Hughes among six Yankees cuts

The Yankees made six roster moves prior to today’s game:

Phil Hughes, Steven Jackson and Anthony Claggett were optioned to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, while Humberto Sanchez was optioned to Double-A Trenton.

Additionally, Jason Johnson and Sergio Mitre have been sent across the street to Minor League camp. Brian Cashman said there just aren’t enough innings to go around this late in camp.


It will be good for Hughes to get some quality innings and be ready for the call up when needed.

That’s tough, we might not see Hughes again until May or later. Actually, I like Hughes, but I hope we don’t see him until July. That would mean everyone is healthy and things are going well.


It is tough this time of year for pitchers to get enough practice.
