Collin McHugh goes six strong in win over Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh stayed sharp with another a quality outing Sunday against the Red Sox, scattering one run on seven hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings of an 8-1 victory.

McHugh improved to 6-9 on the year. He has allowed one earned run in each of his last four starts. He owns a 3.00 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over 19 starts (114 innings). His next start will come Saturday at Cleveland.

Collin McHugh picks up the win Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh picked up a win Tuesday against the Twins.

McHugh allowed one run on four hits over six innings of work. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the outing. The only blemish against McHugh was a solo home run. In the second inning, Oswaldo Arcia was able to take McHugh deep. Other than that, McHugh turned in a strong start. Opposing pitcher Yohan Pino has battered by the Astros, giving McHugh the easy win.

With the win, McHugh improved to 5-9 on the year. He'll take on the Red Sox in his next start.


Collin McHugh back in the circle of trust


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/11/2014) So you picked up Collin McHugh for his two starts this week. Wonderful! You're among the 25 percent of his owners to do so.

But even with that little bump, I still say he's underowned at 66 percent.

His 0-5 record may not show it, but over his last seven starts, you could argue he's been even better than in his first seven, the ones that put him on the map before his little bump in the road convinced everyone he was just a journeyman Quadruple-A performer after all.

As I discuss in my latest post to the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, he and David Peralta are the two players on the most added list who have me most excited (well, other than Javier Baez, but he's 92 percent owned now).

Be sure to check it out.


Collin McHugh Ks eight in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Astros starter Collin McHugh was unable to factor into the decision Thursday night against the Phillies in Philadelphia. The right-hander looked sharp and permitted only one run on five hits and no walks while striking out eight over seven innings of work.

Over his last two starts covering 13 1/3 innings, McHugh has allowed only two earned runs. He owns a 3.18 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP over 17 starts (102 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at home against Minnesota.

Collin McHugh looks sharp in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Astros starter Collin McHugh pitched well enough for the win, but was unable to factor into the decision Friday night against the Blue Jays. The right-hander permitted one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five over 6 1/3 innings of a 3-1 victory.

McHugh has not won a decision since June 3. He owns a 3.32 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over 16 starts (95 innings). He will make his next start Thursday in Philadelphia.

Astros could be active at trade deadline


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/30/2014) The Astros are looking to trade DH Chris Carter, according to the New York Post. Carter is batting .212 with 111 strikeouts in 92 games, but he has 21 homers and is slugging .474.

The Post reports the Astros would also be willing to listen to trade offers for starting pitchers Jarred Cosart, Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh.


Astros now open to trading young starters


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/28/2014) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow indicated earlier this season that young starters such as Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh were not going to be used as trade chips because they were too valuable for the team's future. But times have changed, according to Fox Sports.

A shortage of starting pitchers among some contenders could result in strong packages offered for Keuchel and/or McHugh. And the Astros have become open to exploring such a deal.

"We do seem to have an excess of pretty good young starters so we wouldn't rule out anything," Luhnow said. "We'd have to get back a big-league piece, preferably a bat, in a package that makes sense for the future and present."

Both Keuchel and McHugh, however, have cooled off as the weather has heated up. The former is 0-4 in his last six starts with 57 hits allowed in his last 36 2/3 innings. McHugh has lost his last six starts, though a lack of run support has played as big a role in that misery as poor performance.


Collin McHugh drops sixth straight decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Astros starter Collin McHugh struck out nine, but took the loss Sunday afternoon at home against Miami, dropping to 4-9 on the year. Making his first start back from the disabled list, the right-hander was charged with four runs on seven hits and one walk over 6 1/3 innings of a 4-2 defeat.

McHugh has lost six consecutive decisions. Over his last three starts covering 16 1/3 innings, McHugh has allowed 11 earned runs. He owns a 3.45 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP over 15 starts (88 2/3 innings). He'll look to pick up the pieces and get back on track Friday at home against Toronto.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The move will be retroactive to July 7, meaning McHugh can return from the DL July 22, during the team's second series back from the All-Star break. He may miss just one turn in the rotation due to a finger injury, assuming the injury heals while he is on the shelf.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Collin McHugh scheduled for Wednesday bullpen session


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Astros pitcher Collin McHugh is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Wednesday, the Houston Chronicle reports.

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. His status for Saturday's scheduled start is up in the air until he has a chance to pitch Wednesday.


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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
