  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Recalled, opening Wednesday

    The Diamondbacks recalled Hughes from Triple-A Reno on Wednesday. He'll serve as Arizona's opening pitcher for the team's series finale in Los Angeles versus the Dodgers, Jesse Friedman of reports.

    Hughes allowed four earned runs in 2.2 innings during his first stint with Arizona earlier this month, but he's thrown five innings of one-run ball since returning to Triple-A. The 28-year-old lefty is likely to only pitch an inning or two Wednesday before giving way to Ryne Nelson, who is expected to pitch the bulk of innings out of the bullpen.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Sent to Triple-A

    Hughes was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Sunday.

    Hughes joined the big-league roster at the end of April and started out with two scoreless appearances, but he surrendered four runs while recording just one out Saturday versus the Padres. Ryne Nelson (elbow) was activated from the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Serves as opener Tuesday

    Hughes worked a scoreless inning as the Diamondbacks' opening pitcher in Tuesday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Dodgers, allowing one hit while striking out two.

    Hughes had his contract purchased from Triple-A Reno earlier in the day then found out he was starting 45 minutes before first pitch, per Alex Weiner of Arizona Sports. The left-hander was the first of seven pitchers in what became a bullpen day caused by a delay. A 6:40 pm scheduled start turned into an 8:35 pm start after a colony of bees settled atop the protective netting behind home plate. Arizona's scheduled starter, Jordan Montgomery, was scratched and is expected to start Wednesday.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Added to roster

    The Diamondbacks selected Hughes' contract from Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Hughes had a terrific rookie season with the Cubs in 2022 but has struggled since then partly due to nagging knee issues. He's healthy now, though, and earned a promotion after allowing four runs (three earned) over 14.2 frames with Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Sent to minor-league camp

    The Diamondbacks reassigned Hughes to minor-league camp Thursday.

    Hughes finished the 2023 season on the Cubs' 60-day injured list while he recovered from left knee surgery, but since he was making minor-league rehab appearances in September, he seemingly entered the offseason with a clean bill of health. After the Cubs non-tendered him in November, Hughes caught on with the Diamondbacks on a minor-league deal in free agency and turned in a 2.45 ERA while striking out five over 3.2 innings through his four Cactus League appearances. Though Hughes' solid spring wasn't enough to help him secure a spot in Arizona's Opening Day bullpen, he could be in the mix for a promotion to the big club if he continues to excel at Triple-A Reno early in the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Brandon Hughes: Invited to D-backs camp

    Hughes signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday and received an invitation to major-league spring training.

    Hughes holds a 3.91 ERA and 1.19 WHIP in the majors since debuting in 2022, but he surrendered 11 earned runs in just 13.2 innings last season before undergoing season-ending knee surgery in June. The 28-year-old southpaw will now get a chance to redeem himself in the spring, and he could become an important part of Arizona's bullpen if he returns to his 2022 form.

  • Brandon Hughes: Heads to free agency

    Hughes (knee) was non-tendered by the Cubs on Friday.

    Hughes allowed 11 earned runs over 13.2 innings this past year with Chicago before requiring season-ending knee surgery in June. He should be 100 percent by the spring but is now a free agent and may have to find a new home.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Slated for normal offseason

    Hughes (knee) is expected to have a normal throwing progression this offseason, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hughes was limited to just 17 appearances this season due to a knee issue that eventually required surgery, but he'll go into the offseason without any restrictions. Adbert Alzolay looks like the early favorite to open 2024 as the Cubs' closer, but Hughes should be used in high-leverage spots if he can stay healthy and return to his 2022 form.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Begins rehab assignment

    Hughes (knee) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hughes has been on the injured list since June while recovering from a procedure on his left knee. He began throwing off a mound Aug. 15 and started facing hitters again Monday, and he's now set for the final stage of his recovery process. Hughes will likely need to make multiple appearances in the minors before returning to Chicago's bullpen.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Faces hitters Monday

    Hughes (knee) threw a live batting practice session Monday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    The Cubs relayed that Hughes' throwing session went well, but the club has yet to reveal whether the southpaw is ready to take the next step in his recovery from left knee surgery, which would be pitching in minor-league rehab games. Hughes had the knee procedure in June and will likely require several outings in the minors to get fully ramped up before the Cubs are comfortable adding him back to their bullpen.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Hughes (knee) threw a successful bullpen session Monday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hughes is scheduled for another mound workout later this week. He could be an option again for the Cubs' bullpen sometime in September if he is able to avoid setbacks in his recovery from June knee surgery.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Playing catch again

    The Cubs announced Sunday that Hughes (knee) has resumed playing catch, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hughes is in the early phase of his throwing program as he works his way back from the left knee alignment surgery he underwent in late June. Since he opted for a debridement procedure rather than a reconstructive one, Hughes will have a chance to pitch again in 2023, though his return from the 60-day injured list shouldn't be viewed as imminent. A target date for when Hughes might be activated likely won't emerge until he's facing hitters again.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Undergoes surgery

    Hughes underwent surgical debridement of his left knee Wednesday, Bruce Levine of reports.

    Hughes was originally slated for season-ending knee alignment surgery, but the debridement will significantly reduce his recovery time. Hughes will begin his rehab process right away, though it is still unknown whether or not he'll be able to return before the end of the season.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Cubs transferred Hughes (knee) to the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    With Hughes set to undergo season-ending knee alignment surgery in the next few days, seeing him land on the 60-day IL is hardly a surprise. His transfer makes room on the 40-man roster for Jared Young to be selected from Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Out for season

    Hughes will undergo knee alignment surgery at the end of June and will be held out for the rest of the season, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Hughes has battled knee problems all season -- most recently landing on the injured list June 13 with left knee inflammation -- and the issue is apparently severe enough to warrant season-ending surgery. A move to the 60-day IL is certain to come eventually, and Hughes will end 2023 with a 7.24 ERA and 1.61 WHIP with a 17:8 K:BB through 13.2 frames.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Set to play catch

    Hughes (knee) will play catch Friday, Jared Wyllys of reports.

    Hughes made his third trip to the injured list earlier this week when he went down with left knee inflammation. It's a good sign that he's already able to throw, though, perhaps making it possible that he'll require only a minimum IL stay.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Back on IL with knee issue

    Hughes was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to June 12, with left knee inflammation, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    This is already the third IL stint of the year for Hughes, and they have all been related to left knee issues. He's struggled to a 7.24 ERA in 17 appearances for the Cubs when healthy.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Activated from injured list

    Hughes (knee) was activated Friday from the 15-day injured list, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    After recovering from another bout of left knee inflammation, Hughes will return to the Cubs' bullpen Friday night against the Twins. He's been limited to five appearances this year.

  • Cubs' Brandon Hughes: Completes extended bullpen session

    Hughes (knee) threw a 32-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hughes said he felt good during and after the workout, and the Cubs are expected to provide an update Thursday on the next step forward for the rehabbing reliever. He's made only five major-league appearances this season due to lingering left knee inflammation.
