Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed two earned runs, six hits and no walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a win Saturday, July 23, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. He threw 69 of his 99 pitches for strikes in the quality start.
Fantasy Tip: McHugh has won back-to-back starts for the first time since winning three in a row from April 27-May 8. He has three straight quality starts, and six in the past seven outings to re-emerge as a must-start in most fantasy formats and DFS play.

Los Angeles Angels C Carlos Perez is in the starting lineup and will bat eighth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh on Saturday, July 23.
Fantasy Tip: Perez was optioned to the minors earlier this month after Geovany Soto returned from the disabled list to work on his bat. Mission accomplished. Perez went 11-for-31 with five extra-base hits after being sent down and will likely be in line for regular at-bats for the next week or so as Soto recovers from a left knee injury. Despite the surge, Perez is unlikely to have value outside of AL-only leagues.
