Hughes Joins DL Party

Joining Posada and A-Rod, Phil Hughes was placed on the disabled list tonight with a strained oblique muscle and/or ribcage.

No corresponding announcement of Sunday's starter against the Mariners has been announced though Darrell Rasner appears to be the obvious choice as he has an ERA under 1.00 at AAA in 2008:
The Yankees just announced that Phil Hughes has gone on the disabled list with a right oblique strain. Oblique muscles are near the rib cage.
Guess the Yankees can sidestep the debate of whether or not Hughes should be sent down to AAA. The conspiracy theorists have their hands full with this one, right?
