With Wang headed to the DL - the pitcher most worthy of a starting rotation spot is . . . . Alfredo Aceves. That's why Girardi let him throw all 4 innings on Sunday. He'll get the nod next time Wang's start comes up.
That doesn't mean Hughes will not be making a return either in my view. Joba no longer goes after hitters - he's trying to out-trick hitters (curve ball on 3-2 counts?) vs. just challenging them. Hughes has found a killer instinct, Joba needs to re-find his.
So, if there's any justice in this world it shakes out like this: Wang to DL, Joba to Pen, ACE and Hughes to the starting rotation.
Minor League Peak: Shelly Dunan 21 HRs, Brackman 1-7 in AA, Igawa doing pretty fair. Austin Jackson still hitting above .300
