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:...

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire downplayed a published report that general manager Terry Ryan wants him to return in 2015. “I don’t pay attention to it,” Gardenhire said before Friday’s game against the Detroit Tigers. “I don’t worry about it. I talk to Terry Ryan about it. We’ll talk at the end of the year, as always.” Ryan has remained noncommittal about his own plans as he continues to work back from having a cancerous growth removed from his neck in February.

Kluber, Indians fail to sweep, fall 4-1 to Twins

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Corey Kluber has pitched so well for Cleveland this summer he's put himself in the conversation about the American League Cy Young Award. On a so-so afternoon for the right-handed rock of the rotation, the Indians didn't help him out. Kennys Vargas homered and sparked rallies with two other hits, leading the Minnesota Twins past Kluber and the Indians 4-1 Thursday.
