Phil Hughes will most likely get the start Tuesday night in Detroit in place of Chien-Ming Wang who has been placed on the 15-day DL (see previous posting.)

Hughes is 3-0 with an ERA of 1.86 for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre and seems ready for the pressure of the big leagues this time around.  He had a decent spring training, but was left off the roster due to the additions of CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett, as well as the re-signing of Andy Pettitte.
