Phil Hughes Hurts Back On Fielding Drills
Phil Hughes is expected to miss a few days after hurting his back while covering first base in a fielding drill yesterday at Yankees Spring Training camp. This is an upper back injury, more near the shoulder blades then anything, rather than a lower back injury which is good because those are usually more minor than the lower back injuries. Hughes was immediately sent to see team doctors as a precaution and will rest it now in hopes of it not flaring up again. Hughes is ahead of schedule already and it is early in camp if you are looking for a bright side here but let's all hope that this is nothing serious.
