... from the worst start of his career?
Last Saturday, Phil Hughes lasted just 1.2 innings and allowed eight runs. If he bombs again, Wang could be taking his spot the next turn through the rotation.
Francisco Liriano is in his second season after Tommy John Surgery. He's currently 2-4 with a 5.75 ERA in 40.2 innings. Liriano's pitched just 1.2 career innings against the Yanks (no hits, no runs, one walk, one K).
Hughes has never faced Minnesota, so this could be a game where we see the hitters feeling out the starters. The Twins were high on Hughes, apparently demanding he be included in a deal for Johan Santana in the 2007-08 offseason.
