Astros' Collin McHugh: Close to resuming throwing program

McHugh (elbow) said Tuesday that he might start playing catch this weekend, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The diagnosis of a posterior impingement in McHugh's elbow came with the recommendation of six weeks without any throwing activity. McHugh is nearing the end of that window, but he's still a ways away from game action, as he will need to gradually increase his throwing distance on flat ground before progressing to mound work and ultimately a rehab assignment.
