Hughes Will Notch 200+ Strikeouts
Sure, he’s never done it. Sure, it’s tough, but I believe in Phil Hughes. Hughes was only 14 strikeouts away from the plateau in 2014, so it’s not too far out of reach. It’ll be hard for Hughes to better his first season with the Twins, but it might just happen.
My co-editor doesn’t think it will be Hughes leading the way with strikeouts. It’s probably someone you won’t expect.
