Recap of the day in Tampa

According to Peter Abraham, Andy Pettitte and Phil Hughes threw live batting practice today.

Although Pettitte has a great pickoff move, he was working on a slide step.

On the Hughes front, Abraham called him "terrific." It's tough to judge the pitchers against the hitters just yet, as the hitters have only been facing live pitching for four days. Hughes has been in Tampa for over a month.

However, it's great to see the Hughes is back on track. After coming back from injury last season, he struggled until September. I am expecting big things from Hughes this year. Hughes has said that he finally has his curveball back. It was devastating when he was healthy, so this is a great sign.

Looking ahead, the intrasquad game is on Wednesday and then they face the University of South Florida on Friday.
