Phil Hughes To Start Season On The DL

Joe Girardi has confimed what many of us felt would happen, which is that Phil Hughes will start the season on the DL. This means that the starting rotation on Opening Day will consist of Ivan Nova and David Phelps, instead of the original plan of starting one, and the other going to the bullpen as in the long relief role.

Speaking of plans, it was said before that while Hughes would likely open the season on the DL, he'd still make his first scheduled start on April 6th. However, that may not happen anymore, as the Yankees are thinking of giving Hughes a couple more minor league starts before re-joining the Yankees. That means Philthy may not make his 2013 MLB debut until April 11th.
