Update: Phil Hughes going for tests
Instead of going for an MRI, team physician Dr. Chris Ahmad will send Phil Hughes for a full body scan due to concerns that the arm problem is something that isn’t structural. He wants to make sure there isn’t anything internal going on such as an aneurysm.
The cause for concern came yesterday when Hughes shut down his bullpen session after just 10-12 pitches though he did not feel any pain. His arm feels dead–like there’s nothing there.
