MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins and right-hander Phil Hughes have agreed to a $58 million, five-year contract that adds $42 million in guaranteed money from 2017-19.

The Twins announced the deal today.

The 28-year-old went 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA in his first season with Minnesota and led the major leagues among qualifying pitchers with an 11.63 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He had been scheduled to make $8 million each of the next two seasons as part of a $24 million, three-year contract he signed as a free agent after leaving the New York Yankees.

He will make $9.2 million in each of the next two years and $13.2 million annually from 2017-19.
