If you’re looking for a game to follow today, Scranton is about to face Lehigh Valley. It’ll be Phil Hughes vs. former big leaguer Kris Benson.

Melky Cabrera joined Scranton today and will be in their lineup batting first and playing center.

Hughes will be able to get to around 100 pitches today. The ones to pay attention to are the last 20 or so. That will reveal his arm strength to some degree and whether he is ready to return to the majors.

The Yankes need a starter for Saturday’s game in Baltimore and Hughes could be it.

Chad Jennings is on the scene in Allentown.
