Could McHugh make a return to the franchise he won a ring with? I’m not sure that’s a possibly, but let’s take a look at his past season out of the ‘pen in Tampa.
McHugh took off 2020 due to COVID-19, so upon his return, he performed quite well. In his 37 appearances, he had a 9.9 strikeout per nine innings along with a 1.55 ERA which are best in his career and second best, respectively.
The only knock and question Astros brass should have would be his lower inning count this season and he will be turning 35-years-old this season. Depending on the price, the Astros should consider going after him.
