New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte will return to New Jersey this week to make the next start of his comeback.

Pettitte is scheduled to be on the mound Wednesday night when the Trenton Thunder, New York's Double-A team, hosts the Erie SeaWolves. It will be the second minor league game Pettite appears in this season, as he tries to return to the majors following a one-year retirement.

Pettitie last pitched for the Thunder on an injury rehab assignment in September 2010.

Wednesday's game, due to start at 7:05 p.m., is expected to draw a large crowd. Thunder officials are asking fans to arrive early and take advantage of a shuttle parking lot not far from Waterfront Park.
