Phil Hughes loses mind, sticks out glove to catch rocket gapper to left-center (GIF)

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.

Minnesota Twins: Why Phil Hughes has been the biggest surprise

Phil Hughes As the Minnesota Twins continue to struggle defensively on the mound, and very recently in the field, there’s not much to look for through the grapevine. The pitching staff is 32-35. Only six of the overall 16-man roster has winning records, and three have ERA’s lower than .300 (Matt Guerrier at 2.81, Glen Perkins at 2.76 and Casey Fien at 2.17). However, there have...

Pay Attention to Phil Hughes

Phil Hughes debuted for the New York Yankees in 2007, as a 21 year old, making 13 starts that season.  He even had a no-hitter heading into the 7th inning of a game against the Texas Rangers, but had to leave due to a hamstring injury.  His first full season as a starter wouldn't come until 2010, and it looked as if Hughes was going to be a big part of the next gen in Bronx baseball...

Twins' Hughes earns win in first game back at Yankee Stadium

Hughes continues torrid stretch, spurs Twins win vs. Padres

Twins pitcher Phil Hughes was hoping to pick up his first career big-league hit Wednesday against San Diego. After going hitless at the plate, Hughes will instead have to settle for his fifth win of the year.

Twins' Hughes has things under control

Even during his time pitching in the bandbox that is Yankee Stadium, Phil Hughes has always been a flyball pitcher. That was exemplified in Hughes' last outing Thursday against Boston, in which he recorded zero groundball outs in six innings of work as the Twins won 4-3 in the series finale. Hughes has seemingly gotten comfortable with the dimensions of Target Field -- known as a...
