After viewing much of his campaign as a disappointment, Phil Hughes has come out firing in the Arizona Fall League, looking to set an early tone for what he hopes will be the beginning of a rebound season.

The 22-year-old Hughes has pitched well in his first two starts for the Peoria Javelinas, limiting opponents to one run — a solo homer — and five hits in 10 innings (0.90 ERA).

Hughes has walked six and struck out 10 in his two AFL outings, logging a win in the Javelinas’ 10-3 Opening Day victory on Oct. 7. Hughes also pitched five innings of four-hit ball on Monday in a no-decision against the Phoenix Desert Dogs, the day he was named the AFL’s first Pitcher of the Week of 2008.
