Jared Hughes: Announces retirement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes announced his retirement Sunday, Jake Crouse of reports.

Hughes spent 10 seasons in the majors as a reliever with the Pirates, Brewers, Reds, Phillies and Mets. While the 35-year-old's results declined over the past two seasons, he finishes his career with 12 saves and a 2.96 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 542 relief appearances.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Takes loss in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (0-1) gave up two runs on two hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Marlins in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. He did not record a strikeout.

Hughes relieved Seth Lugo to start the fourth inning, and a two-run double by Brian Anderson was enough to leave Hughes with the loss. The 35-year-old righty has a 3.38 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and eight strikeouts through 10.2 innings this season. He's recorded two holds.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Set for season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was activated off the injured list Sunday, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

The veteran right-hander missed summer camp and the start of the season after testing positive for COVID-19, but he's now ready to make his 2020 debut. Hughes had a 4.04 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 54:27 K:BB over 71.1 innings last season and should fill a middle-relief role for the Mets.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Nears return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes faced hitters for the second consecutive day Saturday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

Hughes said Wednesday that he feels as though he's back to full strength after battling COVID-19 during camp, and his throwing schedule echoes that claim. If he feels good following his second consecutive throwing session Saturday, the right-hander could be activated and make his season debut in the coming days.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Feels good after COVID-19 battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (undisclosed) said Wednesday that he feels like he's back to full strength after he was placed on the injured list in mid-July due to a positive COVID-19 test, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

According to Rosenthal, Hughes believes he first picked up the coronavirus while traveling in late June, but the reliever indicated he initially tested negative and was asymptomatic for a week and a half before a positive test result emerged. Hughes' recovery from the illness prevented him from cracking the Opening Day roster, but he's since been cleared for workouts at the team's alternate training site and has thrown in multiple simulated games. He could be activated ahead of this weekend's series in Atlanta.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Could be close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (undisclosed) was scheduled to throw live batting practice Sunday and could be less than a week away from activation off the injured list, Anthony DiComo of reports.

The Mets' bullpen had to carry a heavy load through the first series of the season against Atlanta, so reinforcements would definitely be welcome. Hughes posted a 4.04 ERA and 1.18 WHIP over 71.1 innings for the Reds and Phillies last season, albeit with a mediocre 54:27 K:BB.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Back with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (undisclosed) rejoined the Mets on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Hughes missed all of camp for an undisclosed reason and remains on the 10-day injured list, but he appears to be on the right track toward returning. The right-hander should require some time to ramp up his workload, and it's unclear when he'll be ready to be activated.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday for an undisclosed reason, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Hughes signed a major-league deal with the Mets in late June, but he's yet to report to camp and will now land on the injured list for an undisclosed reason. If his absence is related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the team wouldn't legally be allowed to say so. Given the timing of the move, Hughes will miss the start of the regular season, but it's unclear exactly how long he'll be sidelined.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Not yet at camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes has yet to join his new Mets teammates, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Mets manager Luis Rojas didn't provide a reason for Hughes' absence, but the reliever had only just signed his contract with the Mets last Tuesday, so it's possible that his absence has nothing to do with COVID-19. Whatever the reason, the righty won't have much time to get in game shape before Opening Day, which is less than three weeks away.

Mets' Jared Hughes: Joins Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes signed a major-league deal with the Mets on Tuesday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

The soon-to-be 35-year-old signed a minors deal with the Astros in February, but he was released shortly after spring training was suspended a month later. Hughes split 2019 between Cincinnati and Philadelphia and had a 4.04 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 54:27 K:BB across 71.1 frames while recording seven holds. He figures to work in middle relief for the Mets.

Jared Hughes: Granted unconditional release
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was released by the Astros on Thursday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

Hughes inked a minor-league deal with the Astros during the offseason that included an opt-out if he wasn't added to the 40-man roster by March 18, and he chose to exercise that option Thursday. The 34-year-old posted a 6.35 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP over 5.2 innings during spring training. Hughes has been relatively effective as a middle reliever in past seasons, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him join another club at some point in 2020 despite his struggles this spring.

Astros' Jared Hughes: Joins Astros on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes signed with the Astros as a non-roster invitee Monday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

The 34-year-old has nine years of big-league experience under his belt and owns a 2.88 career ERA. Last season, in 71.1 innings with the Reds and Phillies, he posted a 4.04 ERA, relying on his 59.2 percent groundball rate to cover for his low 18.7 percent strikeout rate.

Jared Hughes: Bound for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes will become a free agent after the Phillies declined their club option Monday.

Hughes was competent enough in 2019, posting a 4.04 ERA in 71.1 innings with the Reds and Phillies. The Phillies didn't feel as though that was enough to bring the 34-year-old back on a $3 million deal, so he'll be looking for a new home this offseason.

Phillies' Jared Hughes: Earns win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes (5-5) earned the win against the Braves on Thursday after tossing 1.2 scoreless innings that included two walks and a pair of strikeouts.

Hughes didn't exactly do anything spectacular for the win aside from relieving starter Drew Smyly in the fifth inning while keeping the Braves from scoring. The 34-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Phillies in August and owns a 4.33 ERA and 1.22 WHIP across 63 appearances.

Phillies' Jared Hughes: Claimed by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was claimed off waivers by the Phillies on Thursday.

This move comes after Hughes pitched three scoreless innings during Wednesday's 17-7 loss to the Nationals. The veteran right-hander owns a 4.10 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 34:19 K:BB through 48.1 innings this season and should settle into a middle-relief role for his new team.

Reds' Jared Hughes: Suspension begins Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes will begin serving his three-game suspension Thursday.

Hughes was suspended three games at the beginning of August for his role in Cincinnati's benches-clearing incident with the Pirates, though he was able to continue pitching while appealing the suspension. He'll be eligible to return for Sunday's series finale against the Cubs after sitting out the first three games of the series.

Reds' Jared Hughes: Suspended three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was given a three-game suspension for his role in Tuesday's benches-clearing incident with the Pirates, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Hughes was ejected from Tuesday's game after hitting Starling Marte in the ninth inning, which led to Amir Garrett coming into the game and subsequently starting a brawl later in the frame. He'll appeal the suspension, making him eligible to pitch in the meantime.

Reds' Jared Hughes: Ejected after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes was ejected in the ninth inning of Tuesday's loss to the Pirates for hitting Starling Marte with a pitch after both benches had already been warned.

We won't speculate whether the pitch, which hit Marte on the leg, was purposeful. But Hughes's ejection led to Amir Garrett coming into the game, and subsequently starting a wild brawl later in the inning.

July 27, 2019 03:36 PM
Reds' Jared Hughes: Crushed by Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes gave up six runs in the ninth inning against the Rockies on Friday, allowing six hits and a walk.

Hughes's ERA skyrocketed from 2.89 to 4.09 with the bad outing. He was used to pick up a save earlier in the week, but anyone who picked him up to speculate against Raisel Iglesias got punished hard Friday.

July 23, 2019 12:16 AM
Reds' Jared Hughes: Records first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hughes walked one and struck out one to record the one-out save in a 6-5 win over the Brewers on Monday.

After a rough eighth inning for Raisel Iglesias, Wandy Peralta was used to retire the first two batters in the ninth inning before Hughes came in to record the last out of the game. The 34-year-old is a trade candidate, but it is highly unlikely that he will be in a situation to earn consistent save opportunities. Hughes has a 2.93 ERA through 40 innings this season.
