Victor Black was pretty bad while here, giving up two runs in 4.0 innings.
He also allowed three of his four inherited runners to score, much to the chagrin of Jeanmar Gomez.
Hughes wasn’t exactly much better this season so the applause on Twitter seems to be a bit overstated. Kind of like when Jose Contreras was called up.
Hughes isn’t some sort of savior. He is a better option than Black in the short term though and his addition, while nothing major at all, gives the Bucs another fresh arm that can potentially pitch multiple innings.
