Phil Hughes era in the Bronx is over

Phil Hughes 2

Well Yankees fans, it looks as if the era of Phil Hughes in the Bronx is finally over.

According to CBS Sports, Phil Hughes and the Minnesota Twins agreed to a three-year deal worth $24 Million pending a physical. Hughes is the second addition to the Twins rotation following Ricky Nolasco with a four-year deal worth $49 Million.

Hughes was the youngest free agent starter in the market, going 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA in 2013 with the Yankees. Hughes needed the change in environment; Yankee Stadium is too small for him since he’s a fly-ball pitcher and Target Field is a pitchers ballpark.

We wish Hughes the best of luck and we hope he can turn his career around (just not vs. the Yankees).

    Thank goodness this guy is gone. I cannot believe anyone would give him a 3 year deal, but bad teams do get desperate.
