Brad Peacock surrendered seven runs -- five earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Angels.
Peacock had a nice outing against the Angels five days ago, but the rematch turned ugly, erasing a lot of the good he did in his first four starts after joining the Astros rotation this month (2.25 ERA in 20 IP). He'll make next to nothing next year, so the Astros will probably keep him around as an option for the fifth spot in their rotation. Still, they do have greater talents to pick from. Oct 1 - 1:13 AM

Brad Peacock held the Angels to one run in five innings, allowing only one hit and two walks while striking out seven batters on Saturday but had to settle for a no-decision.

His bullpen got hammered to blow the game in the late innings. The only hit he allowed was an RBI double to Albert Pujols with Mike Trout aboard. He pitched very well but was removed after only 69 pitches. This was just his fifth start and the Astros didn't want to push him too hard. He owns a great 2.67 ERA after 27 innings. He has yet to earn a win or a loss this year.

Brad Peacock allowed two runs and three hits over 5 1/3 innings Monday against the A's.

Unfortunately, two of the three hits were homers. Still, it was a decent outing against an offense that has been scorching recently. Peacock will get the Angels at home next, making him a decent streaming option.

Brad Peacock held the Rangers to one run over six innings Tuesday but didn't factor in the decision.

Peacock was masterful, allowing only three hits -- including an Adrian Beltre solo homer -- and two walks while striking out five, and he left in line for his first win of the year. Closer Ken Giles' blown save in the ninth inning prevented Peacock from earning that win, but it was still a strong turn in his second big league start this year. Peacock has a 2.70 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 16 2/3 innings overall, and the Astros will surely give him at least one more start given his recent success. That start should come early next week against the Athletics.
Sep 13 - 11:12 PM

Brad Peacock will make another start for the Astros on Tuesday against the Rangers.

There had been speculation that Peacock wouldn't get another start after lasting just 3 2/3 innings against the Indians on Tuesday, but the Astros don't have many better options to take that turn in the rotation. He'll probably be on a very short leash again with the expanded bullpen that the Astros have, making him a poor bet as a streaming option in fantasy leagues.
Sep 10 - 11:32 AM

Brad Peacock allowed just one run but lasted only 3 2/3 frames in a spot start in Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Indians.

While he surrendered just one run, Peacock allowed five hits and walked one, throwing 72 pitches over his 3 2/3 innings. Astros manager A.J. Hinch wasn't fooling around with expanded rosters, giving Peacock the hook. It seems unlikely that the righty will get another start.
Sep 6 - 10:55 PM

Astros recalled RHP Brad Peacock from Triple-A Fresno.

He'll start in place of Dallas Keuchel (shoulder) against the Indians on Tuesday. Peacock has made one start in the majors dating back to 2014 and posted a posted a 4.23 ERA and 119/40 K/BB ratio over 117 innings this season in Triple-A. He doesn't come recommended in fantasy leagues.
Sep 6 - 9:47 AM

The Astros will call up right-hander Brad Peacock from Triple-A Fresno to start against the Indians on Tuesday.

He'll be starting in place of Dallas Keuchel, who has flown back to Houston to be examined by doctors. Peacock has made five appearances with the Astros this season and posted a 4.23 ERA and 119/40 K/BB ratio over 117 innings this season in Triple-A. He's not a recommended fantasy play with this matchup.
Sep 5 - 5:07 PM

Astros optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Fresno.

The move clears a spot for Colby Rasmus' return from the disabled list. Peacock has made five appearances with the Astros this season and owns a 4.23 ERA over 21 starts in Triple-A. He should be back in September.
Aug 30 - 3:53 PM

Astros recalled RHP Brad Peacock from Triple-A Fresno.

Peacock holds a 4.23 ERA with a strikeout per inning at Fresno this season. He'll work in long relief with the Astros.
Aug 19 - 4:01 PM

Astros optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Fresno.

Peacock was only with the club for a couple of days to provide an extra bullpen arm while Doug Fister was away on paternity leave. He should get another shot with the big league club when rosters expand in September.
Aug 6 - 8:24 AM

Astros recalled RHP Brad Peacock from Triple-A Fresno.

Peacock has registered a 4.13 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 102/35 K/BB ratio in 102 1/3 innings (19 starts) this season at Triple-A. The 28-year-old right-hander will presumably pitch in long relief with Houston.
Aug 3 - 2:30 PM

Astros optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Fresno.

An intercostal strain limited the 28-year-old Peacock to 11 2/3 innings between the majors and the minors last season. He's far down on the depth chart at this point, but he can earn his way back into relevancy if he stays healthy.
Mar 23 - 2:10 PM

Brad Peacock walked three and gave up two runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday against the Pirates.

Peacock missed most of 2015 with an intercostal strain and a back injury and he wasn't very good last time he was healthy in 2014, so he's destined to open this year in Triple-A. He's always had a quality arm, but walks and home runs have left him with a 4.69 ERA in 41 starts and nine relief appearances as a major leaguer.
Mar 6 - 5:18 PM

Brad Peacock (back) said Tuesday that he's 100 percent for spring training.

Peacock made just one start in the majors in 2015 due to an intercostal strain and required surgery in August to remove bone spurs in his back. The procedure was aimed at alleviated pressure on a pinched nerve and it was apparently successful. Peacock turns 28 in February and posted a 4.72 ERA and 119/70 K/BB ratio over 131 2/3 innings in 2014. While he's healthy now, he'll have to earn his way back on the radar.
