McHugh was removed from Sunday's start after just four innings due to a finger injury, which was termed a "right middle fingernal avulsion," with his fingernail being pulled away from the skin of his finger.

Collin McHugh shooting himself in the foot


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/7/2014) If not for a dominant start June 25 against the Braves in which he recorded nine strikeouts in seven innings, Collin McHugh probably wouldn't be owned in 54 percent of leagues. While his overall numbers still look good, he hasn't had anything else to hang his hat on since early June. Over his last six starts, he has a 4.45 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and -- here's the killer -- 5.3 walks per nine innings.

Still more than a strikeout per inning, but the Braves are partially to credit for that. They strike out against everybody. Plus, the strikeouts work with the walks to drive up McHugh's pitch count, limiting his quality starts and leaving the bullpen to pick up his victories -- that is, when he pitches well enough to put it in position to do so.

Of course, a six-start trend doesn't condemn a pitcher to being a certain way forever and ever, but for a pitcher who came out of nowhere like McHugh did this year, it's reason for suspicion.

The odds are against him making a significant Fantasy impact pitching for the Astros anyway, so you might want to look into other options.


Collin McHugh leaves with finger problem


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Astros starter Collin McHugh left Sunday's game against the Angels after four innings due to a finger injury. The team said McHugh suffered a "right middle fingernail avulsion," adding the fingernail was "pulled away from the skin."

McHugh allowed four hits and three runs, two earned, as his ERA rose to 3.28. He struck out four and walked two.


Collin McHugh victimized by three home runs in loss Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/30/2014) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh was saddled with a loss Monday, giving up five earned runs on five hits and four walks in six innings while striking out eight in his team's 10-4 defeat against the Mariners.

McHugh (4-7) had been stingy with the long ball coming into Monday's start, giving up five home runs in 72 1/3 innings, but he surrendered three home runs in his loss, with all five runs scoring on the homers. Despite taking four straight losses, the pitcher still owns a 3.22 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 89:31 K:BB ratio in 78 1/3 innings. McHugh is scheduled to face the Angels Saturday.


Collin McHugh strikes out nine in loss vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Houston pitcher's offense was unable to pick up the slack, but McHugh has surrendered three earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts. He owns a 2.86 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 81:27 K:BB ratio in 72 1/3 innings. McHugh is schedule to square off with the Mariners Monday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

McHugh has not allowed an earned run in three of his last five starts. He owns a 2.76 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in 11 starts (65 1/3 innings). He will look to get back in the win column Wednesday at home against Atlanta.

Collin McHugh gets roughed up in loss to Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Collin McHugh makes statement in win


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Prior to his last start, I wrote I had come around to Collin McHugh, but even then, I expressed concern that the element of surprise might be having some say in his success, pointing out that the only team to rough him up (Seattle) was the only one to face him a second time.

That changed in Tuesday's start, his second against the Angels, who he had faced just two weeks prior. After limiting them to two runs in seven innings May 21, he shut them out over five Tuesday, giving up just two hits with two walks and four strikeouts.

Clearly, there's something to the arsenal change he made this season, abandoning a pitch-to-countact sinkerball approach for a power fastball-slider combo. He's striking out more than a batter per inning and hasn't had any real control issues.

Frankly, I don't know what more we need to see.


Collin McHugh tosses five scoreless innings in win Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh earned a win Tuesday, giving up two hits and two walks in five scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 7-2 win over the Angels.

McHugh (4-3) delivered excellent numbers overall, but he labored through too many batters early in the game, exiting after just five innings due to having already thrown 97 pitches. He owns a 2.52 ERA and 54:14 K:BB ratio in 50 innings after posting back-to-back scoreless outings. McHugh is slated to square off with the Twins Sunday.


Time to give Collin McHugh his due


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/28/2014) I've been quick to dismiss Collin McHugh during this latest stint in the big leagues even though the results have been dramatically different from previous stints.

I get why they're different. He's a completely different pitcher now, emphasizing his fastball and slider with more of a swing-and-miss mentality than he had as a sinkerballer. Still, with so little to show for himself in either the majors or minors, I figured this new version of McHugh was simply taking the league by surprise and that the word would be out soon enough.

Seven starts in, the word still isn't out. In fact, he had one of his best starts yet Tuesday, recording nine strikeouts in seven shutout innings against a Royals team that doesn't normally strike out much.

I remain skeptical given his lack of track record, poor pedigree and fact that his worst start came against the only team he's faced more than once (Seattle), but there's a difference between being skeptical and being obstinant.

My newest ranking for McHugh -- 85th among starting pitchers in Head-to-Head points leagues -- gives credit where credit is due.
