SI_JonHeyman: Joba is out of #yanks rotation derby. RT @JackCurryYES: No Joba-Hughes showdown Mon. Hughes will face Phils. Joba will work intrasquad game
Looking across the internet thus far Heyman is the only one making this statement. Based on the tweet, there’s really no reason to find this to be a fact. Perhaps he simply read the tweet wrong(as pointed out in the comments section).
Keeping in mind the performances of potential fifth starters this Spring Training, the debates can begin whether or not this is true. When more sources have stated whether this statement is true or false, I’ll believe it.
It’s certainly a bold statement if it’s false, at least for Yankees fans, but we’ve seen this from Heyman before. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated on the issue.
