[Phil] Hughes, on the disabled list with a fractured rib, had his eyes examined and will wear glasses when he pitches. He has been bothered by glare during night games and has had trouble picking up signs from his catcher. Hughes said he is slightly nearsighted.
Knowing that the lights are not that great in some minor league parks, it’s interesting that this issue never came up before for Hughes. But, hey, better late than never on the correction, right?
