Hughes: "I'm not dead yet"

Postby jtbarr » Tue May 08, 2007 10:54 am

May 7 Bryan Hoch, of NewYork.Yankees.MLB.com, reports New York Yankees SP Philip Hughes (hamstring) threw on flat ground Sunday, May 6. The team also learned that Hughes' injury might not be as serious as the MRI taken Saturday, May 5, suggested.


With this info any phychic doctors out there want to predict a return of only 3 more weeks for Hughes? Kinda sounds that way from today's report. I know we can't tell but I just wanna see what others think.

I ask because he's a FA in my league and I could drop my worst pitcher for him if it'll only be another few weeks before he returns. Thoughts?

Regardless, Yanks aren't going to rush him back if they don't have to... they'll take their time with him (like Seattle with King Felix)

Just a hunch but I think there is more to Felix's injury than they are leading on.

Probably, but I still think it with Wang, Moose, Pettitte and Clemens on the way, no way they bring him back before they are 100% sure that he is fine.

However, I'm thinking that since this is a hammy injury and not the dreaded pitcher-arm injury, the rules may be different. Hamstring feels good, back in the rotation.

Just hope on my part since I had him, dropped him, want him back.
