According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the Twins are now likely to turn their attention to free agent right-hander Phil Hughes. George A. King III of the New York Post hears that Hughes is looking for a two-year contract, with the Twins, Angels, Mariners, and Royals among the potential landing spots. The Mets have been mentioned as a possibility, but they aren’t comfortable going beyond one year.
Hughes, 27, is coming off a rough year in which he posted a 5.19 ERA and 121/42 K/BB ratio over 145 2/3 innings. He has been really hurt by the home run ball at Yankee Stadium, so a move to a more pitcher-friendly environment could prove beneficial. Or that’s the hope, anyway.
