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.

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.
