Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh is 2-0 with a 0.61 ERA in two career starts against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field. He has allowed one run in 14 2/3 innings in those two starts with 16 strikeouts. He gave up just one hit in eight innings in his last start there last September. McHugh is 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA in 2015.
Fantasy Tip: It's a small sample size for McHugh ($5,000, 10.0% of cap), but he should be considered a strong play at FantasyScore at this pitcher's park. McHugh has shown that last year wasn't a fluke.

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh will start the third or fourth game of the season, according to manager A.J. Hinch.
Fantasy Tip: While this comes as no surprise, it'll be interesting to see how McHugh follows up his breakout 2014 campaign. He returned 11 wins with a 2.73 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and 157 strikeouts over 154 2/3 innings through his 25 starts last season. While his underlying stats checked out last season (3.83 K/BB, 0.8 HR/9, 3.17 FIP), regression should still be expected. He is worth considering in the late middle rounds of drafts as a mid-range fake starter.

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh (forearm) is expecting to make his next start after suffering a bruised left forearm Monday, Sept. 15, when he was hit by a line drive in the seventh inning against the Cleveland Indians. "It got me kind of in the meat of my wrist," he said. "It scared me a little bit at first because my hand kind of clenched up, but for the most part it was one of those things. It was a blessing it hit me there instead of some other places. It will be nice and sore with a good bruise for the next few days." McHugh won his six straight decision in his last seven starts against the Indians and has give up two earned runs or less in nine straight starts and hasn't walked a hitter in his last four starts over a span of 29 1/3 innings.
