      Twins SP Phil Hughes tosses five shutout innings

      Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes (11-9) went five shutout innings Wednesday, giving up four hits and no walks while striking out four in a 6-4 win over the Indians. Departing after throwing just 66 pitches, Hughes performed well in his second start since returning from the disabled list. It appears that Hughes will keep Tommy Milone's rotation spot in the short term, though his reduced pitch counts indicate that he may not be at 100 percent.

      Twins' Phil Hughes to make start against Indians on Wednesday

      Twins pitcher Phil Hughes will replace Tommy Milone in the rotation and start Wednesday at Cleveland, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Hughes had moved to the bullpen after he struggled in his first start back from a back injury on Sept. 15. He gave up a run with a strikeout in two innings in relief on Saturday and that convinced the Twins to give him another shot at the rotation with Milone ailing with a sore shoulder.

      Twins remove Phil Hughes from rotation

      Struggling Twins pitcher Phil Hughes won't start during the upcoming homestand, but could pitch in relief, Rhett Bollinger of reports. The plan for Hughes moving forward remains a bit unclear, but he will at least be temporarily removed from the rotation. Hughes has allowed 18 runs over his last 16 2/3 innings covering four starts and has lost his last three decisions. The Twins, who are on the cusp of taking over a playoff spot, can't afford to take any chances by continuing to throw him out there.

      Twins pitcher Phil Hughes picks up loss Tuesday

      Twins pitcher Phil Hughes allowed three runs on six hits and a walk over three innings in his ninth loss Tuesday against Detroit. He also struck out four. Hughes threw 65 pitches in his return from the disabled list with a back injury. His control was sharp, as he threw just 22 balls in 65 pitches, but he induced just four swinging strikes and couldn't make the Tigers miss when he needed to. Only one of the Tigers' six hits off Hughes was an extra-base hit, a Victor Martinez double, but it was enough to get to him. Expect his pitch count to bump up in his next start, but he may still not be at full strength yet.
