Twins | Phil Hughes ditching slider
Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes is ditching his slider this year in favor of a cutter and curveball, and he threw around seven to eight curveballs in his intrasquad outing Thursday, Feb. 27, and will continue to mix the pitch in this spring. He threw his slider a career-high 23.8 percent last season and didn't throw a cutter at all. Hughes threw a cutter 16.1 percent of the time during his All-Star season in 2010.
