CLEVELAND (AP) _ Phil Hughes is back on the mound for the New
York Yankees, activated to start against the Cleveland Indians.

The 25-year-old right-hander was taken off the 60-day disabled
list Wednesday before the Yankees concluded a three-game series in
Cleveland. He had been sidelined since April 15 with an inflamed
right shoulder.

Hughes gave up five runs in each of his three starts in April,
going 0-1 with a 13.94 ERA and complaining of a lack of strength in
his shoulder. He recently made three rehab starts in the minors,
going 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA.

New York released minor-league right-hander Kanekoa Texeira to
make room for Hughes on the roster. He had been selected off
waivers from Kansas City on May 25 and assigned to Triple-A
Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
