Analysis: An MRI test on Hughes revealed an impaction fracture on his femur, a tiny crack caused by a line drive by Miami's J.T. Realmuto that hit him Thursday. Initial X-rays on Hughes showed no break, but the 29-year-old needed help walking off the field after he was struck. He has plenty of swelling and will need crutches to move around in the meantime, but he won't need surgery.

Analysis: He's getting the assignment with Kyle Gibson having his return from the DL pushed back due to back stiffness. Hughes, 1-7 with a 5.74 ERA in 10 starts, will go to the bullpen once Gibson is ready and holds absolutely no fantasy value right now regardless of his role.
