Just about everyone seems to be picking Phil Hughes to be the New York Yankees' breakout player.  

Hughes has made great strides since having dead arm troubles last season.  He was an All-Star in 2010, when he went 18-8, and is looking to reach that status again.

Last season, Hughes showed up out of shape and with an arm that couldn't hit 90 mph.  He was shut down with a dead arm after three miserable outings.  Hughes came back and slowly started getting back to form.

In the offseason, he continued to work to get back to his 2010 form.  This spring, he showed up in shape and demonstrated to everyone why he was once the Yankees' top pitching prospect.

Hughes is looking to capitalize on his success in spring training and be the Yankees' No. 2 pitcher.  If he can do that, then he'll be an All-Star in 2012 for sure.  

Here's how and why he'll do it.
