Hughes developed an issue with the fingernail on his right index finger during Tuesday's start which limited the use of his curveball, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "I always cut my nail before a start,Ē Hughes said. "If my index fingernail gets too long, I can't spike the curveball. I have to make sure it's pretty short. I just cut it too short, and the skin just peeled back a little bit on the other side of it. It didnít spring up until the fifth inning."
Willingham (hand) had a CT scan that revealed a small fracture in the pisiform bone in his hand, but the Twins are hopeful that he won't need more than the 15-day minimum on the disabled list, Fox Sports North's Tyler Mason reports.
