Hughes has a 15:10 K:BB with 25 hits and 11 runs over 21.2 innings this season.

EDGE Analysis

The issues that bothered the long-time Pittsburgh reliever followed him to Milwaukee this year as he continues to struggle to keep his walks in check. When he's not missing outside of the zone and walking batters, he's missing in it and allowing hitters to bat .342 on balls put in play with a .482 slugging percentage. In all, the lack of control has led his ERA to jump from his 3.03 mark last season to 4.57 this year, making the right-hander a risky play for owners in leagues both small and deep.

Hughes recorded the final two outs of Friday's 7-4 win over the Mets to notch his first save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

Corey Knebel is still expected to get the first crack at replacing Neftali Feliz in the closer role over the long haul, but with Knebel having thrown 41 pitches the night before the door was open for Hughes to get a save chance. Given the 31-year-old's weak 5:7 K:BB through 13.2 innings, it might end up being Hughes' last save in 2017 as well.

Hughes has a 3.60 ERA through 10 innings of relief to start the season.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes threw 5.1 innings of scoreless ball until April 15. Since then, the 31-year-old has stumbled, yielding four runs over 4.2 innings. Of his 10 appearances this season, Hughes has entered with a lead only twice.

Hughes signed a one-year contract with the Brewers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

He'll be included on the team's Opening Day roster and will presumably be used in the middle innings to begin the season. The 31-year-old had a rough spring training, but the Brewers have witnessed first hand the solid job he's done the last few seasons for the divisional rival Pirates. The 3.03 ERA Hughes posted in 2016 was actually his highest mark in the last three years.

Hughes agreed to a contract with the Brewers on Saturday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

The deal is pending a physical, but Hughes is set to join the Brewers a mere three days after being released by the Pirates. He had a tough spring and allowed 12 runs off 16 hits and four walks over 9.1 innings (10 games), but has been spectacular in recent seasons. Over the last three years, Hughes has averaged a 2.41 ERA and 1.27 WHIP while limiting the opposition to 0.7 HR/9.

Hughes was placed on release waivers by the Pirates on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes has been a fairly consistent member of the Pirates bullpen over the past few years, posting an ERA well below 3.00 two out of those three years. However, a disastrous spring showing forced the Pirates to cut ties with him, although his major league experience and past success could make him an appealing option for a good number of big league clubs. That being said, he doesn't strike out enough batters to warrant much fantasy interest even if he does land a major league deal again.

Hughes agreed to a one-year, $2.825 million contract with the Pirates on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

He missed the first month of 2016 with a back injury and finished with just four holds in 67 appearances after racking up 21 holds in 2015, as the Pirates used him primarily in low-leverage spots. Hughes' ratios have gotten progressively worse in recent seasons and his 4.68 FIP from last year suggests his ERA could have been a lot worse.

Hughes was credited with his first save after pitching three innings of three-hit, scoreless ball in Saturday's 12-6 victory over the Cubs. He also struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran reliever brought some stability to a high-scoring affair, shutting out the Cubs over the final three frames to earn his first save in three opportunities this season. The outing was the fifth consecutive scoreless one for Hughes, who's lowered his ERA from 4.71 to 3.34 over that stretch.

Hughes will not be available out of the bullpen for the Pirates on Thursday, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hughes has pitched in five of seven games since coming off the DL, compiling 4.2 scoreless innings and one hold. Ryan Vogelsong will likely fill Hughes' role Thursday.

Hughes made his 2016 debut Sunday, allowing one unearned run in one inning against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Cincinnati took advantage of a pair of Pittsburgh errors. Hughes pitched well despite completing a somewhat sketchy minor-league rehab stint. Expect Hughes to pitch in high-leverage situations in need of a ground ball out between the fifth and seventh innings going forward.
