Phil Hughes Finally Found the Right Breaking Balls

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 […]

Phil Hughes Tries To Catch Invisible Liner On Double To Left-Center (GIF)

Minnesota Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes was this close to snaring a liner that was hit nowhere near him Wednesday night.

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.
