Twins | Phil Hughes decent in loss

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 00:06:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes did not allow a walk over six innings, making it the 56th straight start in which he has issued fewer than three free passes. Hughes still lost the start Thursday, April 7, in a 4-2 setback against the Baltimore Orioles.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes gave most of his owners a quality start in this game, as his lineup just didn't hit for him in a setback. Hughes won't surrender too many negative points for you, and he makes a solid fantasy starter if the Twins are healthy and hitting.

Twins | Phil Hughes opens spring well

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 19:05:31 -0800

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes worked two scoreless innings in his Grapefruit League spring debut Wednesday, March 4, against the Boston Red Sox, needing just 20 pitches while allowing one hit. He threw extra in the bullpen after the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes posted an 11-9 record with a 4.40 ERA in 27 appearances (25 starts) last season, but he also 29 homers over 155 1/3 innings while striking out just 94. His strikeouts were way down, and his homers allowed were way up, after a sparkling 2014 campaign. He is worth a look as a back-end fantasy rotation filler in AL-only play and some deeper mixed formats. Hopefully you get 2014 Hughes rather than bad 2015 Hughes. If stats are an indication, a bounce-back season is likely, as he has pitched well in even-numbered years, and poorly in odd-numbered ones.

Twins | Phil Hughes lighter this spring

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 09:47:46 -0800

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes said he lost around 15 pounds this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Too much risk here for owners in shallow mixed leagues. Hughes' control should bounce back, but he doesn't miss enough bats and has a problem keeping balls in the yard, even in Minnesota.

Twins | Phil Hughes feeling better

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 13:59:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (illness) played catch and was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 29. He is hoping he can pitch out of the bullpen Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) will make one more start this season sometime this weekend. However, even if he does, he'd be a weak FantasyScore play coming off an illness.

Twins | Tommy Milone starting against Cleveland

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:14:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone is starting against the Cleveland Indians Monday, Sept. 28, in place of SP Phil Hughes (illness).

Fantasy Tip: Milone ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) owns a 5.72 ERA through 11 appearances in the second half with an unattractive 6.6 K/9. FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a contrarian flier for contests Monday.

Twins | Phil Hughes scratched from start

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:08:28 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (illness) will not start against the Cleveland Indians Monday, Sept. 28. SP Tommy Milone will start in place of Hughes against Cleveland Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday, and there is no telling what is next for him. View him as a desperation hold in seasonal leagues at this stage of the game. Milone ($5,600, 11.2% of cap), similarly, isn't a strong option for FantasyScore players Monday. He owns a 5.72 ERA through 11 appearances in the second half.

Twins | Plan for Phil Hughes unclear

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 14:47:08 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes will not start during the current homestand, but he might pitch out of the bullpen this weekend, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor noted there is currently no concrete plan for Hughes.

Fantasy Tip: The Twins' next road game is Friday, Sept. 25, so unless things change, you can't count on Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) in seasonal leagues for the next week. At best, it appears he will make two more starts this season, and he isn't worth holding onto in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Twins | Phil Hughes scratched from next start

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 17:14:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey will start in place of SP Phil Hughes Sunday, Sept. 20, according to general manager Terry Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) allowed three runs on six hits over three innings in a loss to the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, Sept. 15, in his first start since coming off the disabled list due to a back injury. Manager Paul Molitor said he wasn't sharp and had difficulty keeping the ball down. Duffey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts and has four quality starts over that stretch, so he could be worthy of consideration as a value option in FantasyScore.

Twins | Phil Hughes starting Tuesday

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 09:20:43 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (back) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 15, and he will start against the Detroit Tigers. The Twins are expected to limit Hughes to 75 to 80 pitches in his first start back.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a mistake to rely on Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) tonight on FantasyScore in his first start back, especially since there's a good chance he won't even factor into the decision with a limited pitch count.

Twins | Phil Hughes may return next week

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 05:37:13 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (back) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Saturday, Sept. 12, and could rejoin the starting rotation Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has not pitched since August 9 and could be on a pitch count when he returns to the rotation. Owners on FantasyScore may want to see Hughes pitch in a game before considering him an option.
