Twins | Phil Hughes repeating 2014 breakout

Sun, 10 May 2015 06:56:17 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes has nearly identical numbers to his breakout 2014 season through his first seven starts in 2015. Hughes has 44 innings pitched, 32 strikeouts and four walks allowed but he has surrendered nine home runs, five more than he allowed at this time last season.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) has a 5.11 ERA thus far, but he has a much more respectable 3.87 xFIP. Season-long owners need to be patient as Hughes should start to bounce back shortly.

Twins | Phil Hughes to start Monday

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:34:41 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) is good to go for his next start Monday, May 4, according to manager Paul Molitor.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was in the midst of a fine start against the Detroit Tigers before his hip impingement knocked him out this week. The Oakland Athletics are a decent matchup for Hughes on Monday, but you may want to play it safe and avoid him at FantasyScore coming off a short outing.

Twins | Phil Hughes expects to make next start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 14:47:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) said his hip worsened as the game went on Wednesday, April 29, but he thinks it's a minor injury and hopes to make his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) was coming off his best start of the year, giving up only two earned runs in eight innings against the Seattle Mariners last Friday, and he was pitching well today before leaving. He almost certainly won't match his outstanding 2014 season in which he went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA, but Hughes can be useful in the right matchups at FantasyScore.

Twins | Phil Hughes injured

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 12:39:11 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (hip) left his start early Wednesday, April 29, because of a mild hip flexor strain.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor the situation to see if Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) will be able to make his next start. Hughes has struggled at times this season, so owners on FantasyScore may want avoid him for the time being.

Twins | Phil Hughes on track

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:49:03 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (finger) reported no issues with his cracked fingernail on his right middle finger while playing catch Monday, April 20. He remains on track to face the Seattle Mariners Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is off to a slow start in 2015 after a career year in 2014. He is 0-3 with a 5.30 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings. The Mariners haven't exactly played very well to begin the season, either, but Hughes should be considered a low-end FantasyScore starter later this week.

Twins | Phil Hughes to start opener

Mon, 06 Apr 2015 03:48:30 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes will start Monday, April 6, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) enjoyed a renaissance of sorts last year in Minnesota with a 16-10 record. His eye-popping ratio (16 walks, 186 strikeouts) makes him a fantastic pickup in leagues where that is a category. Hughes was 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA against Detroit last year and should hold his own.

Twins | Phil Hughes likely to start opener

Mon, 23 Feb 2015 14:15:28 -0800

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes is slated to start the opener against the Detroit Tigers April 6, according to manager Paul Molitor. Hughes went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA in 32 starts last year for Minnesota, and he set a major league record with an 11.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio. Hughes threw 73% of his pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: It's safe to say Hughes will see some form of regression in his second season with the Twins. While Minnesota was a great landing spot for the righty, be careful not to overvalue him in 2015 after the solid season he had last year. If you prepare for a fall back to reality, Hughes can be serviceable on your fantasy roster rounding out your pitching staff.
