Brewers signed RHP Jared Hughes to a one-year contract.

Hughes was cut loose by the Pirates last week but quickly landed on his feet. He'll work in middle relief for the Brew Crew.
Apr 2 - 12:47 PM's Mark Feinsand reports the Brewers are "closing in" on a deal with Jared Hughes.

The deal will be complete after Hughes passes a physical. Hughes was released by Pittsburgh on Friday following a dismal spring training. Despite his recent struggles, the ground-ball specialists holds an impressive 2.41 ERA over his last three seasons. He'll occupy a middle relief role in Milwaukee.
Apr 1 - 11:07 PM

Pirates released RHP Jared Hughes.

Hughes doesn't miss bats (career 5.5 K/9 rate), but he boasts a career 2.82 ERA over six seasons out of the Pirates' bullpen and induces lots of grounders. He won't be out of a job long, especially now that he can be had at the veteran minimum.
Mar 31 - 2:09 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Pirates have placed Jared Hughes on release waivers.

Hughes has really struggled this spring, allowing 15 runs (12 earned) on 16 hits and four walks over 9 1/3 innings. The 31-year-old has compiled a 2.41 ERA over the past three seasons and induces plenty of ground balls, but he has averaged just 5.0 K/9 in that time. He's under contract for $2.825 million this season.
Mar 29 - 12:58 PM

Pirates and RHP Jared Hughes avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year, $2.825 million contract.

He made $2.175 million in 2016. Hughes has been one of the best middle relievers in baseball the last few years. He posted a 3.03 ERA in 59 1/3 innings last year and has a nifty 2.82 career ERA in 313 games. Despite his run-prevention skills the ground-ball specialist is not the sort of high-strikeout relief ace that generates a lot of holds or saves. He will continue to be a key part of the Pirates' bullpen nonetheless.
Jan 12 - 10:19 PM

Pirates activated RHP Jared Hughes from the 15-day disabled list.

The right-hander has been sidelined since the spring with a strained lat, but is now fully recovered and ready to go. He'll work in his traditional middle relief role for the Pirates.

Jared Hughes (lat) is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Hughes is with the club in Pittsburgh now, but they evidently want to give him at least a couple days of rest after he went two innings in his final rehab appearance Wednesday. He got a late start to the season due to a strained lat.

Jared Hughes (lat) allowed three runs on five hits over two innings Wednesday in a rough minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hughes also got hammered on Sunday with Triple-A Indy and will probably be asked to make at least one more appearance on the farm before activation. The right-hander has been out since the end of spring training because of a left lat strain. He owns a sharp 2.12 ERA in 131 1/3 innings since the beginning of the 2014 campaign.
Thu, Apr 28, 2016 08:02:00 AM

Jared Hughes (lat) is scheduled to pitch two innings Monday for Triple-A Indianapolis.

Hughes had to be scratched from a scheduled rehab outing last week due to flu-like symptoms, but he's feeling better now. If all goes smoothly from here, the right-hander could be cleared to join the Pirates' bullpen early next week. He has been out since the end of spring training because of a left lat strain.

Jared Hughes (lat) won't begin a rehab assignment on Wednesday due to illness.

He should be recovered from the bug by the end of the week. Hughes landed on the 15-day disabled list just before Opening Day with a left lat strain. He's likely to be ready for activation late next week.
Tue, Apr 19, 2016 06:20:00 PM

Jared Hughes (lat) will begin his minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Hughes was originally expected to make his first appearance on Tuesday, but it was pushed back a day due to a bout with the flu. The plan calls for him to pitch on back-to-back days, so he's not far off from joining the Pirates. The 30-year-old was forced to begin the season on the disabled list due to a left (non-throwing) lat strain.
Tue, Apr 19, 2016 11:21:00 AM

Jared Hughes (lat) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.

Hughes is making his way back from a strain to his left (non-throwing) lat. He shouldn't need more than a couple rehab appearances before being activated.
Sun, Apr 17, 2016 11:11:00 AM

Jared Hughes (lat) threw a live batting practice simulated game at Advanced-A Bradenton on Wednesday.

Hughes continues to slowly work his way back from a left lat straight suffered near the end of spring training. Last week, he threw off the slope of the mound. The 30-year-old took a step forward on Wednesday with his live BP work. The trainer on hand indicated that "initial reports are positive." Hughes could return to action by the end of the month.
Wed, Apr 13, 2016 04:53:00 PM

Jared Hughes (lat) threw off the slope of the mound on Wednesday.

Of note, Hughes threw off the slope of the mound rather than the rubber. The 30-year-old right-hander was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left lat strain retroactive to March 25 after being waylaid by the injury near the tail-end of spring training. Head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk addressed his recovery, noting, "Early indication is that is body is responding well. The next step is to get him [pitching] off the mound in the near future."
