Astros' Lance McCullers: Doesn't factor into decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (arm) lasted 3.1 innings Sunday against the Angels, allowing two earned runs on four hits while walking one and striking out four. He didn't factor into the decision in a 7-5 loss.

Making his first start since Sept. 6 due to an arm injury, it's likely that McCullers was on a pitch count (he tossed 39 of his 63 pitches for strikes), especially given the team's upcoming playoff run. Nonetheless, the 23-year-old is now three strikeouts shy of tying his career-high 129 set as a rookie back in 2015 -- which is a number he should be able to eclipse in his final start of the season Saturday in Boston.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Confirmed as Sunday's starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (arm) has been confirmed as Sunday's starter against the Angels.

The team had already named McCullers the starter for the series finale -- his inclusion on the lineup card simply provided final confirmation. McCullers will be making his first start since Sept. 6, and he only threw 76 pitches in that outing; he will presumably be on a pitch count Sunday, but the Astros have not announced any sort of hard cap.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Tabbed for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (arm) will start Sunday's game against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McCullers has been battling arm fatigue lately and hasn't appeared in a game since Sept. 6. It was recently announced that he was being considered to start Sunday's outing, and that will indeed be the case. McCullers started the season strong, but had a few rough outings in July before missing the month of August to a back injury. Overall he's been a serviceable option for the Astros and will look to return to his initial form as he heads into Sunday's outing with a 3.97 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.

Astros' Lance McCullers: Feels good following bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCullers (arm) felt good following his bullpen session Wednesday, and remains a candidate to start Sunday's game against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Sunday's start seems to be between McCullers and Collin McHugh, although manager AJ Hinch has yet to decide at this point in time. If McHugh is tabbed as the starter, there's a chance McCullers will take the mound Monday against Texas, but the club hasn't released any concrete information on that front either. Over the course of the 2017 season, the right-hander has accumulated a 3.97 ERA and 1.27 WHIP over 20 starts.
