Hughes likely to join Jeter on DL to open season Posted on March 22, 2013 by @Jason_IIATMS This certainly seems like the place to be, doesn’t it? Phil Hughes, who will pitch in a Minor League game today, seems likely to begin the year on the DL. Girardi wouldn’t commit to it, though. — Bryan Hoch (@BryanHoch) March 22, 2013 Seems that Hughes will join his buddy Derek Jeter on the pine to start the season, at least. h/t HBT @Jason_IIATMSIIATMS overlord and founder.
