Phil Hughes Shows Improvement in Spring Debut

his first outing this Spring, Phil Hughes looked closer to his 2010 form. After dropping some weight, Hughes was hitting 92-93 on the gun, according to scouts.

Now I know it's only one start, but in his case, this is a big step forward. After being an All-Star in 2010, Hughes had a terrible 2011, and his future was often in doubt. He isn't out of the dark yet, but he can definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel.
