Hughes To Make Rehab Start On SundayPosted: June 14, 2011
Via RAB, Phil Hughes threw a simulated game down in Tampa today and it went great, He reportedly hit 91-93 on the radar gun with his fastball consistently and said he felt great. the next step is a 65-pitch rehab start for Class-A Staten Island, who starts their short season on Friday. He will be pitching at MCU Park in Coney Island, home of the Brooklyn Cyclones, so if you’re in the area, check it out. I will be at the game, so I’ll probably send out some tweets. Expect about another month until Phil is back in pinstripes.
