Twins complete deal for pitcher Hughes

The Minnesota Twins formally announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Phil Hughes to a three-year, $24 million contract on Thursday.

The team and the pitcher agreed to the deal on Saturday.

The 27-year-old will join a revamped starting rotation that includes Ricky Nolasco, who signed a four-year, $49 million contract earlier in the week.

After going 16-13 with a 4.23 ERA in 2012 with the Yankees, Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA in 2013, surrendering 170 hits in 145 2/3 innings. He is 56-50 with a 4.54 ERA in his career.
