Phil Hughes start on 7/3/06

Postby drpiranha » Wed Jul 05, 2006 4:48 pm

Phil Hughes in the game on 7/3 was pulled after 4 2/3 innings with his team ahead 10-0.
He had given up 2 hits, 2 walks, and 0 runs with 9 K's.

Was he pulled because he is on a strict pitch count or was there some other reason?

It seems like a really strange time to pull someone who is pitching effectively.

I'm guessing he was pulled because they were up 10-0 and he was dominating...... nothing else to prove in that game, might as well save the arm of your best pitching prospect for another day.

Yes, he's on a strict 5 inning or 80 pitch count, which ever goes first. In situations like his 1-hitter, they'll let him stretch a bit.

Exactly like what the guy before me just said he is on strict count of 80 pitchers or 5 innings. In the case of that game he was taken out after 80 pitches.

It's just his pitch count, except everything I hear it's 90 pitches and not 80.

80 pitches seems like such a low number to me, its gotta be 90

Notes: Fans and scouts wondering why Yankees' top prospect Philip Hughes, one of five Thunder players selected yesterday to play for the Northern Division squad at the July 12 Eastern League All-Star Game in Altoona, Pa., was pulled after just five innings and 67 pitches Wednesday, there is a reason.

The orders came from Tampa.

Concerned that Hughes will overuse his golden right arm, the Yankees' minor league brass have put Hughes on a five-inning, 80-pitch limit (whichever comes first) for the foreseeable future.

Hughes, 20, was dominant Wednesday in throwing a one-hitter over five innings, and that lone hit by New Hampshire's Manny Mayorson didn't even leave the infield.

Hopefully they stretch him a little more pretty soon.

Well he threw a little bit over 90 pitches in his last outing (93 I believe), so for now I'm going by that.
