PHIL HUGHES RUMORS & GOSSIP
MINNEAPOLIS -- Not even a cracked fingernail can slow Phil Hughes down.
The Twins right-hander has looked the part of a staff ace this month, continuing with another solid performance in Thursday's series finale against Cleveland. Hughes allowed just one run in seven innings while striking out eight Indians in Minnesota's 4-1 victory.
During the game, though, a fingernail...
While Phil Hughes has pitched very well for the Minnesota Twins of late, Cleveland's Corey Kluber has been even better.
Looking to win a seventh straight decision Thursday, Kluber can help the Indians to a road series sweep by preventing Hughes from improving to 4-0 in as many starts this month.
Among the major league leaders in ERA, Kluber (13-6, 2.41 ERA) is 6-0 with a 1.31...

Last year was a tough one for Phil Hughes. Worse than that. “Last year was a disaster for me,” Hughes admitted to me before a August game with the A’s in Oakland. But this year has been much better. He’s top fifteen in strikeouts minus walks, a pretty solid (if simple) way to measure starting […]
MINNEAPOLIS -- A trend emerged for Twins right-hander Phil Hughes through four innings Tuesday against San Diego.
The leadoff batter of each inning couldn't help but stand there and watch as strike three from Hughes crossed home plate. Padres batters Everth Cabrera, Jedd Gyorko, Chris Nelson and Tommy Medica all fell victim as Hughes racked up a season-high nine strikeouts, five...

Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes was this close to snaring a liner that was hit nowhere near him Wednesday night.
During the bottom of the sixth inning, Kansas City Royals slugger Salvador Perez roped a double into left-center field, which was obvious to everyone at Kauffman Stadium except for Hughes.
The right-hander saw a completely different scenario go down as he...
On Wednesday night, Phil Hughes was caught looking more than a little silly.
What we have here, is Phil Hughes trying to catch an invisible baseball. And, you know what? I think he snagged it.

It’s unclear exactly what Minnesota Twins starting pitcher was trying to accomplish during Thursday’s game against the Kansas City Royals, but one thing is certain: It certainly was quite weird. During the bottom of the 6th, Hughes served up a meatball to Royals catcher Sal Perez, who gladly took advantage of the pitch right down […] The post Phil Hughes loses mind, sticks...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins were already thin on starting pitching. They didn't need this to happen.
Twins starter Phil Hughes was hit in the leg by a comebacker to the mound Thursday off the bat of Chicago's Adam Dunn. It caught Hughes in the shin and forced him to leave the game after facing just one batter in the top of the fourth inning. There were no broken bones...
