PHIL HUGHES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Daily Pitcher Duels: Aug. 9

There isn’t really a standout pitchers duel on this baseball Sunday, but there are plenty of individual aces in action. Check ’em out: Phil Hughes (MIN) vs. Corey Kluber (CLE) 1:10 p.m. ET It’s certainly true that last year was better to both of these pitchers, but that isn’t to say that 2015 has resulted in lost seasons for these guys either. Hughes has managed a...

Hughes on verge of rare turnaround

Phil Hughes can do something Thursday night that hasn't been done in 10 years. Hughes was 0-4 in April, but has a chance to win his 10th game when the Minnesota Twins host the Seattle Mariners. No pitcher has been 0-4 (or worse) and then reached 10 wins by the end of July since Barry Zito did it in 2005 with the Oakland A's. Zito was also 0-4 in April that season and just happened...

Both Sides of the Phil Hughes Argument

So much of the analysis we do in baseball follows a pretty simple formula. We notice a player is getting different results, we look for explanations for the change, and then we speculate about whether the latter caused the former and if it will continue. Baseball includes so much random variation and you have to […]

Phil Hughes turns down $500K bonus offer from Twins

As we near the end of Major League Baseball’s regular season, incentive bonuses in player contracts are coming into play with only a few games remaining. In the case of Minnesota Twins pitcher Phil Hughes, his 2014 season comes to an end agonizingly short of an additional $500,000. Hughes was to receive the half million […]

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...

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...

Twins' Hughes bested by last-place Astros

MINNEAPOLIS -- It turns out the only team that can slow down Phil Hughes is . . . the last-place Houston Astros.

He allowed a season-high five runs -- including three homers, also the most he's given up this year -- as Minnesota lost 5-4 to the visiting Astros in Friday's series...

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

In what was a forgettable season with the Yankees in 2013, Phil Hughes won just one game all year at Yankee Stadium. He now has his first win there as a visitor. After going eight innings in his longest outing of the year, Hughes was rewarded with a six-run ninth inning by Minnesota's offense in the Twins' 7-2 win to give Hughes a victory in his old stomping grounds. Hughes spent...
