July: Phil Hughes Is Named An All Star

Last season, Phil Hughes had a record breaking season when it came to his strikeout to walk ratio. While it may be hard to him to match those numbers, he should be expected to be better as a whole. It wasn’t a fluke that Hughes was so dominant for the Twins last season. Getting away from Yankees Stadium was a huge benefit, and Hughes was actually better on the road than at Target Field in 2014. He should be more consistent throughout the season as a whole in 2015, and he looked the part of a Cy Young candidate at points last season. Look for him to make an appearance during the midsummer classic in Cincinnati.
