Phil Hughes needs a good start. With Michael Pineda knocking on the door, and David Phelps and Ivan Nova pitching well, the team has plenty of options to if Hughes continues to struggle. Though Girardi refused to say that Hughes was on the hot seat, he did say that today's start was "important". Against the Rangers' offense, it'll be no easy task to keep the ball in the park.
Meanwhile, the Yankees' lineup faces off against Derek Holland, who's having a phenomenal year.
The game starts at 1:05 PM. You can catch it on YES or the MLB Network.
