Act I: Phil-Joba analysis

First, here are their pitching lines:

Phil Hughes: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 HR
Joba Chamberlain: 1.1 IP, 3 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 1 K

I’d say it’s pretty clear Hughes is the fifth starter at this point of spring…

But seriously, Hughes looked good and Chamberlain had an excuse. Hughes threw some nice changeups and gave up a wind-blown homer, and Chamberlain had been throwing up for a couple days prior to the start.

Girardi said in an in-game interview he was pleased with Hughes and expects to see a much better Chamberlain in his next outing.
