It was at the height of the mango season in west Kenya that Phil Hughes saw a way to bend the future. He was a Peace Corps volunteer at the time, 10 years ago. And the mangoes were, well, awesome - creamily lush and sweet, a variety called Ngowe, indigenous to Zanzibar, reddish-yellow. They were beautiful things. Hughes is not an animated speaker. But over a salad at the Reading Terminal Market one recent afternoon, he was getting worked up recalling his days in Africa. "Most of the year you can't get mangoes.

The Yankees likely will pull out of trade talks for Johan Santana if the Twins don't make a decision by late today. "I'm not going to be played against the Red Sox. That's not something I'll do. That's not something the Yankees should ever do, and that's I think what they're trying to do now," Yankees senior vice president Hank Steinbrenner said yesterday in Nashville, Tenn., site of the winter meetings. The Yankees have proposed swapping pitcher Phil Hughes, centerfielder Melky Cabrera and a midlevel prospect for the two-time Cy Young Award winner, who can become a free agent after next season.

NEW YORK - Regardless of whether he is consumed with it or if he's able to ignore it altogether, Kyle Kendrick is auditioning each time he takes the mound in the final 2 months of the season. Scouts are obviously out and about this time of year to help their respective teams find players to help for the stretch run and postseason. But they also have an eye on players like Kendrick who will become free agents this winter. They'll watch those players, too, and file reports that will go a long way into determining whether their front office will pursue that player in November, December and January.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - The cut fastball slipped from Kyle Kendrick's right hand. Carlos Ruiz leaped from his crouch to snare it. An audible, "Whoa!" emanated Friday afternoon from the Bright House Field crowd to signal an inauspicious beginning to the most important season of Kendrick's career. "I don't think I'll walk two guys again this spring," Kendrick later declared. The 29-year-old righthander is on the precipice of free agency, and he views it as motivation for 2014. A sizable payday awaits Kendrick if he makes 30 starts this season and remains a stable force at the back of the Phillies rotation.

RAUL IBANEZ was more than happy to turn those welcome back calls of "Ra-uuul!" into a good old Bronx cheer. Ibanez again treated Yankee Stadium as his personal playground, hitting a grand slam and two-run homer last night to help the Seattle Mariners rout New York, 12-2. "I can't tell that much of a difference even though when you hear it, depending on how you're doing, you know," Ibanez said with a sly smile. Ibanez' slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.

New York Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes could be sidelined for two weeks because of a bulging disk that will be treated with anti-inflammatory medication. "I'm convinced I'll be symptom-free in the next four or five days," Hughes said Wednesday. "I felt like I was kind of ahead of the game with my throwing. I threw a bunch of bullpens before I got here, and, thankfully, it's early enough in spring. It's a setback, but I still have a lot of time to get it right.
