Twins sign Phil Hughes

The Minnesota Twins pitching extravaganza is not done yet with the signing of Phil Hughes according to La Velle Neal of the Minnesota Star-Tribune 

Hughes, 27 suffered through an awful 2013 with a 4-14 record and a 5.19 ERA but a FIP of 4.50 means he should have been a much better pitcher and a .324 BABIP means he had some bad luck. He has suffered through a 4.65 ERA in his last 103 starts dating back to 2010.

Overall I do not think this will be a good move for the Twins unless this deal has an option because Hughes has struggled in recent seasons and although his struggles has been due to bad luck his strikeout numbers have been decreasing while his walks have been increasing.
