Source: Twins Have Verbal Agreement With Hughes

Created: 11/30/2013 11:30 PM KSTP.com

A source with direct knowledge tells KSTP's Darren Wolfson that the Twins have a verbal agreement with free agent starter Phil Hughes.

The former Yankee All-Star will sign a 3-year, $24 million deal upon passing a physical in the coming days, the source adds.

Hughes had a bad 2013 season, going 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA. He gave up on average over a hitting an inning in his 145 2/3 innings.

Hughes is known as a fly-ball pitcher, so moving to spacious Target Field should help him a lot. He also has shown the ability to strike batters out, which will help the Twins greatly.

Hughes is only 27-years-old.
