Hughes start pushed back a day

Phil Hughes will not pitch this weekend after all.

His start has been pushed back a day so that Andy Pettitte will start Sunday’s series finale against the Orioles. The change lets Hughes face a weaker White Sox team on Monday, and lets Pettitte face a team the Yankees need to beat to move up in the wild card race.

In two previous starts against Baltimore this season, Hughes had a 7.00 ERA and a 2.00 WHIP. He’d allowed five Orioles home runs in 14 innings. He has not faced the White Sox this season, but the White Sox have hit the third-fewest home runs in the American League (the Yankees, by the way, have the second-fewest).
