Hughes leaves game in 7th

John Sterling said he grimmaced and made a grunt. Sterling and "the woman" claimed that a DL stint is likely. It's all speculation, but I hope he is ok because I have him on my team. Probably not a two-starter anymore though.

Does Hughes start tonight guarantee him a spot in the rotation? If he does go on the DL, will he have a spot when he gets back, or will he go back to AAA?

I would think he goes back to AAA if Pavano comes back in about a month like we're all assuming he will and he pitches very well.

If he does in fact go on the DL, by the time he comes back the rest of the Yankee rotation will most likely be healthy. So I highly doubt he'd join the rotation even if he didn't get hurt tonight. Hughes is too good to rush and the Yankees know that as well. If the rotation is ailing as it is now though- all bets are off

Joe Torre is saying Hughes will be out at least 6 weeks

If the guy is good enough to have a no-hitter going in the seventh inning, how exactly would they be "rushing" him. I know this is the prevailing wisdom on Hughes right now, but I think he showed tonight that he's good enough and ready enough to be in the majors for good, regardless of his age or minor league experience. Maybe it's just one great game, and the injury certainly changes things, but the Yankees should be asking "what were we so worried about?"
