Hughes underwent successful surgery to relieve thoracic outlet syndrome on Wednesday, MLB.com reports. Part of Hughes' rib was removed to relieve nerve pressure on his shoulder. According to manager Paul Molitor, the procedure has "a very, very good chance of alleviating some of the things he was enduring while pitching." Hughes, who's also recovering from a fractured left femur suffered June 9, expects to be ready to go for spring training.
Hughes (shoulder) will miss the rest of the 2016 season with thoracic outlet syndrome and will need to have surgery to remove part of his rib, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Hughes was originally placed on the 60-day DL with a fractured knee that was suffered earlier this month, but will now miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. He will undergo surgery July 6 in the Twin Cities and should be ready to return by spring training.
Hughes will be transferred to the 60-day DL, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Hughes is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks after a comebacker resulted in a fractured knee, so the Twins will make the procedural move in order to make room on the 25-man roster to add Neil Ramirez, who was claimed off waivers Sunday.
Hughes will miss 6-to-8 weeks due to a fracture in his knee, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports. Initial X-rays from Thursday came back negative, but the Twins have since discovered a "compaction fracture" above his left knee. Hughes took a comebacker off his knee Thursday that was clocked at well over 100 miles per hour. According to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press, Hughes is unlikely to get back on a big league mound until September.
Hughes (knee) has been placed on the 15-day DL, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports. Hughes exited Thursday's game with a bruised left knee after getting hit by a line drive. X-rays were negative but he was set to undergo more tests. If this injury isn't serious, the Twins may want Hughes to make several starts in the minors to get back to form as he lost his spot in the rotation before the ailment.
