Hughes made 25 throws from 60 and 90 feet during his third level-ground throwing session Wednesday. He is set to add 10 pitches off a mound on Saturday and follow that with a 25-pitch bullpen session Sunday or Monday.
Hughes says he is experiencing "no problems," and feels "good."
Hughes was hurt Feb. 18 during a defensive drill in spring training. The right-hander went 16-13 with 4.23 ERA in 32 starts for the Yankees last season.
