News: Hughes was tendered a contract offer prior to Tuesday's deadline.
Impact: He'll look to build upon a strong 2014 during which he registered a 1.96 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 64.1 innings. Hughes gets by with one good pitch -- a sinking fastball -- and he's looked upon more as a multi-inning reliever than as a late-innings guy. His 3.99 FIP in 2014 nearly matched his career mark of 4.00.
