Twins signed RHP Phil Hughes to a three-year, $24 million contract.

Jim Bowden of SiriusXM reports that Hughes can also earn an addition $1 million per season in "reachable" bonuses. Hughes is coming off a season with the Yankees where he posted a 5.19 ERA, but the Twins are obviously banking on his flyball tendencies fitting in much better at Target Field.

Seung Hwan Oh said he felt renewed discomfort in his groin in the ninth inning Wednesday.

Oh was pulled after trying to field a comebacker off the bat of Jose Peraza in the top of the ninth inning. He spun to throw after picking up the ball and did not look comfortable in that process. This could be the end of the road for the impressive South Korean rookie, assuming the Cardinals can't climb back into a National League Wild Card spot. They fell 2-1 to the lowly Reds on Wednesday night.

Anthony DeSclafani worked six innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a win over the Cardinals.

The only run St. Louis managed the entire night came on a doubleplay groundout in the bottom of the fifth inning by pinch-hitter Matt Adams, scoring Aledmys Diaz from third base. DeSclafani struck out three and walked two, yielding six total hits. He finishes the 2016 regular season with a promising 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 105/30 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 innings.

Francisco Liriano turned in a gem on Wednesday, striking out 10 batters while firing 6 1/3 shutout frames but had to settle for a no-decision against the Orioles.

He left the game with a 2-0 lead but watched as his closer coughed up the lead and the game in the ninth inning. Perhaps most impressively for him, he issued only one free pass on the night. This is the guy who is second in the major leagues in walks allowed this year. After putting up a 5.46 ERA with the Pirates he has registered a 2.92 ERA since being dumped on the Blue Jays. Overall he is 8-13 with a 4.69 ERA in 29 starts and two relief appearances. He has 168 strikeouts and 85 walks in 163 innings.

John Jaso hit for the cycle in Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Cubs.

Jaso singled to lead off the third inning, socked a three-run home run in the fourth, notched an RBI double in the fifth and polished off his cycle with an RBI triple in the seventh. He finished the game 4-for-4 with five RBI at the dish. For the season as a whole, Jaso is hitting .267/.348/.407 with seven homers and 40 RBI across 371 at-bats.

Jake Arrieta was hit hard in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Pirates, yielding seven earned runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Arrieta has turned in a strong 2016 campaign on the whole, but his final start of the regular season left much to be desired. The Pirates burned the ace right-hander for a run in the first inning, then posted three-run frames in the fourth and fifth to drive him from the game. Arrieta finishes out the season holding a 3.10 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 190/76 K/BB ratio over 197 1/3 innings. The postseason now awaits as the Cubs attempt to bring a cathartic end to their title drought.

Chris Coghlan left Wednesday's game against the Pirates due to a mild left ankle sprain.

Coghlan injured himself when he ran into the outfield wall while tracking a fly ball in the fifth inning. He was subsequently replaced in left field by Albert Almora, but looks like he has avoided major injury. Consider Coghlan day-to-day moving forward.

Hyun-Jin Ryu underwent an arthroscopic left elbow debridement procedure on Wednesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Prior to the procedure, Ryu had been pitching in simulated games as he attempted to work his way back from left elbow tendinitis. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017 season, but there's obviously nothing guaranteed here. The 29-year-old southpaw has made just one appearance over the last two years due to various shoulder, groin, and elbow injuries.

Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that manager Mike Matheny is safe.

There is near-constant clamoring from fans (and some in the media) about Matheny's lineups, bullpen management, and in-game strategy, but the Cardinals' higher-ups seem content with the fifth-year manager. "Mike’s done a really good job for us," DeWitt said. "There’s no thought that we’re going to go in any different direction." Matheny has guided the Cardinals to the postseason every year on the job, and they're in Wild Card contention here in late September. Matheny's overall managerial record since taking over for Hall of Fame skipper Tony La Russa is 457-348.
Sep 28 - 8:12 PM

Albert Pujols (foot) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's.

Pujols has not played since Monday due to discomfort in his foot related to plantar fasciitis. Mike Trout will serve as the Angels' designated hitter on Wednesday while C.J. Cron mans first base. It is possible the veteran Pujols won't play again this season, but that has not yet been determined for certain.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Neftali Feliz (arm) is almost certainly done for the 2016 season.

No surprise here. Feliz was just recently cleared to throw off of flat ground as he continues to rehab from a bout of right arm discomfort. With mere days remaining in the regular season, a return to the major league mound would have been miraculous. The 28-year-old right-hander finishes out the 2016 season holding a 3.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/21 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 frames.
Sep 28 - 6:46 PM

Adrian Gonzalez (sinus infection) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Gonzalez was lifted midway through Tuesday's contest due to a sinus infection. The ailment was not burdensome enough to require an additional day off, though. He is batting in his customary fourth spot on Wednesday.
