Brad Peacock got a no-decision, lasting just 4 2/3 innings despite allowing one run in Friday's victory over the Mets.
Peacock was actually in line for the loss until the Astros staged a sixth-inning rally. He made one mistake, resulting in a solo home run for Curtis Granderson in the fourth inning. Overall, he gave up four hits, walked two, and struck out seven. Peacock did not have great results in 2014, finishing with a 4-9 record, a 4.72 ERA, a 1.57 WHIP, and a 119/70 K/BB ratio.

Brad Peacock was knocked around for seven runs (two earned) in 3 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Mariners.

Peacock gave up six hits (including two home runs) and was pulled in the middle of a seven-run fourth inning. Fortunately for those who were streaming him in fantasy leagues on Friday, five of the runs were unearned. The 26-year-old right-hander has a 4.82 ERA and 112/67 K/BB ratio in 127 innings over 23 starts and four relief appearances this season and will wrap up the year with a start against the Mets next week in New York.

Brad Peacock (back) will rejoin the Astros' rotation on Friday against the Mariners.

Peacock had Monday's scheduled outing pushed back due to lower back tightness, but he's recovered nicely since then, throwing a successful bullpen session Tuesday. "I felt really good actually," Peacock said. "I let it go and it felt good, so they’re putting me in on Friday." Peacock holds a 2.90 ERA with 29 strikeouts over 31 innings across his last six starts. He's worth using in AL-only formats.

Brad Peacock will not make his scheduled start on Monday against the Indians due to lower back tightness.

He could rejoin the rotation at some point in the final weeks, but there's no timetable for his return. The Astros had been going with six starters, so they'll just return to a regular five-starter setup for now. Collin McHugh will move up to start on Monday and is now in line for a two-start week.
Sep 14 - 2:04 PM

Brad Peacock hurled five shutout innings in a Monday no-decision against the Mariners.

Peacock struck out six, walked two and scattered four hits. Unfortunately, he was pitching across from Felix Hernandez, so the game was tied 0-0 when Peacock made his way through the Safeco Field bowels to the shower area. The right-hander exorcised his Mariners demons tonight. Peacock came into the night having coughed up eight runs over 11 1/3 innings in two appearances against Seattle this year. Peacock is scheduled to take on the Indians next Monday.
Sep 9 - 1:56 AM

Brad Peacock allowed three runs -- two earned -- over 6 1/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Angels.

Peacock had surrendered only an unearned run through six innings, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. A walk, double and sacrifice fly plated a run, and another run scored after Peacock had left the game. Still, it was the third straight above-average start for Peacock in what's been an up-and-down season for the 26-year-old. Peacock will try to keep the ball rolling Monday at the Mariners.
Sep 3 - 12:10 AM

Brad Peacock pitched around five walks to hold the A's to one run in 5 1/3 innings on Wednesday.

Peacock also hit a batter and threw a wild pitch, but the A's couldn't get to him. In fact, their lone run off him came only after he left the game in the sixth, with Jonny Gomes delivering a sac fly. Peacock struck out six before departing. The no-decision was his fourth in a row, but since he had three consecutive losses prior to the current streak, this is better.
Aug 28 - 12:08 AM

Brad Peacock (forearm) is on track to make his scheduled start on Wednesday versus the Athletics.

Peacock skipped his normal between-starts bullpen session, but his tight forearm is not expected to keep him from taking the ball Wednesday. He holds a 5.30 ERA over 107 innings this season.
Aug 25 - 8:32 PM

Brad Peacock (forearm) doesn't think he'll miss his next scheduled start on Wednesday against the Athletics.

Peacock exited Friday's outing with right forearm tightness, an ailment that also forced him to miss a start back in May. However, the righty said Saturday that he felt better. "I’m just going to take today off from throwing and then probably play catch (Sunday) and see how it feels," he said. "It feels better today." The Astros won't know until at least Monday whether Peacock will be ready for his next outing.
Aug 24 - 11:00 AM

Brad Peacock allowed one run in five innings before leaving Friday's start against the Indians with an injury.

Through five innings, Peacock had only allowed two hits. He struck out four and didn't issue a walk. He was on his way to one of his strongest starts of the season before the undisclosed injury derailed him. Prior to this start, he had allowed fourteen runs in fourteen-plus August innings (three starts). Peacock holds an ERA of 5.40 and a WHIP of 1.64 on the year.
Aug 22 - 10:22 PM

Brad Peacock left Friday's start against the Indians with an undisclosed injury.

Peacock had been pretty good, holding the Indians to one run on two hits over five innings, before leaving with assistant athletic trainer Rex Jones before the bottom of the sixth inning. Peacock had thrown only 62 pitches before exiting. The Astros should provide an update shortly.
Aug 22 - 8:46 PM

Brad Peacock, making his first start in the majors since July 23, was pummeled by the top of the Phillies' lineup, allowing eight runs in five innings.

Peacock took the rotation spot of Jarred Cosart, who is now a Marlin. It didn't go exactly as Peacock planned. He yielded seven hits and walked four while striking out four. The game was manageable until Chase Utley ripped a three-run home run in the fourth to make it 8-2. Peacock has a 5.44 ERA, a 1.62 WHIP, and a 81/52 K/BB ratio, all ugly numbers he'll have to chip into when he takes on the Twins at home on Monday.
Aug 6 - 10:47 PM

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

He'll rejoin the rotation on Wednesday versus the Phillies, taking the departed Jarred Cosart's spot. Peacock has put up a 4.93 ERA and 1.59 WHIP over 87 2/3 innings this season and doesn't need to be owned in fantasy leagues.
Aug 6 - 12:35 AM

Brad Peacock will rejoin the Astros' rotation following the trade of Jarred Cosart.

Peacock holds a 4.93 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP over 87 2/3 innings this season and allowed seven runs across 3 2/3 frames in his last start. It's not clear when his next start will be, but he can safely be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Aug 1 - 10:26 AM

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

Peacock has a rough 4.93 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP in 15 starts and four relief appearances (87 2/3 innings) this season for the Astros. He gave up seven runs in 3 2/3 frames in his last start versus Oakland on Wednesday.
