Hughes will switch to using a curveball as his primary offspead pitch this season from the slider he used last year, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "We've seen him get in a pattern where he's going hard-hard," pitching coach Rick Anderson said. "If he gets [his curveball] going, and we're working on a changeup a little bit, the change of speeds makes him better. If he uses the other pitches to slow the ball down, it helps his [faster] stuff."
The Twins would like to see Presley, who enters spring training as the leading candidate to start in center field, attempt more stolen bases. "The one thing that we talked about is he needs to be a little more aggressive [with] baserunning," manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB.com. "We kind of like that no-fear type thing. ... He was a little more cautious than we like to see as far as attempting to steal. We give them the green light and we just want to see him be a little more aggressive this year."
