NEW YORK (WFAN) - Phil Hughes has been placed on the disabled list.

“We just feel like he’s going through a dead arm period,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “We don’t feel that he’s hurt.”

There are no tests planned for Hughes.

RHP Lance Pendleton will take his place on roster.

In his brief career in the rotation, Hughes has not been able to limit his mistakes at home. Last season, his first full year as a starter, Hughes tied for the major league lead for homers allowed at home with 20.

Hughes’ struggles have carried over to this season and after being as bad in the ALCS as Chien-Ming Wang was in the 2007 ALDS against the Indians, he’s actually been worse in his two regular season starts this year, according to Neil Keefe.

Two starts against Rangers in ALCS: 0-2, 8.2 IP, 14 H, 11 R, 11 ER, 1 HR, 7 BB, 6 K, 11.42 ERA

Two starts this season: 0-1, 6.0 IP, 12 H, 11 R, 11 ER, 4 BB, 1 K, 3 HR, 16.50 ERA

After striking out 146 in 176 1/3 innings last season, Hughes has struck out just one of the 33 batters he has faced this season thanks to a loss in velocity and inability to locate.
