08:14 AM ET 04.15 | Phil Hughes allowed another five earned runs Thursday, and Pedro Feliciano may be done for the year. In time, 20-year-old, super prospect Manny Banuelos could be the Yankees answer for [Feliciano] ... just not yet. Banuelos, though, potentially could be the great equalizer to offset the loss of the Feliciano. With Banuelos, on an innings limit, he could arrive in the Bronx like Joba Chamberlain did in 2007 and be the lefty out of the pen. "He is not an option right now," GM Brian Cashman said. "Could he pitch for us in 2011? He could pitch for us in 2011 possibly, but he is not being considered right now." Banuelos' season was delayed as he dealt with his grandmother being sick. He has now returned to be with Double-A Trenton.

The last thing you want to do is rush a kid up even if he's a super prospect. While Huges should be a concern it's not like anyone's poised to run away with the AL east at the moment.

Not exactly the approach that will garner a lot of support for Cashman.

Is his ERA higher than Dice K's or Cliff Lee's this year?
