Hughes out for sea­son

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL -

MIN­NEAPO­LIS — Min­nesota Twins righthander Phil Hughes will miss the rest of the sea­son be­cause of per­sis­tent arm trou­ble re­lated to a con­di­tion that re­quired rib re­moval surgery a year ago.

The Twins put Hughes on the 60-day dis­abled list Tues­day, and Man­ager Paul Moli­tor said an­other op­er­a­tion is pos­si­ble. Hughes re­cov­ered from the tho­racic out­let syn­drome pro­ce­dure for a spot in the ro­ta­tion to be­gin the sea­son, but he went to the DL af­ter nine starts with a re­cur­rence of shoul­der weak­ness.

Hughes re­turned as a re­liever ear­lier this month, mak­ing five ap­pear­ances. He was 4-3 with a 5.87 ERA in 532/ in­nings. 3
