Newsday: Hughes throws 'filthy stuff'
by SG

If Phil Hughes was even a tad nervous about throwing batting practice to the Yankees' major-leaguers in front of manager Joe Torre and company, it sure didn't show.

The 20-year-old Yankees prospect took the mound at Legends Field yesterday with a calm and determined look and delivered pitches that looked very much like major-league quality.

"We could have used him last year," Jason Giambi said.

Facing Giambi, Hideki Matsui, Todd Pratt and Raul Chavez, Hughes showed off his impressive repertoire, allowing only two of his 34 pitches to be hit into fair territory.

Hughes is turning into the story of camp so far.
