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.

News
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.

News
Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart was stuck with a loss Saturday, giving up five earned runs on seven hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Marlins.

Cosart (9-7) gave up a run in the first inning and four more in the second, with three coming on a bases-loaded double by Giancarlo Stanton. He's struggled in July, giving up 21 runs (19 earned) in 21 1/3 innings and posting an ugly 13:14 K:BB ratio. Cosart is scheduled to face the Blue Jays Thursday.

Shoulder - 15-day DL. Out until at least early July (Updated - 7/1/14)
News
Astros pitcher Matt Albers is scheduled to throw off a mound Friday, MLB.com reports. He has been on the disabled list since April 22 with shoulder tendinitis.

"I've been feeling pretty good," Albers said. "I think I felt pretty good a couple of times and then when I got off the mound, I had a setback. Hopefully, this time we're making sure I stretch it out and get some extra throwing in before I get back off the mound, but it's feeling pretty good right now."

Albers added that he expects to throw at 70-75 percent intensity Friday in order not to push himself too hard as he attempts to return from a lengthy injury.

Foot - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-August (Updated - 7/27/14)
News
Astros reliever Josh Zeid, who went on the 15-day disabled list Saturday due to bilateral sesamoiditis in his left foot, hopes to avoid surgery and pitch again this season, per MLB.com.

"It's definitely an option," Zeid said. "I don't think the word surgery has come up yet. It happens to be bilateral, so if you have to have surgery on both feet, it would be quite lengthy. That's not something I'm keying on right now. My goal is to help the team any way possible, whether it's this year, next month or a few months after that. I want to be able to help the Houston Astros as long as possible. I'm taking care of it right now, and nipping it in the bud is the best option."

Astros pitcher Scott Feldman didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, giving up just one earned run on five hits and three walks in seven innings and striking out one in his team's 7-4 loss to the A's.

Feldman gave up a fifth-inning solo home run but was otherwise able to navigate through baserunners to end a three-start losing streak. The bullpen denied him a win with an ugly ninth inning. Feldman owns a 4.39 ERA and 62:35 K:BB ratio in 108 2/3 innings. He's slated to take on the Blue Jays Sunday.

Astros pitcher Chad Qualls was rocked in a blown save Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on four hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 7-4 loss to the A's.

Qualls (1-2) was handed a 4-1 lead going into the ninth inning, but he let the A's tie the game with two outs before being removed with two runners still on base, both of whom would come around to score. Qualls owns a 3.19 ERA and 33:5 K:BB ratio in 36 2/3 innings.

News
Astros outfielder George Springer participated in batting practice on the field Tuesday for the first time since going on the disabled list, the Houston Chronicle reports.

Springer is expected to increase his activities over the next few days. "He’s increased his activity every day," manager Bo Porter said. "I think yesterday he was able to throw and do a little shagging. He’s been hitting in the cage and he’s going to continue to hit and it seems like he’s progressing well."

Springer hasn't played since July 19 while dealing with a quad injury.
