Reds Sign RHP Jared Hughes To A 2-Year Deal

Published

on

The Reds have signed RHP Jared Hughes to a 2-year deal with a club option for 2020.

The Reds are very familiar with Hughes, as he has spent his entire career in the National League Central. Hughes made his MLB debut in 2011 with Pittsburgh, and he remained a mainstay in their bullpen from 2011-2016.

Hughes pitched in 67 games for Milwaukee in 2017, posting a 3.02 ERA in 59.2 innings. He only gave up 4 home runs on the season, which will be well-received in Reds country. Cincinnati’s pitching staff gave up the most home runs in baseball in 2017.

Hughes is a veteran pitcher with a career ERA of 2.85. He brings much-needed stability to a Reds pitching staff that was simply dreadful last season. They are looking to bridge the gap between their starters and RHP Raisel Iglesias, and they hope that Hughes will help them fill that gap.

The Cincinnati Reds are finalizing a trade with the New York Yankees for veteran starting pitcher Sonny Gray.

The trade, which would send second base prospect Shed Long and a draft pick to New York, has hit a delay as the Reds try to work out a long-term deal with Gray.

As the trade drags on, it is possible that the Yankees could run out of patience and deal Gray elsewhere.

According to MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand, the Yankees had received multiple offers from teams for Gray as of last Friday, so if the deal with the Reds fall through, they have other options.
