Jake Peavy improved to 4-6 after allowing two runs in seven innings Friday against the Phillies.
Since falling to 1-5 with an 8.21 ERA on May 20, Peavy is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA in his last six starts. It's not enough to make him a quality pickup in mixed leagues again, but the Giants will certainly take it. Jun 25 - 2:07 AM

Jake Peavy was defrauded more than $15 million by a financial adviser, according to a filing Tuesday by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Retired pitcher Roy Oswalt and NFL quarterback Mark Sanchez were also involved in this fraudulent scheme, per the filing in U.S. District Court. The SEC is seeking to freeze the assets of this adviser, a man named Ash Narayan, and recoup more than $33 million that he took from the three pro athletes. Peavy told the San Francisco Chronicle that he learned about the fraud on the first day of spring training. "I think I did the best I could to stay focused," he said. "Maybe at times I haven't done my best, but I think the last month is indicative of what I can do to help this team. I’m doing what I can to push the needle forward."

Jake Peavy posted one of his better starts of the season in Sunday's no-decision against the Rays, yielding one run on four hits over six innings.

Peavy struck out eight and walked just one on the afternoon. The nice performance was a surprise, to say the least. Even with this strong outing in the books, the veteran right-hander still holds an undesirable 5.47 ERA and 1.44 WHIP. He will try to repeat Sunday's result in a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.

Jake Peavy's (neck) next scheduled start has been pushed back from Saturday to Sunday.

Peavy is dealing with some minor neck stiffness, so the Giants decided to take advantage of the schedule and give him an extra day of rest. Albert Suarez will face the Rays on Saturday.
Jun 17 - 5:57 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Jake Peavy (neck) should be fine for his next scheduled start against the Rays this weekend.

Peavy dealt with neck stiffness leading into Sunday's start against the Dodgers, but it didn't stop him from throwing six scoreless innings. Barring a setback, the veteran right-hander should be good to go for his next turn.
Jun 13 - 8:49 PM

Jake Peavy was terrific in Sunday night's victory over the Dodgers, firing six shutout innings and allowing only four hits and a walk.

Peavy punched out three on the evening. He was highly economical in this one, needing just 90 pitches to complete his six frames. Peavy has been highly inconsistent this season, compiling a 3-6 record, 5.83 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. He'll look to carry over the momentum from this fine performance when he takes on the Rays in Tampa Bay on Saturday.
Jun 12 - 11:42 PM

Jake Peavy struggled in a losing effort against the Cardinals on Sunday night, allowing four runs on five hits over five-plus innings of work.

Peavy struck out five on the night and issued a pair of walks. He kept the Cardinals offense mostly at bay for the majority of the evening, until the wheels fell off and they struck for four runs while chasing Peavy in the sixth. Now 2-6 on the season, Peavy will look to improve upon a disastrous 6.41 ERA and 1.56 WHIP when he does battle against the Dodgers at home on Sunday.
Jun 5 - 11:17 PM

Jake Peavy turned in a surprising gem Tuesday, holding the Braves to one hit over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory.

Peavy entered the game with a 7.26 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season, so this was unexpected even in a juicy matchup. The veteran right-hander permitted a leadoff single to Tyler Flowers in the fifth inning and that was it, as he faced the minimum through seven frames. He had thrown only 77 pitches, but manager Bruce Bochy had no choice but to pinch-hit for Peavy as the offense rallied in the eighth. Peavy will have a much tougher matchup on Sunday in St. Louis.
May 31 - 10:07 PM

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.
