If the guy is good enough to have a no-hitter going in the seventh inning, how exactly would they be "rushing" him. I know this is the prevailing wisdom on Hughes right now, but I think he showed tonight that he's good enough and ready enough to be in the majors for good, regardless of his age or minor league experience. Maybe it's just one great game, and the injury certainly changes things, but the Yankees should be asking "what were we so worried about?"

Were you watching the post-game interview?

I am troubled why Torre would say that and am amazed Torre can know so much so fast...

Of course he is good enough to pitch right now. That isn't the issue. But this kid is 20 years old. Don't you think there is a reason he has been on a strict pitch count since hes been in the Yankee organization? Its to curtail this sort of thing from happening. Sure its great to watch him and its a good story as well, but IMO hes too young to bring up to the bigs for these past 2 starts when the Yankees could have chosen other guys to fill in. What were we so worried about? This.

Yeah it was in the postgame. I'm troubled as well by Torre saying this without any facts.

Sorry, but that makes no sense. If the guy is as legit as he has shown, and has shown tonight, why not bring him up? What difference does it make?

This injury (something that has nothing to do with his pitch count or atmospheric conditions) could have happened in A, AA, or AAA. Made no difference where he was at. Now, if you could show me proof that him starting in the majors caused this injury, I will hide my tail and leave this forum.

Yanks' Hughes out 4-6 weeks after injury during no-hit bid

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Phil Hughes was working on a no-hitter in the seventh inning of his second major league start when an injury cost him a chance to make history.

That was the only bit of bad news for the New York Yankees, who responded to George Steinbrenner's statement in a big way Tuesday night with a 10-1 rout of the Texas Rangers.

Hank Blalock hit a leadoff double against reliever Mike Myers in the eighth inning for Texas' first hit, not long after Hughes (1-1) left with an apparent leg injury and became the latest New York pitcher to go down.

The 20-year-old right-hander, considered one of the top prospects in baseball, was cruising along in a dominant performance when he winced and grabbed his left thigh after throwing an 0-2 breaking ball to Mark Teixeira with one out in the seventh. It was Hughes' 83rd pitch.

Yankees manager Joe Torre, pitching coach Ron Guidry and a trainer came out to the mound to check on Hughes, who was removed from the game and walked gingerly back to the dugout, where he received a warm reception from teammates. The nature of the injury wasn't immediately known.

"He said he felt a pop," catcher Jorge Posada said.

Hughes walked three and struck out six. He left with a 9-0 lead.

Hughes was called up from Triple-A Scranton to fill a spot in New York's injury-depleted rotation. Mike Mussina (hamstring), Carl Pavano (forearm) and Jeff Karstens (broken right leg) are on the disabled list. Chien-Ming Wang also missed the first three weeks of the season with a hamstring injury.

Are the yankees going to have the record for most starting pitchers going on the dl? Every week a starter goes down :~(

So do they know what exactly his injury is?
