McHugh has been shut down for the remainder of the regular season, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports.
McHugh has recorded quality starts in 9 of his last 10 outings, but the Astros have decided that they've seen enough this season. He's made 28 starts so far this season between the Astros and their Triple-A affiliate, accumulating a career-high 173.2 innings. With the team securely out of the playoff hunt, there's little incentive to push McHugh much harder.
