Sep. 25 3:28 PM PT4:28 PM MT5:28 PM CT6:28 PM ET18:28 ET22:28 GMT6:28 3:28 PM MST5:28 PM EST5:58 PM VEN2:28 UAE (+1)5:28 PM CT-Hughes turned down a chance to pitch again this weekend, even though one more out would have earned him a lucrative bonus. He would have gotten $500,000 if he reached 210 innings this year, but he is set to finish with 209 2-3 after a rain delay forced him out of his final scheduled start Wednesday.
Analysis: Manager Ron Gardenhire said Thursday the Twins were prepared to let Hughes pitch again before the end of the season. "I just didn't think it was right," Hughes said. "If I were fighting for a playoff spot, I'd 100 percent be available." Hughes went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA - with 186 strikeouts and only 16 walks. His strikeout-to-walk ratio of 11.63 will be a major league record, breaking the mark of 11.00 set by Bret Saberhagen of the New York Mets in 1994.

Analysis: Hughes (16-10, 3.52 ERA) finished his first year with the Twins with the same number of wins and walks. With 186 strikeouts, his 11.63 ratio became the best of all time for pitchers with a qualifying amount of innings. Hughes beat Bret Saberhagen, who had 143 strikeouts and 13 walks for the New York Mets in 1994 for an 11.00 ratio. Hughes struck out five without a walk and allowed only a sacrifice fly by David Peralta in the sixth on Wednesday.

Analysis: White Sox slugger Adam Dunn led off the fourth with a sharp chopper right back at Hughes. The starter had no chance to get out of the way before it plunked him on his ankle, and Hughes was immediately stunned by the impact. However, Hughes is expected to make his next scheduled start.
