Phil Hughes pitching update
By Delia E.
1:39pm: Phil Hughes had went through 2 scoreless innings at the minor league complex. He pitched a 1, 2, 3 second inning and the final out was a broken bat pop-up that he caught while heading to the dugout.
So far so good.
1:47pm: Hughes gave up a solo HR followed by a quick ground out. He allows 2 runs in the third inning. Keep in mind, Hughes is just getting his work in.
1:55pm: Hughes finishes three innings trailing 2-1 to the Philadelphia High-A team. His catcher is Francisco Cervelli. Not everyone can have the day off today.
2:53pm: Hughes finished the 6th inning 20 minutes ago with his fourth strikeout. Hughes threw 91 pitches and is most likely done.
