COLLIN MCHUGH RUMORS

More Than a Curveball: Making Collin McHugh

“When the Mets drafted me, I had a sinker and a decent curveball,” the Astros’ Collin McHugh told me earlier this year. If you wanted to be reductive, he’s still almost all fastball and curveball — those pitches make up 96% of his repertoire this year, after all — but being reductive robs all the nuance out of how McHugh has become who he is today.

Collin McHugh Continues to Trust His Slider

Collin McHugh: You Win Some, You Lose Some

Right-hander Collin McHugh didn’t exactly get his major league career off to a good start when he lost his first eight decisions in two brief stints with the Mets in 2012 and 2013. Despite posting a 2.91 minor league ERA in 2012, and a 2.87 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas in 2013, the Mets had seen enough after just five major league starts and decided to trade him to Colorado that...

Collin McHugh - a flower amidst the ruins

Pitcher Profile: Who The Hell Is This Collin McHugh Dude?

Razzball Nation!  I used today's title to try and embody the question everyone is having looking at their waiver wires... Who the hell is this guy?! Before his ridiculous debut at Safeco, Collin McHugh had pitched less than 50 ML innings with an ERA that resembled an Extenze advertising claim.  Called up to fill in for a DL-bound Corey Scott Feldman, McHugh got a struggling...
