Phil Hughes SP MIN 27 Mins

Phil Hughes is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised right shin.

Hughes was injured when he took an Adam Dunn comebacker in the fourth inning of Thursday's outing versus the White Sox. It doesn't appear that X-rays will be required, so Hughes should have a good shot to make his next start. He struck out four while allowing two runs over three frames before exiting.

Phil Hughes left Thursday's start versus the White Sox after being hit in the right leg by a comebacker.

Adam Dunn's smash appeared to hit Hughes' shin, and he eventually limped off the field with the Twins' trainer. He'll likely go for an X-ray, at which point an update on his status will be available.

Phil Hughes was blown up for 11 hits and five runs over seven innings Saturday in a loss to the Rays.

Phil Hughes allowed 10 hits and five runs over five innings but took the win against the Rockies on Sunday.

Hughes was staked to a five-run lead, but he very nearly didn't hang on to get his 10th win. The right-hander did manage to strike out six while not walking a batter. It's a good end to a good first half for Hughes, who goes into the break with a 3.92 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 108/11 K/BB ratio over 121 2/3 innings. He seems to have turned a corner this year, and his good first half should carry over into the second.

Phil Hughes struck out eight while tossing 7 1/3 shutout frames in Tuesday's 2-0 victory over the Mariners.

Hughes scattered eight hits and declined to issue a free pass in a return to his elite May form (3-0, 1.62 ERA). The veteran right-hander needed a positive outing after going 1-2 with an 8.05 ERA in his past three starts, a stretch that likely cost him a chance to pitch in his home ballpark in next week's All-Star Game. Having improved to 9-5 with a 3.70 ERA and 1.17 WHIP, Hughes travels to Colorado on Sunday to close out a first half renaissance.

Phil Hughes was rocked by his former team, allowing seven runs in 6 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

It's easily the worst start of the season for Hughes, who pitched well against the Yankees back on June 1. The right-hander surrendered two home runs, both in the fourth inning, to Carlos Beltran and Zelous Wheeler. Overall, he allowed eight hits, walked one, and struck out six. Hughes may be experiencing some regression, as he has struggled in four out of his last six starts. He now sports a 3.95 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and a 94/11 K/BB ratio, which he'll take into next week's start against the Mariners at Safeco Field.

Phil Hughes was knocked around for five earned runs on 11 hits Saturday against the Rangers.

It's the second straight rough outing for Hughes, who is regressing quickly from his impressive start to the 2014 season. He struck out six Texas hitters on Saturday and issued only one walk, but the Rangers battered him for nine singles and two doubles. Hughes will try to get back on track next week against his former team, the Yankees.

Phil Hughes allowed five runs on eight hits in five innings but came away with the win against the White Sox on Sunday.

The White Sox did all of their damage in the third inning, when Hughes allowed six of his eight hits on the afternoon. Otherwise, it was largely a start like many of Hughes' in 2014 -- even after the unbecoming start, Hughes owns a 3.40 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 15 starts. He'll look for a similar result but a better showing Saturday at the Rangers.

Phil Hughes allowed two runs on eight hits in a complete-game loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Hughes fanned six in the outing while not walking a batter. Even in the loss, the right-hander continues to pitch like one of the best pitchers in the American League -- outside of a start earlier this month against the Astros, Hughes has turned in a quality start in 10 of his last 11 starts. He owns a 3.09 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 78/8 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings this season, and he'll take on the White Sox on Sunday.

Phil Hughes struck out nine while tossing seven shutout frames in Wednesday's 7-2 victory over the Blue Jays.

He allowed seven hits and didn't walk anyone. The nine punchouts were a season high for the right-hander. Hughes' best work probably came in the sixth inning, when he was able to strand runners at first and third with no one out with a Jose Bautista foulout and strikeouts over Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind. The righty now boasts a 3.17 ERA and 70/8 K/BB ratio over 82 1/3 innings this season. He'll try to keep it going next week in Boston.
