Our own Nathaniel Reeves reported on July 12 that McHugh was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a finger injury, retroactive to July 7.
Evan Drellich, who covers the Astros for the Houston Chronicle, tweeted the following update on McHugh.
McHugh's next start will be rehab for OKC. Just want to be sure he's good to go. So Obie gets another turnMcHugh, who played parts of the last two seasons with the Mets and Rockies, is 4-8 with a 3.28 ERA in 14 starts this season. He's allowed only 58 hits in 82 1/3 innings, while striking out 93. McHugh has a career record of 4-16 with a 5.34 ERA.
