He spent the 2007 season with Hickory. He spent the 2008 season with the Lynchburg Hillcats and the Altoona Curve. In 2009, Hughes pitched for the Gulf Coast League Pirates and Altoona. In 2010, Hughes pitched for Altoona. Hughes started the 2011 season in the Altoona rotation, but was promoted and moved to the bullpen with the Triple-A Indianapolis Indians.

When Hughes was promoted to the majors in September 2011, he became the 41st major leaguer in Long Beach State history.[3] He appeared in 12 games, going 0-1.

On April 25, 2012, Hughes was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis. A day later he was optioned back but recalled again on May 1. On August 12, Hughes was optioned back to Indianapolis to make room for Juan Cruz coming off the Disabled list. He was recalled again on August 14.

In 2014 Hughes played in 63 games and went 7-5 and setting a career low 1.96 ERA.
