Pavano, who has made two appearances with the Yankees since June 2005, cut short a bullpen session Wednesday because of discomfort. He hasn't pitched in a game since April 9.
Pavano said the pain has been consistent since he resumed throwing.
``We'll see what Dr. Andrews says since he's the professional,'' Pavano said. ``I just know what I feel.''
Pavano is 1-0 with a 4.76 ERA in two starts, his first appearances for the Yankees following 1 1/2 years of shoulder, back, buttocks, elbow and rib injuries that caused many to question his desire to pitch and some to ridicule him.
``You certainly need to find out how to help him along in this area,'' Yankees manager Joe Torre said this week. ``Is it total rest? Maybe the mound a couple times is too much? I don't know.''
