Joe Girardi confirmed yesterday that Phil Hughes will make two more rehab starts, probably one at Double-A Trenton and one at Triple-A Scranton, after which — assuming everything goes well — he could be back with the Yankees before the All-Star break.
Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.
Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.
Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
