Yanks’ Hughes suffers setback

 

New York Yankees’  manager, Joe Girardi, admitted that there is quite a bit of concern involving right hander, Phil Highes, who on Monday suffered a setback during his rehabilitation session in Florida. Hughes, who won 18 games this year and came into camp as the projected number two starter, had to stop his bullpen session after only about a dozen pitches, due to what’s being described as a dead arm. “It’s just the same as before,” said Hughes, who went on the DL back on April. “It’s like nothing’s coming out … just a lot of deadness … nothing really there after the first 10 (pitches) or so. So i’m just going to take a couple days … rest it … and reevaluate it from there.” The Yankees plan on sending him to team doctor, Christopher Ahmad, on Monday night. In his three starts, prior to going on the disabled list, Hughes, who had trouble touching 90 miles per hour on the radar gun, had put together an unimpressive 0-1 mark with a lofty 13.94 ERA. “When you’re not able to bounce back from your normal routine … that’s a concern,” Girardi said. “When something like this happens … it is a concern.”
