Hughes out for season
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
