Phil Hughes Could Start Season On Disabled List Too

The Yankees and Joe Girardi announced that Phil Hughes is likely to start the season on the disabled list as well after fighting a back injury all spring training long. Hughes threw about 50 pitches today and has time for two more starts before his first scheduled start on April 6th, the Yankees 5th game of the season. That is the first day that a player can be activated from the disabled list that has been backdated and the back dating disabled lists start today as well conveniently. Girardi wants to make sure that Hughes can easily throw around 90 pitches in his first start so they may DL him and bring an extra bullpen guy and let the loser of the Ivan Nova/David Phelps 5th starter competition make his start.
