  • Brandon Hughes Hopes To Pitch Monday

    Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Brandon Hughes (knee) is hoping to get back into a Cactus League game on Monday after throwing a bullpen session on Friday. Hughes had his left knee drained up to three times this spring and also had a cortisone injection earlier this week. His knee injury was affecting his performances this spring, as evidenced by his 6.75 ERA in only four innings of work. The young reliever had meniscus surgery in 2015 and has dealt with arthritis in his knee ever since. For now, the cortisone shot has Hughes feeling "much better," but the safe bet is that he starts the season on the injured list, with either Mark Leiter Jr. or Ryan Borucki taking his place on the Opening Day roster.

  • Brandon Hughes Hoping To Avoid Injured List Stint

    Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Brandon Hughes (knee) is dealing with a left knee issue and hasn't pitched since March 16, but the team is hoping he can get back on the mound this weekend. The hope is that Hughes will avoid an injured list stint to begin the 2023 season, but he's been dealing with the injury for most of camp and it's likely why he's looked off this spring. In just four innings pitched in the Cactus League, the 27-year-old left-hander has allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking three and striking out two. Even if Hughes is able to return to the mound this weekend in a game setting, he could be forced to open the year on the injured list.
