Poll Results: Don’t Worry About HughesPosted: April 11, 2011
So as we all know, Phil Hughes has struggled mightily in his first two starts of the 2011 season. Not only is he missing a few miles per hour on his fastball, but he isn’t locating any of his pitches. All of them are catching too much of the plate and because of it he is getting killed. In a bullpen last night, he worked a lot on his mechanics, specifically on using his lower half more. After looking at some video, Larry Rothschild noticed that Hughes wasn’t using his legs as much as he used to. Phil said he felt better, but he still thinks it’s an arm strength issue and hasn’t felt back to full form yet. Hopefully, he fixes whatever he needs to soon, which according to the fans, he will.
