Jake Peavy turned in a nice start in earning a no-decision against the Padres on Wednesday, yielding one run on six hits over 6 1/3 innings.
Peavy entered Wednesday's start holding an 8.21 ERA, but he pitched far better than that bloated number against the Padres. The only run to score on his watch came when Alexei Ramirez notched an RBI single in the seventh inning. The veteran right-hander will need to string together multiple starts of this variety if he wants to extricate himself from his current 7.26 ERA and 1.78 WHIP. A road start against the Braves shows next on his schedule. May 25 - 7:09 PM

Jake Peavy was yanked after giving up five runs in 1 2/3 innings Friday against the Cubs.

Peavy was coming off his best start of the year, a six-inning, one-run affair against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, but this qualifies as a big setback for him. It's probably time that he go on the DL with elbow inflammation or anything else the Giants want to make up.
May 21 - 1:40 AM

Jake Peavy switched things up and offered a delightful start in Saturday's no-decision against the Diamondbacks, yielding just one run on five hits over six innings.

Peavy has struggled through the first month-and-a-half of the season, but it didn't show on Saturday. Against the Diamondbacks, the 34-year-old right-hander struck out five and walked two. The only run to score against him came courtesy of a Chris Owings RBI double in the second inning. Otherwise, Peavy kept the scoreboard free and clear of runs. Even with the strong start, he still holds a troublesome 7.43 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 36/15 K/BB ratio through eight starts (40 innings). He should settle down off of those scorched-earth numbers, but his days as a reliable fantasy starter are nothing more than a faded dream of glory at this point. He will play host to the Cubs next time he toes the rubber. It might be a good idea to hide the children for that one. Things could get messy.
May 14 - 11:51 PM

Jake Peavy yielded three runs in five innings and walked five in a loss to the Blue Jays on Monday.

Peavy struck out six. The Giants keep saying they're committed to getting him right and this is actually an improved outing for him, so he's not going to lose his rotation spot just yet, even though Chris Heston would likely be an upgrade.
May 10 - 3:01 AM

Jake Peavy was hammered for seven earned runs in six innings Wednesday as the Giants fell to the Reds.

Peavy struck out eight and only issued one walk, but the Cincinnati offense tagged him for eight hits and four of those hits were home runs. The veteran right-hander now has a 9.00 ERA through six starts this season.
May 4 - 3:21 PM

Jake Peavy was rocked for six runs in two-plus innings Friday in a loss to the Mets.

All six runs scored in the third inning, which ended up being a 12-run explosion for New York. Peavy gave up four hits and walked five while throwing just 38 out of 70 pitches for strikes. The veteran right-hander now owns an 8.61 ERA and 2.00 WHIP through five starts this season. That’s, uh, not good. He might still have some leash left, but the Giants are surely losing patience with him.
Apr 29 - 10:35 PM

Jake Peavy went seven innings and only yielded two earned runs on seven hits and a walk on Saturday against the Marlins, striking out four and picking up win number one.

Peavy was efficient, needing only 90 pitches to navigate seven painless innings. He only struck out four, sticking with his low strikeout rate (6.00 K/9), though two of those whiffs came against Giancarlo Stanton. His ERA dropped to 6.86 and it was the first time in 2016 that he gave up fewer than four runs in a start. He'll look to keep the momentum going against the Mets on the road next week.
Apr 24 - 1:42 AM

Jake Peavy yielded four runs in five-plus innings Monday against the Diamondbacks.

It was two runs through five, but Peavy gave up a single and a triple to start the sixth. He was pulled then and the inherited runner late came around to score. Though it didn't do a lot for his ERA, this goes down as an improved outing for Peavy. He still has a ways to go, of course.
Apr 19 - 3:01 AM

Jake Peavy was pounded for six runs and 11 hits in four innings by the Rockies on Wednesday.

Peavy gave up 10 extra-base hits, including six doubles. Last year, just two pitchers (Chris Heston and Chris Rusin) gave up as many as six doubles in an outing. Not surprisingly, those two performances, like this one tonight, came at Coors Field. Peavy now finds himself with a 10.00 ERA after two starts, but assuming that he's healthy, he should maintain some value in NL-only leagues. In mixed leagues, he's merely a streaming option in his home starts.
Apr 14 - 12:29 AM

Jake Peavy was lifted after allowing four runs and 10 hits in five innings against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Unfortunately, he would have needed to go one more inning to get a win (that went to Chris Heston). Peavy threw just 79 pitches in his five frames, but as much as he was getting hit, sticking with him any longer didn't seem like a very good idea. Peavy is no longer a full-time play in mixed leagues at this stage of his career.
Apr 7 - 8:01 PM

Jake Peavy allowed two hits over five innings and combined with four relievers on a shutout of the A's on Friday.

Peavy entered with a 7.43 ERA, though that's just about par for the course in Arizona this year. This one took place in San Francisco, and it worked out a whole lot better for him. Peavy can't throw the ball by a lot of hitters these day, and he's likely to remain more of a streaming option in mixed leagues than an every-week guy. That said, he should still be pretty solid while healthy.
Apr 2 - 1:35 AM

Jake Peavy permitted eight hits, three runs (two earned) and one walk in four innings Thursday in a win over the Padres.

Peavy did a nice job of damage control by stranding seven runners on Thursday. The fact there were seven runners to strand isn’t a good sign, but Peavy isn’t expected to be a finished product this early in the year. The 34-year-old had a hard time keeping the ball in the yard, giving up home runs to Matt Kemp and Jon Jay. He’ll be the Giants’ No. 4 starter this year behind Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija.
Mar 18 - 1:20 AM

Jake Peavy allowed three runs on five hits over three innings Saturday against the Angels.

Peavy served up a two-run home run to Albert Pujols among his five hits allowed. The veteran right-hander also walked two while striking out one. Cactus League play hasn't been kind to Peavy so far, as he now has a 10.38 ERA in 7 2/3 innings of work. He may round into form, but it's hard to see the 34-year-old replicating his 3.58 ERA from a year ago, even without his miserable spring thus far.
Mar 12 - 7:11 PM

Jake Peavy yielded two runs on five hits over three frames on Monday versus the Rangers.

He struck out a pair and didn't walk anyone. It wasn't a great outing for the veteran but a much better showing than Peavy put up last week in his Cactus League debut. The right-hander was limited to just 19 starts last season due to injury.
Mar 7 - 7:23 PM

Jake Peavy was hammered for six runs (five earned) over 1 2/3 innings in his Cactus League debut Thursday against the Brewers.

Just getting his work in, we’re sure. Peavy gave up hits to nine out of the 14 batters he faced, including a two-run blast to Chris Carter. On the bright side, he came back to strike out Carter in the second inning. Peavy, who turns 35 in May, had a 3.58 ERA over 19 starts last season and should have the fourth or fifth spot in San Francisco’s rotation.
