Yankees Send Down Hughes

The Yankees can't be too upset that they have to send down highly touted prospect Phil Hughes to Triple-A. With CC Sabathia, and A.J. Burnett filling two new spots, there is simply no room for him. However, Hughes came into Spring Training in a good frame of mind and posted a 2.19 ERA in four appearances. "Hughes had a great camp," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. "He knows he did great." Hughes is probably the first pitcher up if someone goes down with an injury, and will likely get a couple spot starts if all goes well in Triple-A.

Last season, Hughes was 0-4 with a 6.62 ERA.
