Minor setback for Hughes

Phil Hughes complained of a stiff upper back today, behind the pitching shoulder. Hopefully it has nothing to do with the shoulder but in the back. He complained of it after taking fielding practice in which the pitchers cover first.

Mgr. Girardi said it’ll be a few days, but noted that Hughes was ahead of schedule.

Hopefully it is a minor issue and will just be a few days.

Colleague George King tells me Phil Hughes has a bulging disc in upper mid back. Will take anti-inflams/shut down at least 5 days #Yankees

What bothers me is that Hughes had to leave that ALCS game with a problem. Is this going to be a chronic issue?

Update II: Yanks will shut down Hughes for 2 wks.
