Molitor expects Phil Hughes to start Twins' opener
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor knows who his ace is. While speaking to the media on Monday, Molitor said he expects RHP Phil Hughes to start on opening day for the Twins, assuming he remains healthy.  

Molitor did hedge his bet, saying that the decision was "in pencil."  

Hughes was 16-10, with a 3.52 ERA in his first season with the Twins, last year.

Phil Hughes happy to be with Twins 'long-term'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After going 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA in 2014 -- his first season with the Twins -- Phil Hughes was rewarded with a three-year, $42 million contract extension. The 28-year-old right-hander is happy to be under contract with Minnesota through the 2019 season.

"I was excited to get it done and have a sense of home here," Hughes said, per MLB.com. "For me, it was about signing somewhere I felt comfortable. I wanted to do something long-term here."

Hughes said he started his offseason throwing program in November. However, he has yet to throw off a mound. 

"Every year I start throwing pretty early, like three or four days a week, and kind of steadily get going and get my arm in shape," Hughes said. "It's a program that's worked pretty well for me. I like to be ahead of the curve and show up to spring training ready and having already thrown bullpens."

Twins make it official: Hughes in the fold for three years
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

What was reported is now official - the Twins have announced that they have signed a three-year contract extension with right-hander and 2014 standout Phil Hughes for $42 million.

Hughes thrived away from Yankee Stadium, where he yielded 59 home runs in 2012 and 2013 combined. Pitching in more spacious Target Field, he allowed just 16 dingers last season and finished 16-20 with a 3.52 ERA.
