Twins claim Hughes off waivers

By: Kelly Thesier/MLB.com

MINNEAPOLIS – The Twins have added another experienced arm to their bullpen competition this spring, claiming left-hander Dusty Hughes off waivers from the Royals on Wednesday.

Hughes, 28, was 1-3 with a 3.83 ERA, 24 walks and 34 strikeouts over 56 1/3 innings for the Royals in 2010. He pitched in 57 games last season, which gave him the second highest number of appearances among rookies in the American League. The left-hander, who was an 11th round pick by the Royals in 2003, was designated for assignment by Kansas City on Jan. 20.

To make room for Hughes on the 40-man roster, the Twins have designated right-handed pitcher Rob Delaney for assignment. Delaney made one appearance for the Twins last season, giving up a run on two hits in one inning. He was 7-9 with a 4.73 ERA in 61 appearances with Triple-A Rochester in 2010.
