Does Hughes specifically need to be removed or can it be another player?

Options are measured in years. If a player is optioned to the minors, and that player remains in the minors on optional assignment for 20+ days, they use an option year. During that year they can be sent back and forth between the majors and minors as much as possible.

Take Daniel Moskos, for example. He has already used an option this year. The Pirates can call him up and send him down as often as they want, and he’ll only use one option this year.

Seems stupid to waste an option on a guy just for one game.
