TAMPA, FLA. (AP) - New York Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte has taken another step forward in his comeback by throwing in his second simulated game.

Pettitte, who ended a one season retirement by agreeing to a minor league contract on March 16, threw 25 of 33 pitches for strikes in the game broken down into two segments. He struck out five of the nine batters he faced.

Pettitte could be ready to join the Yankees in May. The left-hander said his arm feels great, but that he has a lot of work left when it comes to building leg strength.
