ANDY PETTITTE allowed three earned runs and seven singles in five-plus innings for Double A Trenton on Wednesday night in his third minor-league start as he works toward making the New York Yankees' rotation.
Pettitte, 39, trying to come back after retiring following the 2010 season, struck out three and walked one in a 10-4 loss to the Erie SeaWolves, a Tigers affiliate at Trenton's Waterfront Park.
"I felt good," said Pettitte. "It was another step in the right direction."
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Pettitte will make at least one more minor-league start and possibly as many as three more before returning to the big leagues.
Boston outfielder Carl Crawford is going to see orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews for a second opinion on the left elbow that has plagued him since he reported to spring training. Crawford had surgery in January on his left wrist and has not played in a game this season.
* New York Yankees starter Michael Pineda will miss the rest of the season because of a tear in the labrum of his right shoulder. He hasn't appeared in a game this season after being traded from Seattle in January.
* Baltimore pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada will get a second opinion on his ailing left elbow from orthopedist Dr. Lewis Yocum.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter says Wada was diagnosed with ligament damage. Yocum examined Wada before the lefthander signed a 2-year, $8.15 million contract in December. Wada experienced elbow discomfort in February and was placed on the disabled list before the season. He has yet to make his major league debut.
