Minor league news

- To make room for Roger Clemens on the 40-man roster, Phil Hughes was moved from the 15 to the 60-day DL. Not really unexpected (what with the ankle sprain), so assuming it's retroactive to May 1 (when he pulled his hamstring), he'll come off the DL July 1. It'll probably be at least three weeks (rehabbing and making minor league starts) after that until he's back in the Bronx.

- Prilys Cuello, a highly touted Dominican prospect made his U.S. debut tonight for the Tampa Yankees (filling in because of injuries). He's projected as a middle-infielder in the mold of Robbie Cano, and becomes the second youngest player in all of Single-A baseball. He hit leadoff and went 0-4 with two strikeouts. When the injured regulars return, he's expected to get demoted to the (rookie ball) Gulf Coast League Yankees.
