Astros' Collin McHugh: Could be option to pitch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh could be deployed as the Astros' opening pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Angels, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

With Brad Peacock (shoulder) having experienced a recent setback and several potential fill-in options Triple-A Round Rock unavailable for one reason or another, the Astros are severely lacking in 40-man roster pitchers who are capable of making a spot start Tuesday. Though Houston intends to use McHugh in relief moving forward after he stumbled in his eight starts with the big club earlier this season, the team may have to temporarily deviate from that plan due to its lack of starting depth. Since McHugh hasn't tossed more than two innings in a game since May 7, he may struggle to factor into the decision if he does start Tuesday in what ultimately go down as a bullpen game for the Astros.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Will remain in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh is not being considered for a spot start next Tuesday when the Astros need a fill-in for the injured Brad Peacock (shoulder), Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh is nowhere near being stretched out enough to get deep into a game. The starter-turned-reliever, who just finished a stint on the injured list, has not pitched more than two innings since May 7.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Mops up Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh returned to action and pitched a scoreless ninth inning in which he allowed a hit and recorded a strikeout during Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Pirates.

McHugh missed close to six weeks while rehabbing an elbow injury. Manager AJ Hinch described McHugh's role to David Barron of the Houston Chronicle as being "good against right-handed hitters and to be a weapon," but stopped short of calling him a right-handed specialist.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Brian McTaggart of reports.

McHugh had been out for over a month with elbow soreness. He began the season as a starter but was moved to the bullpen shortly before getting injured and is likely to fill that role again this time around. A return to the rotation can't be ruled out at some point down the line, though he'll have to improve significantly on his 6.04 ERA if he's to earn that chance.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Targeted for Tuesday return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) threw for a second straight day Saturday, striking out one in one inning for Double-A Corpus Christi.

McHugh will be evaluated Monday to determine how he responds to being used on consecutive days, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports. If that checkup turns out satisfactory, all indications are that McHugh would be activated in time for Tuesday's series opener against Pittsburgh.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Set for two more rehab appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) will make at least two more minor-league rehab appearances, Brian McTaggart of reports.

McHugh will make a pair of minor-league appearances Friday and Saturday. If he responds well to pitching on back-to-back days, the right-hander could be cleared to return from the injured list shortly thereafter. Once healthy, McHugh will likely resume his role as a multi-inning reliever.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Will make another rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager AJ Hinch told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM on Tuesday that McHugh (elbow) would make at least one more rehab appearance in the minors later this week.

McHugh completed his second rehab outing at Double-A Corpus Christi on Monday, working 1.1 innings and conceding one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two. The righty tossed 33 pitches in the game, and Hinch suggested McHugh would take on a similar workload again in his next appearance. Hinch's comments suggest that McHugh is still being viewed as a multi-inning relief option when he returns from the 10-day injured list rather than a candidate to re-enter the rotation.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Shifts rehab to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) will shift his rehab to Double-A Corpus Christi, Brian McTaggart of reports.

McHugh will pitch an inning or more with Corpus Christi on Monday, and it sounds like he could be back with the big club shortly thereafter if everything goes off without a hitch.

June 15, 2019 12:24 PM
Astros' Collin McHugh: Starts rehab Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning for Triple-A Round Rock on Friday.

McHugh kicked off a rehab assignment by giving up a two-run homer and was pulled mid-inning after 19 pitches. According to Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, McHugh will require more than one outing of multiple innings before returning to the Astros. The possibility exists he could be back by next weekend's four-game series against the Yankees.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Begins rehab stint Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh tossed a side session without pain Tuesday, and he's since been cleared to embark on a minor-league stint. It remains unknown as to how many rehab appearances he'll need to make before he's activated from the injured list.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Throws another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh reported no pain in his right elbow following a bullpen session Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The report describes the bullpen session as intense, although McHugh's command was shaky. He's nearing a rehab assignment, but the details about when and where are unclear. Additionally, whether McHugh eventually returns to Houston's rotation or is deployed in the bullpen remains to seen.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Throws bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh had thrown earlier this week, sessions that manager AJ Hinch described as less-than-full effort and off a slope. Saturday's session was the first time off a mound. Hinch offered no timetable for McHugh's return.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Feels confident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) feels he could begin a rehab assignment next weekend, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh is feeling confident after throwing earlier this week, but manager AJ Hinch slowed his roll. The manager characterized McHugh's throwing sessions as pitching with less-than-full effort off a slope, not a mound. "He hasn't been off the mound yet," Hinch said Friday. "He's going to get off the mound today. He's not close to a rehab assignment right now." Hinch will play it slow with McHugh, particularly after other injured players, Jose Altuve (hamstring) and George Springer (hamstring), reinjured themselves after they said they were ready to play.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Completes bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) threw an 18-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

McHugh was limited to throwing fastballs Wednesday, although his return to mound work is a major step in his recovery from right elbow discomfort. The 31-year-old remains without a firm timetable for his return, but he should continue ramping up the intensity in his throwing sessions.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Plays catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh (elbow) played catch Monday but offered no significant update on his rehab, Daniel Kramer of reports.

The Astros are slow-rolling McHugh's return from elbow discomfort, which is the prudent thing to do. Thoughts of McHugh's return pop up after his eventual replacement in the rotation, Corbin Martin, couldn't get out of the fourth inning for a third straight start Monday. Prior to being placed on the injured list, McHugh had been working out of the bullpen, but Martin's struggles could eventually lead to McHugh's return to a starting role.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Needs more rest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh's sore elbow hasn't made any progress lately, so he'll take some more time to rest his arm, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

An MRI on McHugh's elbow last week revealed no structural damage, but he remains not close to a return. He's played catch since landing on the injured list but his elbow did not respond particularly well. There doesn't appear to be any clear timeline for his return.

Astros' Collin McHugh: No structural damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

An MRI on McHugh's elbow did not reveal any structural damage, and the hope is that some rest will allow the soreness/inflammation to subside, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

He is not out of the woods by any means, but it sounds like McHugh's elbow injury is on the mild side, and may not require surgery. It is possible that he was pitching through this issue over the past month, when he really began to implode after a great first four starts of the season. There is no timetable for his return, but he was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Lands on IL with elbow discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with right elbow discomfort, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

He lost fantasy relevance in many formats after a four-game stretch from April 21 to May 7 when he gave up 24 earned runs in 18 innings that relegated him to the bullpen. It is unclear how long this elbow injury has been bothering him, but it may have been the reason for those unforeseen struggles after he got off to a good start through four turns in the rotation. Brady Rodgers was promoted to take McHugh's spot in the bullpen. Consider McHugh out indefinitely.

Astros' Collin McHugh: Throws two scoreless in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh struck out four over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's 11-4 win over Detroit.

This was McHugh's second outing out of the bullpen and his most encouraging effort since mid-April. After a miserable stretch during which he posted an 11.44 ERA over 19.2 innings, he'll need to string together more outings like this to get back in the starting rotation. He was an effective reliever for Houston in 2018, but the Astros already have a strong, deep relief corps and could make better use of the 31-year-old right-hander as a starter.

May 11, 2019 05:40 PM
Astros' Collin McHugh: Moving to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McHugh will be moved to the bullpen, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

McHugh has struggled to a 6.37 ERA in eight starts so far this season, with a particularly poor 12.00 ERA over his last four. He had success as a reliever last season, recording a 1.99 ERA in 58 appearances. Corbin Martin is expected to be promoted for his big-league debut to start Sunday against Texas.
