Phil Hughes close to throwing off mound
Hughes made 25 throws from 60 and 90 feet during his third level ground throwing session on Wednesday. He is set to add 10 pitches off a mound on Saturday and follow that with a 25-pitch bullpen session Sunday or Monday.
Hughes says he is experiencing ''no problems,'' and feels ''good.''
Hughes was hurt Feb. 18 during a defensive drill in Spring Training. The right-hander went 16-13 with 4.23 ERA in 32 starts for the Yankees last season.
