UPDATE 11PM

Phil Hughes (dead arm) threw 61 pitches during a rehab start for Single-A Staten Island on Sunday.

Hughes threw as hard as 95 mph and was consistently in the 92-93 mph range. He struck out seven, walked one and gave up three hits 4 1/3 innings. Hughes was placed on the disabled list with an inflamed shoulder on April 15. The right-hander might make it back before the end of June, but we’re betting on early July.

Alex Rodriguez has been battling a left shoulder injury of unknown severity for the past couple of weeks, according to Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

“It’s just a small issue that only bothers him when he dives for a ball,” manager Joe Girardi said. Another clubhouse source said Rodriguez has been suffering from “a strain” for several weeks. “He’s managing it as best as he can,” the source said. Rodriguez didn’t comment on Sunday, but denied having a shoulder injury when asked about it during the Yankees’ series against Texas in early May. Before Sunday’s game, his left shoulder was heavily wrapped in large ice packs. Rodriguez has struggled recently, but was in the lineup on Sunday.

From MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch:

CHICAGO — The baseball nestled securely in Russell Martin’s glove, promising just enough time to realize that he was milliseconds away from a collision, and that there had better be a brace for impact.

So Martin tried to use the momentum of Carlos Pena’s charging steps against him, applying a tag during an inevitable hit. Martin kept the ball, and the Yankees held on for a 4-3 victory over the Cubs on Saturday.
