Hughes, Robertson Recalled September 14, 2008Posted by Pablo Zevallos in David Robertson, Phil Hughes, Sidney Ponson.
After his dominating performance, RHP Phil Hughes was recalled yesterday and will start on Wednesday against Chicago. This move was done at the right time, as Hughes, after two ghastly outings at AAA, has settled into an awesome rhythym and this was very much earned. Robertson’s struggles continued a bit, even allowing his first homerun in the minors, but made an adjustment in his mechanics and settled into a nice groove letter in the playoffs.
Hopefully Hughes replaces Sidney Ponson, who, since joining the Yankees, has posted ugly numbers–6.71 ERA, 1.70 WHIP, 0.91K/BB rate. Just go! Leave! Bye!!!
