Astros | Collin McHugh posts quality start, win

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:21:11 -0700

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.

Angels | Carlos Perez returns to action

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:29:04 -0700

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.

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.

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.
