Phil Hughes is Getting Closer

His line in Scranton last night: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 2K, 9-3 GB-FB. Beyond that line, Hughes said that he felt "real good." Apparently he had good command of his fastball and cutter (!), and will throw 85 pitches in Scranton on Tuesday. If he pitches well and feels good, his next start could be in the big leagues.
