You can never have enough pitching.

It's an old phrase you will hear just about everyone in baseball utter at one point or another in a season.

And up until this past week, the New York Yankees' starting rotation seemed to be just fine.

However, in wake of the bulging disc in Phil Hughes back, which will require him to sit out at least two weeks, the Yankees may be looking around for pitching depth, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Right now, it's just two weeks that the Yankees want to give Hughes a lay-off from baseball, but what if the injury gets worse? Hughes is slated to be the Yankees' No. 4 starter in 2013.
