Hughes faces second day of tests

NEW YORK -- Phil Hughes underwent two hours' worth of medical tests Tuesday, as the Yankees seek an answer for his missing velocity.

He faces more tests Wednesday.

Hughes had MRI exams Tuesday on both his right elbow and right shoulder, and doctors also tested his circulation.

"We're getting as many tests done as possible, so we have as much information as we can gather," said Hughes, who was put on the disabled list on April 15 with what the Yankees described as a "dead arm."

Hughes' velocity has been down since spring training, but he didn't have an obvious injury. The Yankees first believed that he needed to build arm strength, but when Hughes had to shut down a bullpen session on Monday, they decided to explore whether there's a medical reason for the lost strength.

"Obviously, something isn't working," said Hughes, who seemed surprisingly relaxed as he talked about the tests.

Hughes went 18-8 for the Yankees last year. He was 0-1 with a 13.94 ERA in three starts before going on the DL.

"It's hard to replace 18 wins," manager Joe Girardi said.

Bartolo Colon took Hughes' place in the rotation, but the Yankees are short on rotation depth. They face a decision this week with Kevin Millwood, who has been pitching in the minor leagues but can get out of his contract if the Yankees don't promote him to the big leagues.
