Joe Girardi just announced that Phil Hughes is going on the disabled list. The Yankees do not believe he’s hurt, they just think he’s going through a dead arm period.

He is not joining the Triple-A rotation. The Yankees want him to do a lot of long toss but not start in five days. Last night Hughes showed some early signs of velocity, then he lost it.

“It was like he ran out of gas after two innings,” Girardi said.

Sounds like Bartolo Colon is moving into the rotation for the time being.

Lance Pendleton is coming up from Scranton.
