Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes is moving to the bullpen while David Huff takes over his rotation spot -- getting the start Saturday against the Red Sox -- manager Joe Girardi told reporters Tuesday (Andy McCullough).

Huff, 29, is 2-0 with a 1.13 ERA, 0.88 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 16 innings this season for the Yankees. He began the season with the Indians but was claimed off waivers by the Yankees May 25. In his career, he's 17-26 with a 5.41 ERA as a starter.

Hughes, 27, is 4-13 with a 4.86 ERA and 1.41 WHIP this season. In August, he went 0-4 with a 6.46 ERA.

The Yankees moved to 74-64 after Tuesday's victory and now boast the best record among teams not in the current playoff picture.
