Heard a "pop"

His performance on Tuesday was what I needed from him until the 7th.... should I just find myself a new prospect?..... He cant sit on my bench for 4-6 weeks... maybe people will forget him and I can get him back...

If you dont know the injury just read about it...
:-t :-t :-t :-t

I'm dropping him tomorrow unless someone talks me out of it....

this is what rotoworld posted

Phil Hughes is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after straining his hamstring Tuesday in his start against the Rangers.
Incredible. At least the Yankees are getting Mike Mussina back this week, and Hughes showed enough tonight to indicate that he could be of a lot of use after the break. In truth, this injury might have been the best thing for his long-term health, as the Yankees won't be tempted to overuse him to compensate for the shortcomings of the rest of the staff. This means Kei Igawa will likely stay in the rotation following Mussina's return.

im hearing acl from other posts i hope not, he had some good stuff lastnight.

the yankees are a wrap this year long live BOSTON

I just watched the replay. It didnt look too bad, but you could tell he was in pain.

The only problem is. At this point, with NY losing all their pitchers to injury, and being last in the division. I could see them lying about the extent of the injury so as to not cause a panic.

I would be surprised to see him again before the all-star break. They are obviously going to be very careful.

Funny, I saw he was pitching a no-no during his final inning so I go to my computer, try to pick him up but he had been taken 15 minutes before. I then walk back to my TV and literally on the next pitch, he comes up lame with the injury. Very strange.

I think that's the fantasy baseball gods way of telling me to go and pick up Lincecum. He's not on the Yankees so he won't get injured. Their staff is cursed so far this year. But I would definitely not count them out. Look at the talent they have. When they are all healthy and back on track (maybe that started last night in Texas) within the next month or so, they could easily run off a few long winning stretches. They seem to do it every year.

I am hearing 4-6 weeks, but he is on the 15 day DL. What does this mean for owners of him? I already have Lincecum, Clemons, and Carpenter sitting on my bench. Hughes was just starting to pay off too.

I just dropped him in my league. I don't see Hughes coming back for a while even after his injury heals up since all of the Yankees pitchers are finally coming off the DL. They rushed their top prospect as a desperation move and this is what happened, I think they'll be a lot more careful with him from now on.

Well guess what? He'll be staying with the big club this year according to Brian Cashman and I think he'll be fine. Why would you drop a good young pitcher (especially in keeper leagues!) because he may be out a month? The guy is still breathing and his arm is still fine.
