Publish date:

The line drive that sent Twins starting pitcher Phil Hughes to ground in immense amounts of pain earlier this week is going to keep him on the disabled for up to two months.

Word from Fox Sports North's Marney Gellner is that Hughes suffered a broken bone above his knee and he'll miss 6-8 weeks. The Pioneer Press says it's a compaction fracture above his left knee.
