Mussina Prepared To Play Mentor

It’s Day 2 of Camp Girardi, and the pitchers appear resigned to the fact that they’re going to have to do more running this spring than they have in the past.

Other than that, it’s business as usual. Phil Hughes will throw his first bullpen session today, lining up with Mariano Rivera and some other relievers. Hughes arrived at Legends Field today to find his locker occupied by Billy Traber.

Hughes’ locker had been moved about 10 feet away, next to Mike Mussina and Ian Kennedy. It seems the move was Mussina’s idea, as the veteran is apparently taking to the role of mentor for the young pitchers.

“If I’m going to sit there and talk to Kennedy about pitching, it makes sense to have Hughes there, too,” Mussina said.
