    Hughes threw 84 pitches, so he should be good for 90-95. I'd give him 1 more start in AAA.

    UPDATE, 9:23 p.m.: Hughes is finished. 5.1 3 2 2 1 4. 84/50. He left with a 2-0 lead with two runners on base, having reached his pitch count. Mark Melancon then allowed two hits, leaving Hughes charged with two runs.

    Those are some encouraging lines. Looking forward to seeing him get another shot at the big leagues very soon.

    New York Yankees' Hughes looks like a different pitcher, according to catcher Moeller
    by Ed Price/The Star-Ledger
    Wednesday August 13, 2008, 8:05 PM

    NOTEBOOK

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Phil Hughes is "a whole different pitcher than he was earlier in the year," catcher Chad Moeller said.

    Unless he is needed in Giese's spot Tuesday, Hughes will make at least one more minor-league start before rejoining the Yankees.

    Moeller, who caught Hughes on Tuesday for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, said the difference comes from increased velocity and a cut fastball that Hughes has added to his repertoire.

    "He has a brand-new pitch that he didn't have before," Moeller said Wednesday by phone, "and it's good. He controls it very well. It's going to be a good pitch for him."

    Hughes, scheduled to pitch Sunday for Scranton, could slot into the Yankees rotation Aug. 23 at Baltimore.

    He pitched 5 1/3 innings Tuesday and was charged with two runs, both of which scored after he left the game because he had reached his pitch limit.

    "He was excellent," Moeller said. "There was no way they were getting any runs (off him) the way he was throwing the ball."

    In six starts for the Yankees this year after opening the season in the rotation, Hughes was 0-4 with a 9.00 ERA and then went on the disabled list with a fractured rib.

    That brand new pitch is a cutter. He dropped the slider. He's now a

    Fastball, curve, cutter, change pitcher

    This is one of the reasons why I hate excessive rehab outings....so Hughes is pitching well, his stuff is there, hes able to go deep enough into the games, so why the hell isn't he pitching in the big leagues? Having Hughes for 90 pitches is a better option then having Rasner pitch, and Hughes is just as likely to have a setback in the minors as he is in the majors so don't give me that excuse. There's no increased injury risk by having him do his work on a bigger stage.

    They are building up his arm.... he hasn't thrown 90 pitches yet. They are working him up like it was spring training.

    When I said 90 pitches, it was more his projected pitch count for his next outing.

    If he's healthy enough to throw 90 pitches his next time out, it should be for the big league club in my mind. There's no difference between 90 pitches in the minors and 90 pitches in the majors, except that you can actually help the big league club in the process.

    Well, that I agree with, but maybe they want to give him one more rehab start. In spring training you often see a pitcher's last 2 outings go 85 pitches, 75 pitches, and than a 90-95 pitch outing in his season debut.

    Another strong start by Kershaw today. That makes 5 in a row for the 20 yr old.

    Hopefully a healthy Hughes will duplicate that this year or next.

    Not a great start from Hughes tonight, thus far...

    3 IP- 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

    Disappointed to see him get ahead of so many guys and not be able to put them away. I wonder if his breaking stuff isn't working tonight.

    That's still a far cry from April.....throw a couple of donuts on the board and that line will be fine. Zero walks is the key..... The hits could simply mean he is working on a certain pitch today........same as any pitcher in spring training.

    Another rough inning. He obviously doesn't have it today.

    Hughes is done. He clearly didn't have it tonight.

    What was his final line? Did he go into the 6th?
