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 have placed Joey Votto on the 10-day disabled list due to a right knee contusion that he suffered last week when he was hit near the knee by Washington Nationals pitcher Ryan Madson in what has been viewed as intentional.

After the hit, Votto limped to first base as he barked at Madson, who appeared to be retaliating for the plunking of National players, such as Bryce Harper.

The trip to the disabled list will mark the first one for Votto since 2014, and he is posting a .284/.422/.419 batting line this season.
