Updates on the rehabbers

Phil Hughes started for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre tonight. He allowed an earned run on three hits over 4 2/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two as well.

Via Dan Graziano, here is what a scout on hand had to say:

A scout who's here tonight said the scoreboard radar gun at this park can fluctuate unreliably. According to this guy's gun, Hughes' fastball was in the 94-95 mph range in the first three innings and then in the 91-93 range thereafter. The scout also said Hughes' curveball looked good, and that his slider sometimes looked a little more like a cutter, which he speculated was probably unintentional and a result of rust.
Hughes threw 68 pitches (40 strikes) so he'll have to extend himself a little further before he can rejoin the Yankees.

Carl Pavano was also rehabbing tonight, making a start for Double-A Trenton. In 3 2/3 innings, Pavano allowed only one hit and no runs while striking out four and walking two.
