Phil Hughes on Comeback Trail

I've posted this elsewhere but, here is a little information that I am sure will spark some interest:

Anyone who is familiar with Beckett Trading Cards knows that Phil Hughes is an avid collector and visitor to their message board. Here are some comments he has made today on the message board.

Brad1431:
How is the rehab going? I heard you have been throwing lately. How do you feel?

nyyphily45:
good, have my first rehab start Monday

Brad1431:
Where is it? Maybe I can catch the game. What is it like trying to rehab and knowing how much the team needs you? It must be frustrating.

nyyphily45:
Tampa Yankees, FSL

So great news for Yankee fans and fantasy fans.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- New York Yankees rookie Phil Hughes pitched two innings Monday for Class A Tampa in his first minor league rehab start since being sidelined more than two months by ankle and hamstring injuries.

Hughes didn't allow a hit, gave up an unearned run and walked two. He struck out three against the Dunedin Blue Jays.

His next start is scheduled for Saturday with Double-A Trenton.

Hughes hurt his hamstring May 1 while he was working on a no-hit bid in the seventh inning against Texas in his second major league start. He hurt his left ankle May 25 while doing an agility drill during a rehab program for a strained left hamstring.

"I was a little tentative in the first inning, but that's to be expected," said Hughes, who threw 20 of 36 pitches for strikes and had his fastball reach 94 mph. "The second inning I felt a lot more comfortable. I was kind of letting it go and not really thinking about landing as much on my front foot or anything like that."

Hughes said he was encouraged that his ankle and hamstring held up well.

"I didn't feel a thing out there so it was good," Hughes said.

The Yankees are 42-43 at the All-Star break and their rotation has been hurt by injuries.

"It's been very tough," Hughes said. "Not just the fact that the team is struggling, but from a selfish point of view, you never want to be out, whether I was in Triple-A or the big leagues.

"It's frustrating, especially the amount of time. You know little injuries are going to happen, but twice in a row like it did, it's very frustrating. I try not to dwell on it too much."

But what I haven't seen in any report is a timetable or even a wild guess on when he'll be back in the bigs.

Anyone have any info on whether we're talking 2 weeks, 4 weeks, more? thanks.

I saw something to the effect that it could be July 23 or 24 against the Royals. Don't remember where I saw it, however.

Only 3 HR and a .143 ISO from a first baseman in 118 AAA PA so far? Nice AVG but he's looking an awful lot like James Loney right now.

I was under the impression he was on a real low pitch count tonight. Then he would make a second Thunder start next week. Here's hoping so because I just bought two tix for next Thursday's Thunder/Rock Cats game in New Britain, CT. If the Thunder have an off day then that would make Thursday a possible Hughes day.

From NY Post...

He will start for Trenton again on Wednesday against Binghamton. Then he likely will move to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for a final rehab start.


Dang, will miss him by a day.
