MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Phil Hughes has long been on Minnesota’s radar.

Thanks to a rough season by the right-hander in New York, the Twins finally added him to their roster.

“He probably wouldn’t be sitting here if he had an average year. So maybe this is a good omen for us,” Twins general manager Terry Ryan said, adding: “We’ve got hopes that with a change of scenery that we’re going to get him going in the right direction.”
