Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh (fingernail) is unlikely to pitch Saturday, July 12, because his bullpen session was moved from Thursday, July 10, to Friday, July 11. A decision will be made Friday. SP Brett Oberholtzer is available if needed Saturday.
Fantasy Tip: McHugh could be rested through the All-Star break, so the surprise breakthrough arm may not pitch until next week. Adjust accordingly in deep leagues.
