Phil Hughes,  RHP  (3-3,  4.91)

Hughes was solid in his lone start against the Orioles on 8/15 (5 IP, 2 ER).  After a rough go of it for a few weeks, Hughes has pitched very well his last 2 starts (1-0, 2.25 ERA).

Cabrera is a guy that the Yanks seem to clobber or can't hit at all (3-4, 3.90 ERA in 11 starts) and has had pretty good success against the Yanks in 2007 (1-1, 3.79 ERA in 3 starts).  He has been downright atrocious in his last 5 starts (0-4, 8.28 ERA).

Historically, the vast majority of Yankee hitters have not hit Cabrera for some unknown reason.

Lifetime numbers vs. Cabrera:

A-Rod:  .375 (9-24, 2 HR)  Matsui:  .370 (10-27)  Jeter:  .240 (6-25)  Cano:  .167 (3-18)  Damon:  .167 (3-18)  Abreu:  .167 (2-12)  Posada:  .125 (2-16)
