I’ll have my postgame notes from a huge win coming soon, but there is some news to announce from Joe Girardi’s press conference. He told reporters that Phil Hughes is being pulled from the rotation in favor of David Huff. Huff will start on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox.

“We’re going to move Hughes to the bullpen and Huff will start on Saturday,” Girardi said. “It’s been an up-and-down year for Phil, and Huff has been throwing the ball well. We’re just going to make the change.”
