McHugh will start the second game of the season for the Astros, the Houston Chronicle's Evan Drellich reports.

There was little doubt about where McHugh stood in the pecking order, but the Astros confirmed that he will start Apr. 6 against the Yankees. The 28-year-old righty topped 200 innings for the first time last year, and is a solid bet to do so again if he stays healthy, bringing with him a likely sub-4.00 ERA and sub-1.30 WHIP.
