The Astros have claimed 26-year old right-hander Collin McHugh off waivers from Colorado. McHugh was designated for assignment by the Rockies earlier in the week.
The stockpiling of bullpen arms in Houston is now reaching new heights. The addition of McHugh not only complicates the bullpen picture, it also maxes out the roster at 40.
McHugh has appeared in 15 big league games for the Mets and Rockies, including nine starts. The numbers have not been pretty (0-8, 8.94 ERA, 1.796 WHIP) His minor league numbers have been a little more encouraging.
