced on Kershaw's sacrifice bunt before Juan Uribe beat out a single to deep shortstop to make it 3-0. But the Nationals broke through against Kershaw in the sixth with a leadoff walk to Jayson Werth and Adam LaRoche's home run into the right-field bullpen on an 0-2 pitch.

''They're a little bit depleted in their offense because of injuries, but they put some good at-bats together,'' Kershaw said. ''I just hung a slider to LaRoche and he did what he was supposed to do with it.''

NOTES: A moment of silence was observed in memory of former Dodger Bill ''Moose'' Skowron, who died Friday of congestive heart failure at age 81. ... The Dodgers recalled RHP Nathan Eovaldi from Double-A Chattanooga and optioned LHP Michael Antonini to Triple-A Albuquerque. ... Washington's three starting pitchers in this series - Detwiler, Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez - all came in with 2-0 records and ERAs under 1.53. ... Before LaRoche's third homer of the season, no one on the Nationals' roster had hit more than two home runs - making them the only team with that dubious distinction. ... Ethier's homer was his first off a left-handed pitcher in 75 at-bats since his solo shot against San Diego's Josh Spence on July 10, 2011, at Dodger Stadium.
