Can Luke Hughes win the 2nd base job?
With Spring Training now well under way thoughts are turning to the opening day rosters. With the Twins there seems to be 4 bench spots available and Luke Hughes should get one of them according to Fergus Falls Journal’s Tom Grout.
If he recovers from a shoulder injury, which I think he has been doing, one spot would go to Luke Hughes. Hughes doesn’t have any options left so sending him down would mean he more than likely would get picked up by another team.
Hughes has some pop in his bat and can play 1st, 2nd, or 3rd so he would be the utility guy and some, like myself, wouldn’t mind if he won the starting 2nd base job.
