Searching for Zack Wheeler Replacements

Looking back on the workload thrust upon New York Mets starting pitcher Zack Wheeler last season, it’s not surprising the young hurler went down with a major elbow injury and will now require Tommy John Surgery to fix the damage done. Whether you put stock in total number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, including how many of each pitch type, relating to injury risk is up to you...

DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) Collin McHugh struck out three in three solid innings and the Houston Astros blanked a Toronto Blue Jays split squad 1-0 on Monday.

The link between Jacob deGrom and Collin McHugh

According to Baseball-Reference, since 2002, the first year for which we have reliable velocity ratings for all pitchers, only four U.S.-born righty starters in their rookie season (min 125 IP) at age 25 or above have posted an ERA+ of 120 or more. And two of those came last year with Jacob deGrom and Collin McHugh. Those two were both drafted by the Mets. McHugh came up first...

McHugh starts 2015 firmly as an Astros starter

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Somewhere in Houston's training camp is another Collin McHugh, or at least the Astros hope so. ''Something unexpected is going to happen,'' new manager A.J. Hinch said Saturday after the Astros' first spring workout for pitchers and catchers. ''You don't know who that's going to be, but that's the fun part of spring.''

Player Profile #114: Collin McHugh | SP | HOU

One of the most surprising pitchers of 2014? Screw that. Collin McHugh was one of the best pitchers of 2014, period. His 2.73 ERA ranked 15th in the league among the 102 pitchers with at least 150 IP, and his 3.16 SIERA ranked 16th. By K%-BB%, a great metric of pitcher dominance, McHugh’s 18.7% also ranked 15th, and his 1.02 WHIP was sixth. By pretty much every stat that matters...

6 Breakout Pitchers You Can Trust In 2015

Each and every year it seems like the baseball community develops more and more advanced stats, with scouts covering more and more players at younger and younger ages. So how is it possible that every year players still come out of nowhere to put up monster fantasy seasons? It seems unfathomable that we still miss on these big shot players, but we do.

2015 Fantasy Dynasty Starting Pitcher Rankings

Right now starting pitcher is the deepest position there is in dynasty leagues. I always stress drafting hitters, especially power hitters, before taking any pitcher just because of how many pitcherss come out of nowhere to provide huge value every season. In 2014 we had Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh, Matt Shoemaker, Garrett Richards, and, most of all, Corey Kluber all take huge...

Little Jose Altuve’s Big Season for Houston Astros

It’s been a season of controversy for the Houston Astros. They showed some real promise in June, with rookie right fielder George Springer making a big splash, and pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh posting ace-like numbers. However, shortly after Sports Illustrated declared them the “2017 World Series champs“, things began to unravel. Top prospect Carlos Correa was...

DraftKings – It’s Still Baseball Season?

Does anyone else feel like the baseball season ended two weeks ago? Then again I'm in Boston, baseball season ended around the 4th of July this year. So maybe I'm not the best judge of these things.

Tribe bats non-existent in fourth straight loss

The Indians—oh my beloved Cleveland Indians. They are teetering on the brink of bad and boring. Well, at least the offense is. We have seen one solid pitching performance go by the wayside too many times since the All-Star break. This time it was spot starter Zach McAllister who did all he could to keep his team in the game while the bats offered little run support in a 3-1 loss...

End of season post-mortem: Houston Astros

Yes, the Astros are finishing under .500 again. For those keeping score at home, this was the sixth straight season where the Astros didn’t sniff 81 wins. However, the team also didn’t lose 100 games for the first time since 2010, and could even avoid 90 this year. They’re still a bad team, but they’re nowhere near as bad as they have been.
