David Laurila of FanGraphs recently chatted with Phil Hughes … well, it was a really one-sided chat. Laurila asked Hughes about his repertoire and the adjustments he’s made through the years, and Phil basically went on to talk about his evolution as a pitcher since high school. Interestingly enough, he mentioned that his stride and other mechanical nuances haven’t been the same since blowing out his hamstring in 2007. Arm injuries are obviously the major concern for pitchers, but we often write off the long-term of leg injuries. Anyway, make sure you check it out. It’s well worth your time.
