Twins Sign Phil Hughes to an Extension

The Minnesota Twins have agreed to a 3 year 42 million-dollar deal with Phil Hughes. Hughes, who is currently age 28 went 16-10 for the Twins last season with a 3.52 earned run average, 186 strikeouts, and just 16 walks in 209.2 innings of work. Hughes emergence last season was a huge bright spot for a franchise that was struggling majorly last season.

Phil Hughes had a chance to collect a 500 thousand-dollar bonus last season, but he said he couldn’t take the bonus

“I just didn’t think it was right,” Hughes said. “I owe too much to this organization for the next two years to risk getting hurt for an incentive. For whatever reason it wasn’t meant to be. There’s a lot bigger problems out there. I’m proud of my season.
