Joe Girardi had hinted earlier that he had some news regarding changes to the pitching rotation this weekend. Now, we know what they are.
Because of yesterday’s off-day, Phil Hughes‘ next start will be Monday against the White Sox instead of on Sunday against the Orioles. Andy Pettitte, who was on the schedule as Monday’s starter will now be pitching on Sunday on regular rest.
Personally, this is great news for me because I’m going to Sunday’s game and I wanted the Yankees to have a chance to win and not have to watch as Phil Hughes gives up a 500-foot home runs to Chris Davis.
