Hughes' First Start To Be April 15

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Phil Hughes' first start of 2010 won't come until the end of the second week of the season. Because of the off days early in the Yankees schedule, they can afford to use a four-man rotation for the first time around this year. Hughes will pitch an extended spring training game on April 5, and another extended spring training game on April 10 before he makes his first start of the regular season on April 15 against the Angels of somewhere in California. The Yankees are doing this because a.) the schedule, and b.) it limits Hughes' innings.

Check back tomorrow for our 2010 outfield projections.
