News: Hughes agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.075 million with Pittsburgh, avoiding arbitration, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Impact: A 1.96 ERA in 64.1 innings last year belied his 3.99 FIP. Pittsburgh seems content to use Hughes as a middle-inning reliever, limiting his fantasy usefulness. The 29-year-old finished 2014 with seven relief wins, 13 holds, and two blown saves.
