Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes allowed two hits and one run in four innings Wednesday in his second rehabilitation start for Double-A Trenton. Hughes, who is recovering from left hamstring and ankle injuries, is scheduled to make his next start for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Monday. He threw 57 pitches, including 36 strikes, and had two eight-pitch innings. Yankees pitching instructor Billy Connors said Hughes' mechanics looked fine and stamina was the biggest concern now. "The main thing right now is trying to get his pitch count up," Connors said. "We wanted 60 to 65 today and he was at 57, and he went down and threw 15 in the bullpen afterward to get near 70. That's what he'll get in his next outing."
(Updated 07/18/2007).
FANTASY ANALYSIS
The Mets scored their run off Hughes in the first. "In that first inning, I wasn't getting out over my front foot very well," said Hughes, whose fastball reached 92 mph. "I was a little wild then, but after that I think I had a pretty good outing. I just have to work on getting my pitches up. My fastball command wasn't great, but I know it's going to be there. And everything else was good." Hughes added he feels no pain and does not think about his injuries anymore. "I feel like I could (go nine innings) physically," he said. "If I went from four innings to nine I might be pretty gassed, but I feel like I could do it. It was humid today, but I don't feel gassed like I left everything out there." Consider Hughes a candidate to return in early August. Take the flier now, but don't expect him to return in Fantasy Week 17 (July 23-29).


I'm thinking about dropping Guthrie for him. :-? :-?

According to the New York Times, when Phil Hughes (hamstring) is ready to come off the disabled list the Yankees plan to have him replace Kei Igawa in the rotation.
(Updated7/20/2007)
IMPACT
Hughes threw a bullpen session Thursday in front of pitching coach Ron Guidry and is set to make a minor league rehab start Monday at Triple-A. Hughes could return following that start, but will most likely be given one more outing after that to increase his stamina.


So I dropped Guthrie for him. I'm hoping for 5 wins 3.50 ERA 1.25 WHIP and a fair amount of K's.

Just snagged him ;-D

To the above poster...I'm not sure dropping Guthrie was the best idea...was he really the worst player on your team, and if so that's a really shallow league.

Guthrie has had 2 pretty sensational starts and Glavine would've been the way better choice to drop.

You guys are right, that was a dumb move. In my defence I was desperate for wins and saw Guthrie was up against BOS/NYY the next 3 weeks. Anyway I changed my mind and dropped Glavine for Guthrie a few days ago. ;-D
