Yankees_Phil_Hughes_2 [1]Last week the New York Yankees sounded ready to dump Phil Hughes from the rotation following another poor start and sure enough the team announced that he’s been moved to the bullpen.

Initially the plan was to bump Hughes’ next scheduled start back, but manager Joe Girardi has decided to replace him in the rotation with David Huff, explaining to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York: “It’s been [an] up-and-down year for Phil and Huff’s been throwing the ball well, and we are just going to make the change.”
