    Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    And if real, why did the Yankees wait till tonight's seventh inning to announce it?

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    I don't know, but it's definitely quite strange. I'm sure the decision was reached before the game, since Girardi and Hughes are on the bench, and I'd imagine that they would have been consulted regarding the decision. I can't see any big benefit from announcing it now rather than before the game.

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    I'm torn (no pun intended). I think it might explain his struggles, but it's also a convenient excuse to give him time off.

    What I'm really saying is I don't know.

    Maybe they figured they could sneak it out under the wire so to speak.
    Maybe this is a real injury, he could have been trying to suck it up and could explain the suckitude.
    Maybe the silver lining is that this was caused by the "new mechanics" and they will revert him back to what worked in Sept last year.

    Is it retroactive to yesterday?

    No details yet. Watch this space (a repurposed "Hughes staying in the rotation for now" story that will surely be updated soon):

    Yankees place Hughes on 15-day DL

    I'm not sure. They just said he went on the DL.

    I am inclined to say it's not, but I am definitely not 100 percent sure.

    Not possible, since he pitched yesterday, I think. Can't it only be retroactive to the first game missed?

    Yeah, I believe that's right. I didn't even think of that.

    Obviously I don't know but I don't think it's true.

    Maybe someone should start a new thread for people to guess when the DL appearance starts!

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    I'm thinking now that maybe they waited until late in tonight's game, with the Yankees trailing by three, just especially so people would stick around for all of this tedious game and then watch the postgame show.

    They'll probably wait till 45 minutes into the postgame show before they interview Girardi or Cash.

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    Since the second it came out I thought it was a a lie. Think about it- the Yankees don't have to send him down, and it implies that at least some of his poor performance is related to an injury.

    The way they've handled Hughes has been a disaster.

    very clever way to send the kid down on minor league "rehab" assignment.

    He's not injured. Goes on the DL, so they can bring someone up without sending someone down.

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    What if he is injured, though? An oblique injury sucks. I hope it isnt a real injury, but with his history i wouldnt bank on it.

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    This injury is complete BS.

    Come on now.

    It gives the public a reason to think that's why he sucked. It's also helps Cashman not look like an idiot thus far for not pulling off the Santana trade. All while Phil will now get to go to the minors without embarassment.

    I'll pretend nothing happened if he comes back & pitches like Phil Hughes. Not this guy that looks like him.

    Re: Hughes to the DL: Real oblique injury or no?

    The medic department strikes again, maybe they can put Giambi in the DL if he isn't improve in the next games.

    How many players we can have in the DL?(starting to thinking in the worst case scenario)
