Mazzeo reports that Hughes’ fastball was clocked as high as 94 miles per hour and topped 91 miles per hour 48 times, which is a big change from the 89.3 miles per hour he averaged prior to being shut down in mid-April with arm problems.
General manager Brian Cashman and other members of the Yankees’ front office were on hand for the performance, which included eight strikeouts and 20 swinging strikes. He’s scheduled to start next week at Triple-A and another impressive outing could get him back into the Yankees’ second-half plans.
