New York Yankees left-handed pitchen Andy Pettitte fractured his left ankle on June 27, 2012. He will miss at least six weeks. The 40-year-old Pettitte was nailed on the ankle by a line drive during a game against the Cleveland Indians. The Yankees said Pettitte would heal hopefully without requiring surgery.

Recent x-rays of Pettitte’s ankle show that he is healing, but not yet at 100%. He is currently doing exercise such as swimming and staionary bike riding, both of which take pressure off of the ankle fracture and can help decrease swelling. He was also getting back to throwing, but stopped recently due to pain and swelling.

“I think I may have did a little too much and that was frustrating for me and kind of scared me,” Pettitte said. “This homestand, we just wanted to make sure I back off whatever I’m doing and just try to let this thing heal up as good as it can. That’s what we’re waiting to see. I’m waiting for the doctors to tell me I can get on a mound and start throwing.”

Said Joe Girardi, current manager of the Yankees; “He was frustrated, but you tell the player, ‘You’re frustrated, but it takes time. You have to let the body do its thing.’ The body never heals quick enough for a player or an organization or anyone. That’s just the bottom line. I think Andy thought he really was going to be back on the mound in three or four weeks.”

If you injure your ankle, it is important to seek treatment. Sometimes it can be hard to tell if an injury is a fracture or a sprain. Also remember that just because you can walk on it, that does not mean that it is not injured!
