Andy Pettitte (groin) will be placed on the disabled list and could be out 4-5 weeks, according to general manager Brian Cashman.
Sergio Mitre will replace him in the rotation, starting on Saturday against Kansas City. Pettitte left Sunday's start in the third inning with a Grade 1 strain of his left groin. Pettitte strained his left groin back in 2001 and missed 15 days. He said he could not yet compare this injury to that injury. Mitre deserves a look as a spot starter on Saturday, while Pettitte obviously needs to be benched from activate fantasy rosters until healthy. Jul. 18 - 8:14 pm et

Why must we go with some JAG retread like Mitre or Gaudin, I thought we had some good SP's in the minors?
What about Ivan Nova, why can't we give him some starts instead?
exactly, why settle for these bums? we have to score 7 runs to win when these guys are starting. I say give them a shot, if they have ONE bad start, give the kid Nova a shot. It doesn't make too much sense to trade for a SP unless the injury is more serious than believed.
