Yankees bump Hughes, will start Moseley

The Yankees have changed their rotation in the series. Phil Hughes, the scheduled starter for Sunday night, was bumped to next Wednesday as Joe Girardi wants to cut back his innings before the playoffs.

The Yankees will instead pitch Dustin Moseley (4-3, 4.94) against Daisuke Matsuzaka.

CC Sabathia, who pitched last night, won’t pitch again until Friday at Fenway Park. That will set him up to start Game 1 of the ALDS. Obviously the Yankees are forgoing the division in favor of setting up their pitching, which makes sense.

Dice-K against Moseley on Sunday night. Meanwhile ESPN will be going up against Jets-Dolphins on NBC.
