Analysis: A person with knowledge of the deal tells The Associated Press the two sides came to agreement late Saturday night. The person requested anonymity because Hughes still has to pass a physical before the contract can become official. Hughes went 4-14 with a 5.19 ERA last season for the New York Yankees. The Twins are hoping the 27-year-old will fare better in pitcher-friendly Target Field than he did pitching in hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium.
