Twins SP Phil Hughes suffers complete-game loss Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes had his finest start of the season Friday at Seattle and was deserving of his first win. Unfortunately, Hughes was opposing Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, who was just that much better in a 2-0 win for Seattle.

Hughes (0-4) allowed just two runs on six hits and no walks in eight innings, while striking out nine. However, Hernandez threw a five-hit, complete-game shutout. He also had nine strikeouts.

Hughes' only mistakes Friday were solo home runs to Nelson Cruz and Logan Morrison. Despite the loss, he lowered his ERA from 5.30 to 4.39.

The right-hander had his fourth-career complete game Friday. He will look for his first win in his next scheduled start Wednesday vs. Detroit.

Twins' Tim Stauffer struggling with changeup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Twins reliever Tim Stauffer admits that he's not "where I'd like to be at this point in the year," per TwinCities.com.

Through five appearances, Stauffer has a 9.00 ERA.

"I’ve always been a little bit of a slow starter," he said. "Obviously, I don’t want to make any excuses. I’d like to be able to go out there and get in a groove. I really don’t feel like I’ve hit that groove quite yet." 

Stauffer said that his changeup "is still not where I want it to be".

Twins' Ricky Nolasco has rehab start pushed back a day
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Injured Twins pitcher Ricky Nolasco will start his minor league injury rehab assignment a day later than expected. 

Nolasco was originally supposed to start for Class-A Cedar Rapids on Saturday. Instead, he'll take the mound on Sunday, per the Star Tribune.

There is a 90 percent chance of rain on Saturday, which led to the change in the schedule.

Twins RHP Pelfrey coming through 'crossroads' of career
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The lights-out performance by Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey in Kansas City on Wednesday seemingly came out of nowhere. But not to him. He believes regaining his health after season-ending elbow surgery in 2014 is a key to his success.

The 31-year-old Pelfrey insisted through spring training that he was healthy, but it took the suspension of teammate Ervin Santana to move him from the bullpen into the rotation. The rest is history - Pelfrey has pitched better in every start. He peaked by tossing seven innings of five-hit shutout ball against the hot Royals to lower his ERA to 2.65.

"I think going ino the offsdason, I was at a crossroads at my career," he told MLB.com. "I busted my tail to come back. I wanted to be a starting pitcher. It didn't happen the way I envisioned it, but I'm thankful to get this opportunity and I hope I can run with it."

Pelfrey had not thrown seven innings without allowing an earned run since Aug. 27, 2010. His victory Wednesday broke a stretch of 13 consecutive winless starts.
