    Great news Brien! Who do you think is on the chopping block when Hughes comes back? Right now it looks like Nova, but would that change with a couple of good starts? And whoever does get bumped do they get sent down or do they go to the bullpen?

      If Hughes came back right now it would be Nova just because he has options left. And for that reason I'm not sure that Nova can play himself out of that spot so much as Freddy Garcia would have to play his way out of it. But barring an injury to Bartolo Colon (Mo forbid), it's going to be one of those two, obviously.

      I would imagine Garcia goes to the bullpen, unless he just starts pitching terribly, while Nova would probably go to AAA.
