Ogando moving to the bullpen is not a sure thing as of yet, and if he stays in the rotation I like him as a source of good ratios and potentially wins. However, if he does move to the pen he is pretty much useless to me. Edwin Jackson was just dropped today. Should I swap out Ogando for Jackson?
Huges is also another guy I've been looking at. He was terrible last year, but all accounts are that his fastball is back and he's in shape. I gotta think given his age and potential, the Yanks will give him the 5th spot in the rotation. He could be a 15+ game winner again.

I would probably keep Ogando and wait it out a bit but if you want to pick up more of a sure thing I would go with Hughes. I am not a big Jackson fan and I think you are right that if Hughes gets the 5th spot in the rotation he could be big.
I like Jackson this year. He will play for a good team in the NL plus he has a lot of motivation as he didn't get the long-term deal he was hoping he would get. So now he gets another season to prove to everyone what he can do. I like him more than Ogando or Hughes.
