Hughes begins throwing program


Via Erik Boland, Phil Hughes officially started his throwing program today, playing catch with pitching coach Larry Rothschild for all of five minutes. Yeah, it’s going to be a slow process. Like I said when Hughes first hit the disabled list, whatever they get out of him this season is gravy. Expect nothing. For shame.
