Yankees activate Hughes, send Eppley to minors
To make room on the roster, the Yankees sent right-handed reliever Cody Eppley to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
Hughes originally was scheduled to start for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, but had his outing shifted to Detroit. While on the DL with a back injury, he pitched seven scoreless innings Monday in an extended spring training game in Tampa, Fla.
In two appearances this season, Eppley gave up four runs over 1 2-3 innings and had a 21.60 ERA.
