Hughes Out Until August?
Sore Shoulder For Cox

According to, Phil Hughes may not return to the big leagues until early August:
Right-hander Phil Hughes is expected to be examined this week and his timetable for a big league return has been pushed back to early August.
Tough break for Hughes. The other Yankees beat reporters have yet to collaborate Bryan Hoch's report, so this may simply be a tentative date to shoot for. Until Yankees brass or other writers support the report I'll assume Hughes will be ready sometime in July.

Update on JB Cox: he was placed on the seven-day DL with shoulder soreness according to Chad Jennings. There's no word on how long he will be out or how severe the injury may be. Jennings did confirm that the injury was "not related to his elbow or his Tommy John surgery."
