Keeping with tradition so far this season, The Yankees are determined to have the best DL team this year. It was announced about 20 minutes that Phil Hughes would be joining stars like Posada and A-Rod on the 15 day DL. Hughes has pitched, well lets face it, horrible this season and maybe a rest would go a long way. He only escaped the fourth inning twice this season, once in his first start of the year when he gave up two runs in 6 innings, and a second time against Baltimore when he gave up 5 in 5 innings. A good rest is what he needs.
Notes: The Yankees lost last night 6-4 after Hughes did not pitch well again. If there were any bright spots, Ross Ohlendorf pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings yesterday and the bullpen pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings in total and only allowed 3 hits. The bullpen has been a weakspot this season but they performed well last night.
