Phil Hughes pitched well again for Scranton This notebook also has updates on Johnny Damon and the rotation for this weekend.
Phil texted after his start “Felt good, threw the ball well.” Works for me. No word yet on where his next start will be. Could be Tuesday (if Giese goes back to the bullpen) or not until Aug. 23 in Baltimore, which is when they would next need somebody not named Pettitte, Mussina or Ponson.
Robinson Cano and Melky Cabrera have another thing in common: They’re struggling this season.
Mike Ashmore, who knows his Thunder, has a good breakdown of the Carl Pavano’s start last night over on his blog. We encourage you to check it out for more info on the American Idle.
