Astros' Collin McHugh: Beats Pirates 5-4 Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (8-10) allowed three runs on seven hits, struck out four and walked one over five innings in a victory against the Pirates on Wednesday.

The Astros spotted him an early lead, and he was able to hold onto it through five. He threw 67 of his 99 pitches for strikes and induced 10 ground ball outs. He is now 8-10 with a 5.01 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 141 strikeouts in 142.0 innings this season.

Astros' Colby Rasmus: Doing baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rasmus (ear) has started throwing and hitting in the cage, ROOT Sports' Julia Morales reports.

He remains on track to return to the Astros at some point in September after having a cyst removed from his ear in early August. However, it is unclear what kind of role will be waiting for him when he returns. Presumably he will get starts in left field and center field, but his pre-surgery struggles have opened the door for Teoscar Hernandez, Jake Marisnick and Tony Kemp, among others, to compete for those at-bats.

Astros' Tony Sipp: Allows run in relief effort
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sipp struck out the side during his lone inning of work Tuesday against the Pirates, although not before giving up a run on a solo homer from Gregory Polanco.

Sipp now has allowed six earned runs over six innings pitched in August and his ERA has jumped from 4.71 to 5.45 in that span. He has the second highest WHIP (1.64) on the team amongst pitchers who have appeared in at least 10 games and his 2.9 HR/9 makes him very unreliable from a fantasy perspective.

Astros' Michael Feliz: Effective in relief outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Feliz threw a shutout eighth inning with two strikeouts in a 7-1 loss against the Pirates on Tuesday.

Feliz hasn't allowed a run in 10 out of his last 12 appearances, although he gave up six combined runs in the other two outings. His 36 percent K-rate is significant, but a 1.16 HR/9 has led to a bloated 4.14 ERA.
