Girardi on Hughes: 'We'll see how it goes'

TORONTO -- There has been speculation that right-hander Phil Hughes might be skipped or removed from the Yankees' rotation, but manager Joe Girardi was not prepared to announce any changes to his rotation on Tuesday.

"We'll see -- we'll see how it goes," Girardi said. "We'll see what happens, make sure people are OK and see what we do."

Hughes absorbed another rough outing on Monday, allowing five runs (three earned) in 4 2/3 innings while taking the loss in a 5-2 defeat to the Blue Jays. Hughes said that he is not concerned about his job security.

"I don't think about those things," Hughes said. "I worry about what I can do every day I'm given the ball. Those types of things aren't really a concern for me."

Pitching coach Larry Rothschild and the Yankees have been trying to correct several issues with Hughes, who is 2-11 with a 5.12 ERA since May 15.

"For Phil, sometimes it's putting hitters away," Girardi said. "Sometimes it's his fastball coming back, getting too much of the plate. He's a fastball guy -- that's who he is -- but your location becomes very important when you're like that."
