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.

Astros | Collin McHugh annihilated in New York

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 22:33:56 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed six runs - five earned - and three hits with two walks while recording just one out in his start Wednesday, April 6, against the New York Yankees in the shortest start of his career. "It's about as bad as you can draw it up," McHugh lamented.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh won 19 games last season and he had won his two previous outings with a 1.88 ERA and 16 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings against the Yankees. Chalk it up as one poor outing - one really poor outing. He will bounce back, so don't compound the bad start by giving up on him and letting another fantasy owners take advantage of your haste.

Astros | Collin McHugh has so-so outing

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 20:35:35 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed three earned runs, six hits and two walks with five strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings in a Grapefruit League spring start against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, March 15.

Fantasy Tip: The runs were the first allowed by McHugh this spring, so there should be no cause for concern, especially against a good lineup. Remember, we told you a couple of weeks ago McHugh has been working on a two-seamer, so perhaps his new pitch meant some rockier than usual results. He remains a solid middle-round pick in all fantasy formats.

Astros | Collin McHugh adding two-seamer?

Sun, 21 Feb 2016 06:21:08 -0800

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh has been working on a two-seam fastball this offseason and hopes to add the pitch to his repertoire to help him against right-handed batters.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh exploded out of nowhere in 2014 with an exceptional season (2.73 ERA and 9.1 K/9 through 154 2/3 innings), and then he won 19 games in 2015 with weaker ratios -- 3.89 ERA and 7.6 K/9. Entering 2016, he should be viewed as an end-of-the-rotation arm to target in the late middle rounds of drafts.

Astros | Collin McHugh shaky in loss

Wed, 14 Oct 2015 21:47:57 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk over four innings in the Game 5 loss in the American League Division Series against the Kansas City Royals Wednesday, Oct. 14.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) didn't live up to his FantasyScore salary expectations in this one. He'll be a special option again in 2016, as he is young and still has a ton of untapped potential.

Astros | Collin McHugh tabbed for Game 1

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 22:02:00 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh will start Game 1 of the American League Divisional Series against the Kansas City Royals Thursday, Oct. 8.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) did not face the Royals in the regular season, but he was 7-3 with a 4.05 ERA in 100 innings on the road with 81 strikeouts. He is a decent FantasyScore play opposite Yordano Ventura.

Astros | Collin McHugh finishes shy of 20 wins

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 01:23:09 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh allowed a run and six hits in seven innings to improve to 6-0 in his last seven starts. McHugh finished 19-7 overall.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) finished just shy of becoming the second 20-game winner on the Astros staff this season. He will be one of the Astros' top pitchers in 2016 and should be ranked fairly high on your offseason board.

Astros | Collin McHugh likes facing A's

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 10:06:29 -0700

Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh is 2-1 with a 1.77 ERA in three career starts against the Oakland Athletics, who he faces Wednesday, Sept. 9. He's 1-1 with a 2.31 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 11 2/3 innings in his two outings against them this year. McHugh has a 1.54 ERA in his last six starts and is trying for his 16th win of the year. He's held opponents to seven runs in his last 41 frames, posting a 1.10 WHIP over that time.

Fantasy Tip: McHugh's ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) recent numbers speak for themselves, and he's a strong start tonight against Oakland on FantasyScore. It helps that he'll be toeing the rubber at pitcher-friendly O.co Coliseum, as well.
