Turns out Phil Hughes is just bad, not hurt

Recommended Posts

Dude has been losing velocity for awhile. 3 years ago when he was a big deal he was sitting at 94/95 with a nasty curve.

Gets injured in Texas during the perfect game, comes back, hasnt been the same guy. 91, 92, and a slower curve.

He's not this bad, but I do remember them "tweaking his mechanics" 2 years ago to "prevent future injury".

This guy only has 2 pitches, and one of them is a 91 mph fastball.

Needs a 3rd pitch. If we cant let him develop that in the majors because of a win now mode, then send him to the minors next year. Enough already.

Plus Mel S messed up his arm angle.

Hah

But the Yankees actually did change his mechanics from when he was the top pitching prospect in the game...."less over the top" is what I remember...

He used to sit at 93-94 with a sharp 12-6 curve. Watch any of his minor league starts in 2006/07, and when he got called up as well. Different pitcher.

This is not the same guy.
