Hughes not included in next week’s pitching probablesBy
Joe Girardi announced this afternoon that A.J. Burnett, CC Sabathia, and Ivan Nova will start early next week in Cleveland, meaning Phil Hughes is likely to make at least one more rehab start in the minors. He last pitched on Wednesday, so he would have lined up for Burnett’s start on Monday. Hughes looked very good last time out, but it’ll the important thing is how he rebounds from emptying the tank. You’d rather see how he does in the minors instead of a game that counts.
