Phillies claim RHP Hughes off waivers from Reds

The Philadelphia Phillies claimed right-handed reliever Jared Hughes off waivers from the Cincinnati Reds on Thursday.

Hughes, 34, was 3-4 with one save and a 4.10 ERA in 47 games for the Reds this year, including a 1.93 ERA in 26 road games.

In 10 appearances against National League East opponents this season, the 6-foot-7 Hughes has posted a 1.88 ERA while holding hitters to a .188 batting average.

Hughes has a career record of 27-23 with 12 saves and a 2.83 ERA in 499 games for the Pittsburgh Pirates (2011-16), Milwaukee Brewers (2017) and Reds (2018-19).

Over the last eight seasons (2012-19), Hughes has appeared in the third-most games (487) among NL relievers behind Tony Watson (553) and Kenley Jansen (512).

To make room on the 40-man roster, right-hander Edubray Ramos was moved to the 60-day injured list with a right shoulder impingement.
