Collin McHugh (P) BOS - Jul. 18

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=743672

McHugh (elbow) will not be ready for Opening Day, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: The report does not cite anyone in management confirming McHugh's status, but it was borne from a discussion with Boston general manager Chaim Bloom, who addressed the unsettled nature of the rotation. A week ago, manager Ron Roenicke said McHugh needs to progress faster to make the Opening Day roster, so it's natural to assume that the right-hander, who still hasn't pitched in a game-like environment, will not be part of the 30-man roster July 24.

BHQ take: McHugh, who battled elbow soreness all year in 2019, is not expected to be ready for the start of the season. But assuming he can get healthy, he will represent a significant upgrade to a mediocre back end of the Red Sox rotation. 

For now, until McHugh proves his arm is sound, we will give him only the starting pitching innings of the man he replaced on the Red Sox 40-man roster, Hector Velazquez, especially since McHugh has averaged only 70 IP a season over the last three years while swinging between the rotation and the bullpen. But if his arm can hold up under an increased workload, there is no reason he should not be able to bump lesser-skilled pitchers, like Martin Perez and Ryan Weber, down in the Boston rotation pecking order. —Kris Olson

I can see where this is going to go in our league; we have BoSox psychos.  I'm feeling high single digits, and we won't go that high.

Now a Red Sox - assume he fills Sale's rotation slot to start the season if he can get stretched out in time, and then if/when Sale is ready he returns to the swing role he's filled for the Astros the last few years.
