Morning Bits: Recap, Robinson, Chan Ho, Hughes
Here are a few quick items on the morning:
- Thanks to a strong outing from Phil Hughes, the Yankees beat the Angels last night, 6-2.
- Robinson Cano also contributed, going 2-for-4 with 2 home runs on Jackie Robinson Day.
- While warming up last night, Chan Ho Park hurt his hamstring and will be reevaluated today.
- Was Phil Hughes getting squeezed yesterday? It appears so given PitchFX data (props, RAB).
Hughes didn’t get many calls low in the zone. That could help to explain the 5 walks he issued.
