from CBC Sports -
Rookie Phil Hughes on Thursday became the seventh New York Yankees pitcher to be put on the disabled list this season.
One of baseball’s top prospects, Hughes strained a hamstring while no-hitting the hometown Texas Rangers Tuesday night.
With one out in the seventh inning, the right-hander grabbed his left leg after a pitch to Mark Teixeira. Hughes was checked by worried manager Joe Torre and the training staff, then removed in favour of Mike Myers.
Hughes, 20, is expected to miss four to six weeks of action.
In related news, Brian Cashman fired the Yanks strength and conditioning coach after four players have missed time with hamstring injuries: Wang, Matsui, Mussina and now Hughes.
