Few pitchers hate walking batters the way Hughes does, and he knew the walk had some implications on a little-known statistic -- one he could set a new single-season mark for by year's end.

How Friday’s rainout could cost Phil Hughes $500,000

Friday’s rainout at U.S. Cellular Field gave the Twins a chance to push back left-hander Tommy Milone’s scheduled start at least two days as he recovers from a sore neck in addition to a tired pitching shoulder.

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. 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...

Yankees cannot afford a Hughes problem again

Don’t you hate it when you are right?  Phil Hughes on the Scranton Yankees (Photo credit: Wikipedia) What about when you are over and over again? Well, once again, I will state that in this situation I would have happily accepted being wrong about Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes ability. But enough is enough.
