Update on The Messiah

From Pending Pinstripes comes some very good news on Phil Hughes -

Phil Hughes, also rehabbing, outpitched Pavano, giving up just a hit and a walk in 3 2/3 dominant innings, and striking out 5.  He looks ready to move up to high-A or AA, though they Yankees will take it slow with him.  Hughes was apparently throwing very hard, hitting 101 on what must have been a very juiced gun.  More likely, he was hitting 95 or so, which is not too shabby for his 2nd rehab outing of the season.

A dominant performance with velocity that we haven't seen in a while - as Monty Burns would say, excellent.
