Scott Feldman has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, Collin McHugh called to start in Feldman's place.

The Astros' Opening Day starter is heading to the 15-day disabled list with right biceps tendinitis, reports MLB.com Astros beat writer Brian McTaggart -

Feldman had been pitching like ace for the Astros through his first four starts for the most part - 2-1 with 1.69 ERA and 0.94 WHIP. There was a change between Feldman's first three starts and his most recent appearance. Through his first three games he posted a 2-0 record with one earned run allowed on seven hits. Kansas City scored four runs on hits on April 17.

Collin McHugh was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to replace Feldman in the rotation. Houston selected McHugh off waivers on December 18, 2013 from Colorado. He has pitched 14 innings in Triple-A Oklahoma City this season, posting a 4.50 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. Two of his four appearances have been starts, including his most recent start on April 17 against Colorado Springs - 5 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, O BB, 3 SO.

McTaggart also tweeted out a quote from Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow -

The question that come to mind - would Paul Clemens or Jerome WIlliams have had a chance to start if not for the Jarred Cosart's one-batter outing?
