Hughes looking a-o-Kei to meBy
Time to wave good bye to Kei Igawa. Tonight at Scranton, Phil Hughes went six shut-out innings, giving up just 2 hits and 1 walk while striking out 7. He threw 54 of his 73 pitches for strikes, and Chad Jennings, in his excellent SW-B Yankees blog, notes that Hughes looked great. Hughes will make one more start to push it to 100 pitches before returning to the Bronx. Side note: Joba starts later today for AAA and Kennedy is set for Saturday, the day after Jeff Karsten’s next rehab appearance.
