Hughes has been terrific, 7-3 with an ERA just over 3; he's been a bargain for Minnesota after signing in the offseason.

Phil Hughes/7-3, 3.09 ERA in 2014: “I've been more aggressive with my fastball than I can ever remember. Sometimes that aggressiveness and attacking the strikeouts and things like that can play into guys just not getting good swings on you. It's a good feeling. I've gone on stretches. First half of 2010 I went on a really good run there and other times through the course of my career I've gone on some pretty good runs. This is one of those where you feel pretty good about things. Especially mechanically I feel so comfortable with some of the changes I made. Just standing over the rubber I feel like it's coming out pretty effortlessly right now.”
