Game 85: Welcome Back, Phil!

(Bronx Baseball Daily)

Tonight’s the night was have been waiting for since late April and a night that we weren’t sure would come this season.  Phil Hughes will come off the disabled list the start his first game since April 14. A trip the DL, dozens of tests, a lot of rest, and three minor lead rehab outings later he is back. Let’s hope he can come back strong because according to reports, his velocity is back, along with his stuff and confidence.  At the moment he’s sporting a 13.94 ERA, so hopefully he can improve upon that.  Here’s the lineup:

  1. Derek Jeter, SS
  2. Curtis Granderson, CF
  3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
  4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B
  5. Robinson Cano, 2B
  6. Nick Swisher, RF
  7. Jorge Posada, DH
  8. Russell Martin, C
  9. Brett Gardner, LF

And on the bump as I said above it will be Phil Hughes.  This one will start a little after seven and can be seen on YES or ESPN.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
