Today is an off day in big league camp, which means all of the action is happening at the minor league complex. Phil Hughes is throwing a simulated game at noon, then Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera are pitching in a minor leauge game at 1 p.m. Should be fairly routine, but I will update this post with information from the complex. Heading over there now.

UPDATE, 12:05 p.m.: Hughes is facing Matt Snyder and David Adams.

UPDATE, 12:08 p.m.: Bonus Cody Eppley appearance. Hughes is through his first inning.

UPDATE, 12:11 p.m.: The High A and Low A teams are at the complex today, so Pettitte and Rivera will be playing with the super young guys.

UPDATE, 12:42 p.m.: Hughes threw about 40 pitches. A comebacker hit him in the back, but both he and Larry Rothschild laughed it off as a non-issue. Hughes expects to start a minor league game next.

UPDATE, 1:02 p.m.: Andy Pettitte is pitching in the High-A game, but both Mason Williams and Gary Sanchez have the day off. Mariano Rivera is pitching in the Low-A game.
