Lance McCullers (elbow) to be 100 percent by spring training

Astros GM Jeff Lunhow says Lance McCullers (elbow) won't have any restrictions during spring training.

Fantasy Impact

McCullers missed the entire 2019 season following Tommy John surgery. He could skyrocket up draft boards if he shows he's healthy come February and March.

Lance McCullers Jr. throwing off flat ground

Lance McCullers Jr. (elbow) threw a flat-ground session Thursday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery in November 2018.

Fantasy Impact

This is the first step for McCullers in his return from elbow surgery. He will not pitch this season for the Astros, but he should slot back into the 2020 starting rotation barring a setback.

Lance McCullers to miss 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery

Lance McCullers will miss the 2019 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact

McCullers missed most of the last quarter of the season with an elbow injury, but pitched through pain in September and October. For those who own McCullers in keeper leagues, this is obviously devastating news. For dynasty formats, however, although McCullers will miss all of next season, we've seen plenty of pitchers go on to have utterly successful careers after the procedure, so don't downgrade him quite as much in that format.

Lance McCullers could be activated on Monday

Lance McCullers (forearm) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Monday. McCullers threw a simulated game at the Astros' spring training complex Friday with no issues

Fantasy Impact

When McCullers comes off the disabled list he will be working out of the bullpen for the Astros as they prepare for the playoffs. McCullers won't be worth grabbing off the waiver wire if he was dropped in any fantasy leagues.

Lance McCullers (elbow) placed on DL

The Astros have placed Lance McCullers on the 10-day DL with an elbow injury.

Fantasy Impact

The 24-year-old is experiencing right elbow discomfort after leaving Saturday's start with the issue. It's difficult to assess how serious the injury is right now. More should be known soon.
