&#8226 New York Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes, perhaps hurling for his rotation spot with Ivan Nova lurking, tossed six shutout innings Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox. Hughes allowed three singles and issued nary a walk, and in his five starts during the past month, only one was bad. Still, this is not the same strikeouts option from 2010. Tread carefully.
