Brad Peacock will start the season in the bullpen for the Astros.
The Astros had every reason to hope Peacock won a starting job with a good spring, but the right-hander pitched his way out of a spot by posting a 10.80 ERA in his only five official innings this spring. The 26-year-old may still have a future as a starter with the club, but he'll need to improve on his dismal Grapefruit League showing to earn it. Mar 26 - 9:37 PM

Brad Peacock finished up Sunday's loss to the Nationals, allowing one run in four innings and striking out four.

That's a much better result for Peacock, who gave up five runs in one inning in his only previous official outing this spring. Of course, he was facing all minor leaguers in this one since he didn't come in until the sixth. Peacock entered camp with a rotation spot to lose, and he probably still has one. He needs to keep building on this outing, though.
Mar 16 - 5:54 PM

Brad Peacock was torched for five runs in his inning against the Tigers on Saturday.

A rotation spot appears to be Peacock's to lose the spring, but the Astros do have competition, especially in light of the Jerome Williams signing. Regardless of what Peacock does from here, he's going to have an ugly ERA for a few weeks.
Mar 1 - 4:28 PM

Brad Peacock allowed three runs over six innings in a loss against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Peacock allowed six hits and a walk in the outing while striking out seven. The loss leaves his line at 5-6 with a 5.18 ERA in 83 1/3 innings this season.

Brad Peacock allowed four runs -- three earned -- over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday.

Peacock had been pretty good in two starts leading into Wednesday's game, but the Reds got to him for six hits and three walks on the night. The no-decision keeps his record at 5-5 and he owns a 5.24 ERA on the year. He draws a tough assignment at the Rangers next week.

Brad Peacock hurled six innings of one-run ball, scattering three hits, in Wednesday's victory over the Mariners.

Peacock struck out four and walked one. He earned his second consecutive quality start. Peacock has gone 2-0 in those starts and given up only three runs in 13 innings, slashing his ERA from 5.98 to 5.27. Cincinnati's powerful offense will provide a good barometer to gauge Peacock's progress next week.

Brad Peacock fired seven innings of one-run ball, striking out nine, on Thursday against the A's.

Peacock took the mound earlier this evening sporting an ugly 5.98 ERA, coming off a pair of outings in which he coughed up nine runs over 10 1/3 innings. He proceeded to stymie the 80-59 A's, and in so doing gave the Astros win No. 47. Peacock's next matchup on Wednesday in Seattle is strong enough to consider employing in AL-only formats.

Brad Peacock surrendered five runs over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Mariners on Friday.

Peacock gave up seven hits and four walks while throwing just 55 out of 103 pitches for strikes. While he was solid in his previous two starts, he still has an ugly 5.98 ERA and 52/31 K/BB ratio over 58 2/3 innings in the majors this season. The Astros have little to lose by continuing to give him starts down the stretch, but he's likely bullpen-bound in the long run.
Fri, Aug 30, 2013 11:49:00 PM

Brad Peacock yielded two runs in 6 1/3 innings Friday in a victory over the Angels.

Peacock has turned in three straight quality starts since returning to the majors, striking out 20 in 19 1/3 innings during the span. Because the Astros are using six starters, Peacock won't pitch again until he faces the Blue Jays next Friday. He remains a risky play in AL-only leagues.
Sat, Aug 17, 2013 11:41:00 AM

The Astros plan to use a six-man rotation through the end of August.

They'll re-evaluate the plan after rosters expand. The strong showings of Brad Peacock and Brett Oberholtzer of late surely helped the Astros with their decision.

In his return to the majors, Brad Peacock struck out 10 and allowed three runs over seven innings in a loss to the Twins on Sunday.

Recalled earlier in the day, he gave up four hits and two walks. All three runs charged to Peacock came via homers. Take away the mistake pitches to Justin Morneau and Oswaldo Arcia, however, and Peacock was sensational. This was a strong bid to remain in the rotation for the rest of the year. Although Peacock struggled at the big league level earlier this season, he posted a stellar 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 76/22 K/BB ratio in 79 innings at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Astros recalled RHP Brad Peacock from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Peacock will start on Sunday in Minnesota and could stick in the rotation over the long haul if he pitches well. The righty has struggled at the big league level this season but boasts a 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 76/22 K/BB ratio in 79 innings at Oklahoma City.

Brad Peacock will start for the Astros on Sunday.

If it goes well, he might be allowed to finish out the year in the Houston rotation. Peacock, 25, has posted a promising 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 76/22 K/BB ratio in 79 innings (13 starts) this season at Triple-A Oklahoma City. But he has struggled at the major league level and shouldn't be trusted in any fantasy format.
Sat, Aug 3, 2013 05:22:00 PM

Astros optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Peacock worked 3 1/3 solid innings of relief on Saturday, surrendering one run on two hits. He was sent out to make room on the roster for the recently acquired Wade LeBlanc who will be activated on Sunday. Peacock should be back with the Astros at some point during the season.

Astros recalled RHP Brad Peacock from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

He'll take the roster spot of Robbie Grossman, who was optioned to the minors after Monday's game. Peacock had a 4.98 ERA and 27 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings after his demotion to Triple-A earlier this month and figures to pitch in middle relief.
