Twinsights: How Friday's rainout could cost Phil Hughes $500,000

CHICAGO -- 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. Milone, who had been scheduled to work Saturday, will now start Monday at the earliest, at home against Detroit. That will give him nearly two full weeks between starts as he was skipped after another brief outing on Sept. 2 against the Chicago White Sox. Phil Hughes will start Saturday afternoon at 3:10 with rookie left-hander Logan Darnell getting the nod in...

Postgame Twinsights: Phil Hughes and Bret Saberhagen cross paths again

Phil Hughes crossed paths again with Bret Saberhagen on Saturday night. With eight more strikeouts against the Los Angeles Angels while stretching his latest walk-free streak to 155 batters (and counting), Hughes moved his season strikeout/walk rate to a ridiculous 11.0. That ties Saberhagen's all-time major league mark (one inning per team game), dating to 1900. While Hughes has 165 strikeouts (matching a career high from 2012) against just 15 walks in 187 2/3 innings, Saberhagen struck out 143 while walking just 13 in 177 1/3 innings for the New York Mets in the strike-shortened 1994...

Hughes made mid-game adjustments

Twins righthander Phil Hughes says he was lucky to survive early innings Saturday, but made adjustments that helped him get through 7 innings.

Pregame: Hughes aims for 15th win; Perkins not available

Twins' ace Phil Hughes will try to take the AL lead in victories, but his team is missing closer Glen Perkins for a few days.

Mauer, Hughes carry Twins past Orioles

Joe Mauer had four RBI and Phil Hughes won his 15th game by allowing only three unearned runs over eight innings to keep Minnesota from being swept in the four-game series.

Hughes: Great stuff, bad finish

Twins righthander Phil Hughes said he was disappointed he wasn't able to protect a 1-0 lead, because he pitched well for seven innings Wednesday.

Twins Fade Late Again, Lose 6-1

Once again this was a low scoring affair, but the Twins pitching staff couldn't hold down yet another 1-0 lead. This one was much like yesterday. Then it was Ricky Nolasco pitching 7 shutout innings before yielding to the bullpen, where Glen Perkins blew the lead in the 9th inning. Tonight, it was Phil Hughes pitching 7 shutout innings, but then he ran into trouble in the 8th and the bullpen was unable to put out the fire. Surprisingly Liam Hendriks pitched very well for once in his major league lifetime. He went 7 innings while allowing only 1 run, which came in his final inning. Kennys...

Minnesota Twins: Phil Hughes in line for $1M in bonuses

Twins pitching ace Phil Hughes remains on track to make seven more starts after beating the Cleveland Indians on Thursday.

Twinsights: As bonuses await, Phil Hughes intends to complete a "nice full year"

Twins ace Phil Hughes remains on track to make seven more starts after beating the Cleveland Indians on Thursday. Not only would that give him one start worth of wiggle room in a late bid to become the first 20-game winner for the Twins since Johan Santana in 2004, but Hughes (14-8) would have a solid chance of maxing out $1 million worth of performance bonuses. At 165 innings, he stands just 15 innings shy of trigging the first $250,000 bonus stacked atop his three-year, $24 million contract. Another $250,000 would be due Hughes at 195 innings, which would require [...] The post Twinsights:...

Hughes won without "best stuff"

Hughes strong again, Vargas and Arcia provide spark as Twins top Indians 4-1

Phil Hughes wins number 14 by out-dueling Clevaland ace Corey Kluber. Corey Kluber and Phil Hughes are among the American League's best pitcher this season. Kluber is likely to get more attention from Cy Young award voters than Hughes, and rightfully so, but on any given day either pitcher could easily come out ahead. Kluber gave the Indians three runs in seven innings, but Hughes was the better pitcher today. Over seven innings, Hughes allowed just one run off of five hits. He struck out eight and didn't issue a walk, but perhaps the best thing you could say about him today was that...

Who Else Is Having A Season Like Gibson?

This year, Kyle Gibson has been extraordinary in wins and terrible in losses. Is he truly an outlier or are there other pitchers out there that have been just as inconsistent as him? Throughout this season, we've seen Kyle Gibson turn into the second-best starter in the Twins rotation behind Phil Hughes. Armed with a good sinking fastball, Gibson has been able to get his opponents to beat the ball into the ground, which has led to very few strikeouts, but also very few home runs. However, it's been well-documented that he's been fairly inconsistent this year. Specifically, during FSN...
