Hughes was named Minnesota's Opening Day starter by manager Paul Molitor, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Hughes has agreed to a three-year, $42 million contract extension with Minnesota, the New York Daily News reports.

The contract will replace the two years and $16 million remaining on his contract to in effect give him a five-year, $58 million deal. Hughes set a major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio (11.63) in his first season in Minnesota while going 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA.

Hughes finished the 2014 season on a high note, giving up one run on five hits and no walks with five strikeouts in eight innings Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

In an under-the-radar impeccable 2014 campaign, Hughes set a major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio (11.63), and he actually had as many wins as walks (16) over 209.2 innings, which is a mind-boggling stat. Not only did he walk as many guys in the season as some pitchers do in a month, but he combined his superb control with 186 strikeouts, showcasing his ability to still miss bats while living in the strike zone. Hughes came at a bargain on draft day this season, but look for him to be treated as at least a solid No. 3 fantasy starter going into next season.

Hughes allowed four runs on 10 hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out five over seven innings but came away with a no-decision in the Twins' 5-4 win over Cleveland in 10 innings Friday night.

Hughes was, as he has all season, throwing strikes (68 of 90 pitches), but as sometimes happens, he missed in the zone a little too often leading to four runs, and a no-decision. He's walked just one batter in his last seven starts, and he'll carry a very respectable 3.61 ERA as he goes for his 16th win against Arizona in his final 2014 start.

Friday's game against the White Sox has been postponed due to rain, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

As a result, both Hughes and Jose Quintana will be moved back to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader, with Logan Darnell to follow for the Twins in the nightcap. Trevor May will still start Sunday, meaning Tommy Milone now goes Monday.

Hughes allowed three runs and seven hits while striking out eight in seven innings Saturday against the Angels.

Hughes gave up a run in each of the first three innings before settling down and pitching four scoreless innings. He left the game with a two run lead, but the Minnesota bullpen failed to hold the lead, giving up five runs in the final two innings. Nonetheless, Huges is having an excellent season, with 15 wins, a 3.55 ERA, a 1.15 WHIP and a very impressive 165:15 K:BB ratio. His 165 strikeouts tie his career best when he was with the Yankees in 2012.

Hughes allowed a home run to Nick Hundley, but Trevor Plouffe's error prevented it from counting against Hughes. The former Yankee has enjoyed his time in Minnesota, going 15-9 with a 3.54 ERA. He'll see the Angels his next time out.
