Turns out all that beeping wasn't preparing us for the Jack Bauer-style emergence of Phil Hughes. The beeping was coming from the time bomb that is Phil Hughes's frail little body. A bomb which has now exploded.
Hughes is out until late July or August with a grade 3 ankle sprain, on top of his earlier hamstring injury.
Just in case you didn't already think the Yankees were fucked.
UPDATE: Will Carroll is reporting that Hughes won't be able to resume throwing for 8-10 weeks, and is out until late August. I really don't care for Will Carroll right now.
