If losing CC Sabathia to the DL on Tuesday wasn’t enough, Andy Pettitte will be lost for 6-8 weeks due to an anke fracture.

During the 5th inning of Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Indians, Casey Kotchman hit a comebacker that bounced off of Pettitte’s left¬†ankle. He was immediately taken out of the game.

According to reports, Pettitte suffered an ankle fracture that won’t require surgery. He will be on crutches and require a walking boot. The injury will require a minimum 6 weeks to heal.

This is really a signifigant hit for the Yankees as the rotation before Pettitte was 15-12 with a 4.78 ERA. After Pettitte arrived the rotation was 21-12 with at 3.46 ERA.

Minor Leaguer Adam Warren will now take the spot in the rotation on Friday night and Freddy Garcia has been pushed to Monday.
