Can Bailey be far behind?The New York Yankees said Monday they plan on having top pitching prospect Phil Hughes make his major league debut Thursday against Toronto. Yankees manager Joe Torre didn't rule out that the 20-year-old right-hander, taken in the first round of the 2004 amateur draft, might make more than one start. "If we're comfortable and we sense he's comfortable, we'll see what we do," Torre said before the Yankees played Tampa Bay. Hughes is 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in three starts this season at Triple-A Scranton, and he pitched six shutout innings last Wednesday at Syracuse, allowing two hits, striking out 10 and walking none.
