Athletics-Twins Preview

(AP) -- The Minnesota Twins are the hottest team in the AL Central, and that's been without much help from staff ace Phil Hughes.

The Oakland Athletics don't figure to grant Hughes any favors on Monday night when they look to continue their offensive dominance in Minnesota.

Hughes (0-4, 4.55 ERA) earned a five-year contract after going 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA in a career-high 209 2-3 innings last season, but has failed to impress thus far in 2015. The Twins (13-12) have dropped all five of Hughes' starts this season, and due to a left hip flexor strain, Hughes lasted a season-low five innings while allowing three runs and seven hits in a 10-7 loss to Detroit on Wednesday.
