2014

2013

To say that Hughes is a one-pitch pony would discount his effectiveness, but it's not far from the truth. Hughes primarily used a sinking fastball to coax groundballs (59.6 percent rate) out of batters en route to a 2.85 ERA in 75.2 innings. His 4.05 FIP suggests he was a little lucky. It's possible the team could turn him into its next closer -- he saved a pair of games in 2012 -- but his ability to pitch multiple innings might make the former starter better suited for setup duty. Hughes is a work in progress when it comes to holding baserunners on -- opponents went 17-for-17 stealing bases against him. If and when the league figures out his sinking fastball, he might encounter additional difficulties retiring batters as he has no other reliable pitch.

2012

After five and a half years of mediocre minor league showings, something clicked for the 26-year-old righty. Hughes compiled a 2.11 ERA in 42.2 Triple-A innings before making his major league debut in September. The 6-foot-7 giant throws fairly hard (92.9 mph fastball) but really benefits from a quirky delivery. He showed off good mound presence in high-leverage situations and will get a chance in 2012 to build upon his decent major league start. He'll compete for a sixth-inning role with the Bucs in spring training.
