CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -Yankees right-hander Jeff Karstens threw 3 1-3 scoreless innings Saturday in his first minor league rehab start since breaking his right leg two months ago.
Karstens allowed three hits, one walk and struck out two in the Gulf Coast League game against Philadelphia minor leaguers. He is scheduled to join Class-A Staten Island for his next start.
``It was good,'' said Karstens, who threw 32 of 48 pitches for strikes. ``It's been two months. I'm just happy to be out there again.''
Karstens was hurt April 28 in a game against Boston. On his first pitch, he was hit on the side of his knee by Julio Lugo's liner.
Phil Hughes is scheduled to make his first rehab start Monday for Class-A Tampa.
Hughes has been sidelined by ankle and hamstring injuries. He hurt his left ankle May 25 while doing an agility drill during a rehab program for a strained left hamstring. The hamstring injury occurred May 1 while Hughes was working on a no-hit bid during the seventh inning against Texas in his second major league start.
