Phil Hughes was encouraged by today’s bullpen and said he’s expecting to make a rehab start in five days.

Hughes isn’t sure where he’ll make that start, but Larry Rothschild told him he thinks he’s ready to make a start, probably going about five innings.

Hughes will continue to do his arm strengthening exercises between now and then, with a lot of long toss and one regular bullpen.

“I felt like balls were coming out pretty good,” Hughes said. “We’ll have to wait and see.”
