Hughes will head to the waiver wire after being designated for assignment. Manager Paul Molitor stated that Hughes wasn't asked about a minor-league assignment, meaning Hughes will likely end up with another team in the near future if he garners any interest. The 31-year-old has failed to be effective out of the bullpen this season, accruing a 6.75 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 12 innings.
