Hughes Willing To Relieve In 2014

According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Phil Hughes is willing to sign as a reliever when he becomes a free agent after the season. When asked if being a reliever was off the table, Phil responded with the following...
“No. I mean, I feel like pitching at this level is a blessing in any way. So if teams value me as a starter, that’s great. If not, and that’s their opinion, we’ll see what happens. We will see how it shakes out.”
Hughes hasn't appeared in a game in a relief role since 2011, but his numbers in that spot are stellar. He has a 1.44 ERA and 0.905 WHIP in 56.1 innings out of the bullpen. Seeing that the Yankees will certainly be looking at bullpen help this offseason, the news that Hughes could go there greatly changes things.
