Phil Hughes Newsbeat

Thursday, August 30, 2018

Former Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes hates Fenway Park and Wrigley Field

In the Harrington Era, I agreed with Hughes assessment. The changes made by Henry’s group, though, changed my mind. It doesn’t have some of the amenities of the newer older parks but they don’t have Fenway’s charm.

Padres acquire Phil Hughes from Twins, but he’s probably not why they made the deal

In all likelihood, the Padres made this deal despite Hughes’s inclusion rather than because of it. In exchange for taking on less than $7 million in 2019 money, the Padres will net the 74th pick in the draft. (Remember, the competitive balance picks are tradeable.) This will again give the Padres four picks in the top-84, beginning with pick No. 7—they’d previously surrendered their second-round pick to sign Eric Hosmer. In addition, the Padres will pick 38th and 84th

Twins part with Phil Hughes despite owing him more than $22 million

The lingering uncertainty over Phil Hughes’ role on the Twins is finally over. There isn’t one.

The veteran righthander, who hoped to capture a spot in the starting rotation during spring training, then tried to fill a vague, undefined bullpen role when that didn’t work, was designated for assignment following Monday’s game, a reluctant acknowledgement by the Twins that they can wait no longer to figure out how to use him.
