Phil Hughes' stiff back is not stiff anymore.

Hughes said he could be available out of the bullpen as soon as Game 4 on Thursday.

"I feel I could," Hughes said.

Hughes left Game 3 in the fourth inning after Joe Girardi and Larry Rothschild did not like how Hughes looked in his delivery. Hughes said he could have stayed in but his breaking stuff was impacted by the stiff back. Now, he says he is fine.
