BOSTON (AP) — Right-hander Phil Hughes has been activated from the 10-day disabled list by the Minnesota Twins.
The 31-year-old Hughes had been on the DL since complaining of a "dead feeling" in his pitching shoulder on May 21.
A 36-year-old who threw 14 innings in the majors last season had the most interesting offseason in baseball.
Craig Breslow, the former Red Sox left-handed reliever and a free agent, still has a lot of work to do.
BOSTON (AP) — First-time starter Craig Breslow and six relievers combined on a five-hitter and the Boston Red Sox beat Baltimore 8-0 Saturday, further denting the Orioles' slim playoff hopes.
A day after Boston journeyman Rich Hill blanked Baltimore on a two-hitter, the Red Sox emptied their bullpen.
