Hughes’ First Minor League Rehab AssignmentPosted: June 20, 2011
Phil Hughes made his first Minor League rehab assignment and it was very successful. He threw 61 pitches while going 4.1 innings allowing three hits and walk while striking out seven and yielded one run on a homer. He apparently sat at 92-93 and hit 95 on the gun, although there are varying reports as to whether he held his velocity throughout the start. Either way, it’s a step forward, but he’s still rebuilding arm strength and is about a month away.
