Phil Hughes update

Brian Cashman revealed today that Phil Hughes has a Grade 3 ankle sprain and will need 4-6 weeks of rehab time before he gets back on the mound.

Given that will take Hughes probably an additional four weeks to get his arm ready to pitch, we’re looking at 8-10 weeks before he is back on the mound. And that’s assuming everything goes well.

So don’t expect Hughes back before mid-August. A Grade 3 sprain is the most serious as it indicates a ligament tear. That is on top of the Grade 2 hamstring tear he already has.

Hughes is wearing a boot on his foot to limit his mobility.
