This. Joba is slowly but steadily pitching his way out of the rotation and back to the pen. The Yanks can't afford to keep trotting this guy out if he does not improve on for instance his last three starts ... gave up 9 hits in 5.1, 3.2 and 4.1 IP. That's 27 hits in 12.4 IP.
Remember Joba was freaking solid out of the pen last year. The Yanks must be thinking about returning him to where he he's a proven contributor.
If it's back to the pen for Joba, Hughes has got to be a candidate to return to the rotation. Aceves did nothing to impress in his spot start last week. Mitre, maybe. I wouldn't be surprised if it's Hughes.
