Phil Hughes could find himself out of the starting rotation if his performance does not improve. Hughes has given up 13 hits and eight runs in just eight innings this season.
During spring training and coming into the season, the New York Yankees and GM Brian Cashman continued to say it’s a luxury to have ‘too much’ pitching. Sure, that may be the case, but if that pitching is not performing well, it really doesn’t matter how many potential starters you have.
Entering today (Tuesday), the Yankees starting pitchers have not performed to expectations. The only starter with an ERA under 4.00 is newcomer Hiroki Kuroda. Ever he has had mixed results so far this year. After a rough first start against Tampa Bay where he gave up eight hits and six runs (four earned) in 5.2 innings, Kuroda bounced back with a nice performance against the Angels in the Yankees home opener. In that contest, Kuroda went eight shutout innings, giving up just five hits and striking out six.

Any moment he takes the field, the fans see him as an accident waiting to happen. Debuting with the Yanks in 2010, Eduardo Nunez has been somewhat of an enigma.
Touted in the minors as a defensive...
Last night at Yankee Stadium someone ran out onto the field during the Twins-Yankees game. Just as other TV networks do, the YES Network cameras did not show the jerk in action. They instead kept their focus on the Yankees, who were in the field at the time. A few seconds into the distraction they zoomed in on CC Sabathia, standing on the mound, watching security trying to catch...
It’s not the typical thing you hear after a good start, but Hiroki Kuroda told reporters on Tuesday that he needs to put his last start behind him.
“I have to turn the page on what happened,” Kuroda told Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger. “I’m glad that it happened that way, but I have to turn the page and prepare for my next start.”
Kuroda essentially meant that...

NEW YORK (AP) -- CC Sabathia shook off early trouble to get a rare April win for the Yankees and backup catcher Chris Stewart hit a go-ahead, two-run single and had three RBIs for the first time in his career to lead New York over the Minnesota Twins 8-3 Tuesday night.
