NEW YORK — Andy Pettitte would often glare down hitters from the mound, his hat pulled tightly over his forehead and his glove shielding his face so that only his eyes were visible to those watching the tall lefty from Texas. That intensity was gone Sunday. Instead, Pettitte was visibly emotional as the Yankees retired his No. 46 one day after longtime teammate Jorge Posada was honored by New York. Pettitte was surrounded by teammates, family, friends and cheering Yankees faithful as the organization unveiled his plaque in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium during a pregame ceremony. He also made a nearly 12-minute speech. "A little over 20 years ago, I sat in the old Yankee Stadium bullpen, we were playing the Texas Rangers," Pettitte said. "I had made the team out of spring training as a left-handed reliever and I sat there and looked around and said 'Wow, this is absolutely amazing.' Looking back on that day, I could never of imagined, 20 years later, the most storied franchise in sports history would be honoring me in such a way." Pettitte was with the Yankees for 15 of his 18 seasons, going 219-127 with a 3.97 ERA with New York and 256-153, 3.85 overall. He holds the franchise strikeout record with 2,020 and is No. 3 in wins behind Whitey Ford and Red Ruffing . The Yankees suffered a blow during their game against the Indians when LHP CC Sabathia felt pain in his surgically repaired right knee. He left in the third inning and is expected to be placed on the disabled list. MARINERS CUT RODNEY: Seattle designated struggling reliever and former Rays All-Star Fernando Rodney for assignment after Saturday night's game. Rodney has a 5.68 ERA and six blown saves this season."The fact is, we are just not getting it done," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said after his team blew a ninth-inning lead. "That is the 17th blown save and the 22nd loss in the opponent's last at-bat."Rodney was an All-Star in 2014 with Seattle. His best season was 2012, his first with the Rays, when he posted a 0.60 ERA, had 48 saves and finished fifth in the AL Cy Young Award voting.Rodney said the move was not unexpected."No surprise," the 13-year veteran said. "You know when you have not been doing your job. I have been waiting." FAN STRUCK: The Cubs said a female fan hit by a line drive foul ball was conscious and taken to a hospital. The woman, who was seated on the first-base side, was carried off on a stretcher after being struck by a foul from Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber in the first inning. ASTROS: OF George Springer , out since July 2 with a fractured right wrist, is scheduled to take batting practice tonight. METS: 3B David Wright is set to return to the lineup for the first time since April 14. Wright landed on the disabled list a week into the season with a right hamstring strain and since then has suffered from a major lower-back issue. ORIOLES: SS J.J. Hardy is headed to the 15-day disabled list with a left groin injury. ROCKIES: RHP Rafael Betancourt , 40, was designated for assignment, possibly signaling the end of the his 11-year career. TWINS: Closer Glen Perkins , sidelined since Wednesday with a bulging disc in his neck, appears likely to avoid the disabled list after getting a cortisone shot and could be available Tuesday, when the team visits the Rays.
