Astros | Collin McHugh posting solid numbers

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 17:31:28 -0700

Over his last 36 starts, Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh has 21 victories, seven losses and a 3.36 ERA. Only San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner (22-8) has more wins over that stretch.

Fantasy Tip: During the month of August, McHugh ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) went 2-2 with a 1.89 ERA over five starts, with 34 strikeouts in 33 1/3 innings. He will make his next start against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, Sept. 2, and is worthy of consideration for your FantasyScore lineups.

Astros | Collin McHugh dazzle pinstripers

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:50:20 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed two earned runs, five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a win against the New York Yankees Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is 2-2 in five starts in the month of August, but he has a sparkling 1.89 ERA with at least five strikeouts in each of his outings. All five outings have been quality starts, too, and his lack of wins is more of a run support issue, as the team had totaled just three runs in his previous three starts.

Astros | Collin McHugh interested in extension

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 11:26:53 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh will finish his second year of service time in 2015 and is interested in signing a long-term contract extension to remain in Houston. However, he said contract talks haven't taken place yet. The Astros can keep McHugh around for another year at the league minimum price, so he's not expecting any talks anytime soon.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) has been overshadowed by Dallas Keuchel this year, but he hasn't been too shabby himself, with a 13-7 record, 3.96 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 7.2 strikeouts per nine innings. McHugh can be a very effective second starter on FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 18:06:47 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh moved into tie for the American League lead with 13 wins, allowing one run on eight hits and striking out six over seven innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, Aug. 2.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) keeps winning, but his 4.27 ERA isn't exactly impressive. The matchup has to be friendly for McHugh to be worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore.

Astros | Collin McHugh looks for rebound

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 18:19:13 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh is set to start Thursday, June 18, against the Colorado Rockies. He was rocked for eight earned runs and nine hits over three innings last time out, and he has served up four homers over his past two outings, and six homers over his past four starts.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($5,900; or 11.8% of cap) had lasted at least six innings in five straight starts, and nine of 11, before his outing June 13. Considering the fact McHugh is working at Coors Field you should take a pass on him in FantasyScore.

Astros | Collin McHugh credits diet for success

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 18:17:42 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh spent most of his life with a stomach pain that was never medically addressed. He decided to cut out gluten and immediately felt better. Since his diet change, shortly after coming over to the Astros, he has transformed from a subpar pitcher to a bona fide major league starter. He estimated he lost 25 to 30 pounds and noticed an improvement in stamina right away.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh posted a 2.73 ERA last season, and he has a 5-2 mark with a 4.24 ERA this season while striking out 52 over 63 2/3 innings. At $6,700 (or 13.4% of cap) in FantasyScore he is a solid option most nights.
