Three more cuts

Tweet [1]

RHP Alan Horne, RHP Jeff Marquez and LHP Chase Wright were reassigned to minor-league camp.

All three pitched today.

Horne: 1 1 0 0 2 0

Marquez: 1 2 2 1 1 0

Wright: 0.2 1 2 1 2 0

Talked to Phil Hughes after he came out the game. He said he was pleased with his fastball command more than anything else. Getting to camp early has paid off for him so far.

“I don’t want to waste all my good innings in spring training,” he said.

It’s still very early but you have to be impressed with how Hughes has looked this spring. After his disjointed 2007 season, he seems determined to prove he the pitcher the Yankees have always believed he is.
