Astros | Collin McHugh hurls quality start

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 20:10:25 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed one run on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the St. Louis Cardinals Wednesday, June 15, with two walks and six strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: The inconsistency that McHugh has displayed this season makes him a risky starting option versus most opponents. His next start will come versus the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, July 21.

Astros | Collin McHugh falls to 5-5 with loss

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 15:51:58 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh dropped to 5-5 after losing his start Thursday, June 9, versus the Texas Rangers. The right-hander only lasted 3 2/3 innings, surrendering four runs on seven hits, including a home run. He also struck out six and walked one.

Fantasy Tip: It was his shortest outing of the campaign since failing to escape the first inning in his season debut. McHugh has been underwhelming thus far, if nothing else, considering he's coming off a year that saw him win a career-high 19 ballgames with solid numbers across the board. Through 13 starts, McHugh now owns an unpleasant 5.22 ERA.

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts in a complete game win against the Arizona Diamondbacks Monday, May 30. It was his first career complete game.

Astros | Collin McHugh strikes out 10

Wed, 25 May 2016 23:11:52 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh took a no-decision in his start Wednesday, May 25, against the Baltimore Orioles. He worked 5 1/3 innings, surrendering three runs on eight hits and one walk. He also struck out a season-high 10 batters.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh was terrible throughout April but seemingly has righted the ship, as he's gone 2-1 with a 4.06 ERA in five starts in May, while picking up 31 strikeouts over 31 total innings. In addition, he pitched into the sixth inning or beyond in all five of those assignments. The 28-year-old hasn't been as sharp as he was the past two seasons, but at least he's getting closer to that form if his past couple of starts are any indication.

Astros | Collin McHugh suffers hard-luck loss

Thu, 19 May 2016 19:40:54 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh (4-4) allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings in a loss to the Chicago White Sox Thursday, May 19, with one walk and eight strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh had a three-game winning streak snapped Thursday and pitched well enough to earn a victory, although his opponent Chris Sale was even better in this contest. McHugh's next start will come against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, May 25, but he should be viewed as a risky play for this game due to the O's high-powered offense.

Astros | Mike Fiers pushed back

Mon, 16 May 2016 06:21:56 -0700

Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers was pushed back from his start Thursday, May 19, to Saturday, May 21. Fiers pitched four innings in relief Sunday, May 15. SP Collin McHugh will start Thursday against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Fiers' stuff has declined, at least to open the season, as his opponents' batting average is .289 with a 6.25 K/9. He'll start at home against the Texas Rangers now, but he's a middling option in DFS. McHugh has struggled even more with a 5.58 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. He's not a good selection in DFS right now.

Astros | Collin McHugh bounced around again

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 21:46:49 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed five earned runs, 10 hits and a walk over four innings in a loss Friday, April 22, against the Boston Red Sox as his ERA ballooned to 7.56.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh has allowed four or more earned runs in three of his four outings this season. The good news is he has allowed just one home run and four walks over 16 2/3 innings, but he has allowed 31 hits, too for a 2.10 WHIP. Avoid him in all fantasy leagues and DFS play until he starts to show a little more efficiency.

Astros | Collin McHugh bounces back

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 23:50:53 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh scattered eight hits with a walk over seven scoreless innings in a win Monday, April 11, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh was much better at home in 2015, and he looked good at Minute Maid Park in this one against a good lineup after getting tuned up in his first outing on the road. Feel confident using him at home, but avoid him in fantasy when he works on the road against difficult opponents.
