Yankees | Andy Pettitte pushed back

New York Yankees SP Andy Pettitte (back) is dealing with back spasms and won't make his start Saturday, April 13. SP Phil Hughes will be moved up to take his place. Manager Joe Girardi is hoping Pettitte can start Tuesday, April 16, or Wednesday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Girardi has downplayed Pettitte's back issues, so this doesn't seem to be anything too serious, yet. Pettitte was expected to have minor injury concerns at his age, anyway, so this might be a blessing in disguise in order to rest him up.
