MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Phil Hughes has been named most valuable player and pitcher of the year for the Minnesota Twins in 2014.

Hughes set a major league record for strikeout-to-walk ratio and posted a 3.52 ERA in 32 starts, his first season with the Twins. The awards voted on by the Twin Cities chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America were announced Thursday.

Other winners include Brian Duensing (community service), Danny Santana (outstanding rookie), Eduardo Escobar (most improved), Ron Gardenhire (media cooperation), Brian Dozier (defensive player), catcher Kurt Suzuki (leadership) and Pat Neshek (Upper Midwest player).
