Drafted in the 16th round (495th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2017
A three-year starter at Michigan State, Hughes has shown modest but steady improvement at the plate to go with a middle-of-the-diamond defensive profile. He's a plus runner who is an average defender in center. Hughes switch-hits and gets caught out on his front foot too frequently from both sides of the plate. He makes it work in college thanks to quick hands, but it leads some scouts to question how well he'll hit against tougher competition. Despite his size (6-foot-2, 215 pounds) he has below-average power, focusing more on getting on base than driving the ball.
