I recorded my thoughts on this earlier. RAB mirrors my opinion. Until the innings limit is lifted from Hughes this doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and may potentially lock Joba into a relief role. Stay tuned.

RAB is reporting that the Yankees are set to announce that Phil Hughes will be the team's fifth starter at the beginning of the season. Meanwhile, they report this will send Joba to the pen at the season's beginning.
