  • Collin McHugh: Announces retirement from baseball

    McHugh announced his retirement from professional baseball Monday.

    McHugh, 36, made the announcement on his Instagram account. The right-hander pitched for parts of 11 seasons in the big leagues, finishing with a career 3.72 ERA and 1.23 WHIP with a 967:280 K:BB over 992.2 innings. McHugh finished fourth in the American League Rookie of the Year voting in 2014 and eighth in the AL Cy Young voting in 2015.

  • Collin McHugh: Team declines option

    Atlanta declined McHugh's (shoulder) $6 million option for 2024.

    The club will pay him a $1 million buyout instead. McHugh had some uncharacteristic struggles in 2023, holding a 4.30 ERA and 47:22 K:BB over 58.2 innings. He also ended the season on the injured list with a shoulder issue. Still, with a 2.09 ERA and 149:26 K:BB over 133.1 frames from 2021-22, McHugh should have plenty of suitors.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Set for rehab assignment

    McHugh (shoulder) is set to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with Triple-A Gwinnett.

    McHugh should be able to return to Atlanta's bullpen by the end of the week, following maybe one or two appearances on the farm. The 36-year-old multi-inning reliever was placed on the 15-day injured list Sept. 6 due to right shoulder inflammation.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Placed on IL

    McHugh was placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation.

    It's the same injury that landed McHugh on the IL back in April. McHugh will be eligible to return later this month, but at this juncture there is no timetable for his potential return to Atlanta's bullpen.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Perfect in third win

    McHugh (3-0) picked up the win in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, striking out four batters over three perfect innings of relief.

    Getting the call in the fifth inning with the score tied 5-5, McHugh completely shut down Detroit's offense over 44 pitches (29 strikes) before handing things off to Atlanta's late-inning crew, and the veteran right-hander was rewarded when his team took the lead in the sixth. It's the fourth time this season McHugh has worked two innings or more but the first time he's thrown more than 40 pitches since May 14, and the 35-year-old got four days of rest after that performance. Expect Michael Tonkin to handle any long-relief duties that might arise for Atlanta over the next few days. McHugh's 2.79 ERA through 29 innings on the season is solid, but it comes with a 1.55 WHIP and 19:10 K:BB.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Will open Sunday vs. Toronto

    McHugh will start Sunday's game against the Blue Jays, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.

    McHugh hasn't covered more than three innings or 41 pitches in any of his prior nine relief appearances this season, so he likely won't push too far past those limits as he makes his first start since 2021. Depending on how he fares Sunday, Atlanta could have McHugh get stretched out for a permanent spot in the rotation, given that all of Max Fried (forearm), Kyle Wright (shoulder), Kolby Allard (oblique), Huascar Ynoa (elbow) and Ian Anderson (elbow) are on the shelf with long-term injuries.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Activated from injured list

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Set to return Tuesday

    Atlanta is expected to reinstate McHugh (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Tuesday, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    An activation ahead of Monday's series opener with the Marlins had previously been considered, but McHugh will get an extra day to rest up after he stretched out to three innings in his most recent rehab outing Friday with High-A Rome. McHugh, who posted a 2.60 ERA over 58 appearances with Atlanta in 2022 and was off to a strong start to the 2023 campaign before landing on the IL with shoulder inflammation, should settle back into a versatile setup role for the big club once activated.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Likely to return soon

    McHugh (shoulder) told reporters before Saturday's game that he is feeling good and likely to return in the next couple of days, Justin Toscano of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reports.

    McHugh threw 34 pitches over three scoreless innings in a rehab appearance for High-A Rome on Friday. The right-hander will take a couple of days off, and assuming there are no setbacks and McHugh continues to feel well, he should be operating in the Atlanta bullpen by the end of next week.

    McHugh (shoulder) will make a rehab appearance for High-A Rome on Tuesday, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Resumes throwing

    Manager Brian Snitker said Sunday that McHugh (shoulder) has resumed throwing, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

    McHugh landed on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation but expects to be activated following a minimal IL stint. The right-hander plans to throw off a mound within a day or two and should have plenty of time to build back up before he's eligible to return in late April.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Doesn't expect long IL stint

    McHugh (shoulder) said Thursday that he expects to start throwing again soon, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

    McHugh was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with what has been diagnosed as right shoulder inflammation. He's dealing with some soreness and stiffness, but it doesn't sound like this is going to be an overly lengthy absence for the veteran reliever.

  • Braves' Collin McHugh: Placed on 15-day IL

    McHugh was placed on the 15-day injured list Thursday with right shoulder inflammation.

    McHugh gave up a hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings of relief in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

The veteran right-hander has posted a sub-1.00 WHIP in three of the last four seasons since moving into a relief role, and after collecting a career-high 17 holds in 2022, he's expected to fill a setup role once again for Atlanta.
