BA on Hughes & KennedyBy
Kary Booher at Baseball America checked in on Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy following their season debuts with Triple-A Scranton over the weekend. Hughes struggled early with the fastball, but overcame it later and also worked on his change. Kennedy outdueled Carlos Carrasco, the Phil’s top pitching prospect, and showcased the improvement he made on his curveball during his winter ball stint. Even with the Yanks’ greatly improved rotation, I’m willing to bet these two get at least fifteen big league starts between them.
