Astros Injury Update: Collin McHugh rehab result

By on 7/23/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Houston Astros entered Tuesday night's game against the Oakland A's with a record of 41-58, fourth in the American League West. Although 25th in the league in runs scored and 28th in ERA, the Astros have improved over a season ago, in which they won only 51 games. There was some good news on the injury front, as pitcher Collin McHugh pitched well in a rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

I reported on Sunday that McHugh, who was placed on the disabled list on July 12, should return from a finger injury following a rehab start at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

An update on McHugh, as reported by R.J. White of, McHugh began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, giving up one earned run on three hits, with five strikeouts and one walk, in five innings of work. He threw a total of 80 pitches and barring any setbacks, should return to the Astros for his next start.

McHugh,  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.
