    • Hughes was placed on the 60-day DL on Tuesday with reoccurrence of symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome. It sounds like this could be the end of Hughes' season, as he last pitched July 14 and would therefore be ineligible to return until mid September. Hughes had already moved to a bullpen role with Minnesota, and his fantasy value has completely cratered this season (5.87 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 53.2 innings).

    • Hughes (biceps) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday, The Twins had initially planned to have Hughes make a fourth and final rehab appearance at Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, but that was scrapped after Craig Breslow (ribs) required a trip to the disabled list. Hughes had started in all but three of his prior 80 appearances with the Twins over the past three-plus seasons, but he'll transition to a relief role in his return to the active roster after being hit hard in his previous nine outings with the big club in 2017. Hughes, whose fastball has sat in the high-80s-to-low-90s this season, noted during his previous rehab appearances that he hadn't seen the uptick in velocity he was hoping for while working out of the bullpen, so it may be difficult for him to notice dramatically different results in a relief role. The Twins will likely use him as a multi-inning mop-up man initially.

    • Twins' Phil Hughes: Slated for one more rehab outing
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hughes (biceps) is set to throw 35-40 pitches in a relief appearance for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, which is expected to be his final rehab outing, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Twins manager Paul Molitor said he hoped to see more velocity out of Hughes in his last rehab game, but isn't concerned by the current situation. The veteran right-hander has yet to allow a run through three appearances with Rochester, though he hasn't thrown more than 23 pitches in any of them. Wednesday should give a better indication as to his readiness, but there's potential for him to return to the big-league rotation next week.

    • Twins' Phil Hughes: Sharp in rehab appearance
      By RotoWire Staff

      Hughes (biceps) tossed a scoreless inning of relief for Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, allowing just one walk. Everything apparently went without an issue, as Hughes is expected to make another appearance for Rochester on Thursday. Hughes has been sidelined for around a month with biceps tendinitis, so It appears the Twins may be looking to move him into the bullpen upon activation in order to reduce the strain on his arm.
