Astros' Lance McCullers: Out for season following Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers underwent Tommy John surgery Tuesday and will miss the entire 2019 season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

This is a brutal blow for McCullers and the Astros. The southpaw dealt with a forearm/elbow issue for the final two months of the 2018 campaign, and surgery was ultimately deemed necessary following further evaluation. He'll now begin a long recovery process that will keep him from pitching competitively until at least 2020. McCullers posted a 3.86 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 142:50 K:BB across 128.1 innings in 2018.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Surgery not ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Jeff Luhnow said Monday that McCullers could require surgery to address a lingering elbow injury, which would sideline the right-hander for the entire 2019 season, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Shortly after the Astros were eliminated from the postseason, manager A.J. Hinch hinted that McCullers could miss a large chunk of the 2019 campaign with the elbow issue, so Luhnow's comments only further clouds the 25-year-old's forecast. Luhnow added that McCullers is expected to receive further consultations from doctors in the near future, so more clarity on his situation should come later in the offseason. At least for the time being, McCullers doesn't profile as much more than a late-round dart for early drafters, given his sketchy health outlook.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Could miss large portion of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers' elbow woes could potentially cost him a large part of the 2019 season, manager A.J. Hinch said on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday.

Injuries are nothing new for the 25-year-old. He was limited to just 128.1 innings in 2018, though that was actually a career high. His status for the upcoming season is unclear -- Hinch was somewhat vague about the severity of the issue, saying that "nothing is off the table" but not offering any concrete timeline. A clearer picture will likely resolve itself closer to the start of next season, but owners making offseason keeper decisions should be aware that McCullers' injury problems are as present as ever.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Makes second relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers struck out one over two-thirds of an inning in a 5-2 win over Baltimore in the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader.

This was McCullers' second appearance since coming off the disabled list and it was a stressful one: the bases were loaded with one out in the seventh inning. After a wild pitch plated a run, McCullers settled in to get a strikeout and groundout. He's not assured of a postseason roster spot, as manager A.J. Hinch needs to determine if the right-hander's arsenal is where it needs to be after he made just two appearances since July.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Makes first appearance off DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers threw a scoreless inning, striking out one batter, in Wednesday's 3-1 loss to the Blue Jays.

McCullers, who was activated from the disabled list earlier this week, made his first appearance since Aug. 4, when he left a start against the Dodgers with a strained right forearm muscle. He needed just 11 pitches to navigate the second, third and fourth hitters in Toronto's lineup. He threw his signature curveball five times, eliciting two swinging strikes, and another called strike. The right-hander will pitch one more time this weekend against Baltimore, after which the organization will evaluate McCullers for a spot on the postseason roster.
