The continued disappointment of Phil Hughes

The continued disappointment of Phil Hughes

Phil Hughes has struggled mightily since his career year in 2014, and there’s more bad news now that his season is likely over due to the return of his thoracic outlet syndrome issues. It’s been a bit of a roller coaster for the Twins and Phil Hughes. After spending a tumultuous seven years in New York as a member of the Yankees, the Twins signed Hughes to a 3-year, $24 million contract. Though it was panned by many because Hughes had been an inconsistent starting pitcher up to that point, it really wasn’t an outrageous contract for a guy that was meant to simply eat innings for a...

Twins Roster Moves: Bartolo Colon officially added, Phil Hughes to 60-day DL, Craig Breslow activated

It’s happening. By now you’ve probably heard at least a billion times that the Twins plan to start the recently-signed Bartolo Colon Tuesday night against the Yankees. Despite Colon struggling this year with the Braves (he had an 8.14 ERA over 63 innings before he was released), and struggling in his only Triple-A start with the Rochester Red Wings last week, the Twins are going to do this. And to do this, the Twins have to officially add Colon to the big league roster, which they did today. This is really happening. Some had speculated that the Twins would make space for Colon by...

Royals 6, Twins 2: Twins bats can’t beat Wood

The Royals handed the Twins their first losing road trip of the year. Hector Santiago started the day ok, allowing just 1 hit through the first two innings, but disaster struck in the third. Alex Gordon got hit by a pitch, then Whit Merrifield doubled him in. With 2 outs, Eric Hosmer hit an RBI double to score Merrifield, and Salvador Perez hit an RBI single to put the Royals up 3-0. Santiago came out for the 4th but a walk and an out later, he was relieved by Phil Hughes out of the pen. He gave up a double and a single, both scoring a run to push the deficit to 5. Some relief that was,...

Craig Breslow placed on 10-day DL, Phil Hughes activated

The game of musical chairs in the Twins bullpen continues, since Phil Hughes is a reliever now. Craig Breslow tried to reinvent himself this off-season using technology and a new arm slot. It won him a job with the Minnesota Twins, but apparently it did not last. The Twins released Breslow today. Just kidding! A bunch of people thought the Twins got rid of Breslow because his name wasn’t on the lineup card for today’s game, but he’s actually just hurt. What kind of hurt? According to Phil Miller of the Star Tribune, it’s “rib-cage soreness”. According to Mike Berardino of the...
