Update 10:20 - From

Phil Hughes:
"I was a little tentative in the first inning, but that's to be expected," said Hughes, who threw 20 of 36 pitches for strikes and had his fastball reach 94 mph. "The second inning I felt a lot more comfortable. I was kind of letting it go and not really thinking about landing as much on my front foot or anything like that." Hughes will next pitch for Double-A Trenton on Tuesday.
