• Astros right-hander Collin McHugh pitched five innings and allowed and three hits, one walk and one run and struck out five batters in rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday night. He's been on the disabled list since July 7 with a right middle fingernail avulsion, which is when the nail pulls away from the skin. If he came through healthy, he would be slotted back into the rotation, likely this weekend.
