Just got an e-mail back from Phil Hughes. He threw his second session of batting practice today in Tampa today and it went well.
He is scheduled to make a rehab start for Class A Tampa on Monday at home against Dunedin then will head for Trenton and Scranton.
If Hughes has no issues, it’s possible he could join the Yankees during the last week of the month. Just keep in mind that they will be very deliberate with him.
But the fact that he is pitching in a game on Monday is certainly good news. With Kei Igawa struggling, the Yankees need Hughes in the rotation.
“I can’t wait to get back,” he wrote.
