Brad Peacock moved to 8-1 on Tuesday after limiting the Mariners to one run in seven innings.
Peacock wasn't very good in March and it wouldn't have been a big surprise to see the Astros put him on waivers, since he was out of options. Fortunately, they didn't go that route, and he's turned out to be an absolute stud, amassing a 1.10 ERA in 12 relief appearances and now a 2.92 ERA in 10 starts. He's fanned 93 batters in 68 2/3 innings. Jul 18 - 11:39 PM

Brad Peacock spun six scoreless innings Sunday in the Astros’ win over the Blue Jays.

The Jays managed five hits off Peacock but couldn’t push any runs across as the Astros cruised to a breezy 19-1 victory. Peacock’s command was spotty at times—he issued five walks on the afternoon—but Toronto never truly threatened the right-hander. The 29-year-old has made a smooth rotation to the rotation after beginning the year in Houston’s bullpen. He’s compiled a stellar 1.99 ERA during his four-game winning streak.

Brad Peacock moved to 6-1 after allowing three runs in six-plus innings Tuesday against the Braves.

Peacock had a shutout going until the seventh, when he allowed five straight batters to reach. Fortunately for him, Ashur Tolliver was able to prevent the leftover runners from scoring after taking over with none out in the frame. Even though he got to face the opposing starter for once, Peacock struck out just seven tonight, a mild upset for someone averaging 13.2 K/9 IP.
Jul 4 - 11:51 PM

Despite six walks, Brad Peacock held the A's to one run in five innings Thursday.

It helped that he allowed just two hits and struck out seven. Incredibly, Peacock has been an even bigger source of strikeouts as a starter (51 in 33 1/3 innings) than he was as a reliever (22 in 16 1/3 innings). It's the 30 walks this season that's holding him back; he needed 106 pitches to get through five innings today. He's worth playing right now, but he needs to be more efficient to become a real asset in mixed leagues.

Astros activated RHP Brad Peacock from the paternity leave list.

Peacock is slated to start Thursday against the Athletics. Jordan Jankowski was sent down in a corresponding move.

Astros placed RHP Brad Peacock on the paternity leave list.

His first child, a baby boy, was born on Friday. Peacock had been scheduled to start Sunday versus the Mariners. Instead, rookie Francis Martes will draw the start in his place. Peacock should be back for his next turn in the rotation.
Jun 24 - 5:51 PM

Brad Peacock allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings in a win Monday at Oakland.

Peacock and the Houston pitching staff went hard on the Athletics lineup, as Jed Lowrie was the only Oakland starter to escape without at least one strikeout. Peacock improved to 4-1 while lowering his ERA to 2.82. He has struck out 44 strikeouts over the past 28 1/3 innings and has looked great over his last two starts. If he can continue to limit his free passes and go deeper into games he might be a major fantasy asset.
Jun 20 - 1:42 AM

Brad Peacock struck out 10 while allowing one run in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Rangers.

Manager A.J. Hinch didn't manage to get his starter the win tonight, removing Peacock from a 2-1 game with one out to go. Maybe it would have worked out differently if Peacock hadn't been pitching on three days' rest as a result of Lance McCullers' injury. Peacock's strikeout rate is something to behold -- he's fanned 59 batters in 39 innings -- but he has to get the walks under control. He issued four tonight, which led to his quick hook.
Jun 14 - 12:51 AM

Brad Peacock will move up a day to start Tuesday against the Rangers on three days' rest.

He's taking Lance McCullers' (back) spot, and Francis Martes will slide into Peacock's old spot on Wednesday. Peacock struggled in his last outing, allowing four runs over just three innings against the Angels. He would figure to be fairly limited from a pitch count perspective Tuesday, although he did throw just 76 pitches last Friday.
Jun 12 - 4:28 PM

Brad Peacock took his first loss after giving up four runs and walking four in three innings Friday against the Angels.

Peacock's stuff has taken a step forward this year, but he's always had control problems and he's now walked 18 in 34 1/3 innings for the season. We want to see him keep starting for the time being, but he might make more sense in the pen for the long haul.
Jun 10 - 1:32 AM

Brad Peacock yielded two runs on four hits over six innings in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Outside of a solo Rougned Odor homer in the fifth inning and and a Joey Gallo RBI single in the sixth, Peacock managed to keep the Rangers off the scoreboard over his six innings of work. He finished with nine strikeouts against just one walk. In three starts since shifting over to the rotation near the end of May, Peacock has allowed five runs on nine hits over 15 innings. He will continue to settle into his new role when he plays host to the Angels next time out.
Jun 4 - 6:30 PM

Brad Peacock was charged with four runs over 4 2/3 innings in Monday’s start against the Twins.

Peacock struck out eight and walked just one. The outing was better than it looked, as Peacock held the Twins scoreless through the first four innings before he unraveled in the fifth. The final two runs on his ledger scored after he was pulled from the game. Peacock is still in the process of getting stretched out, so we’re expecting better things moving forward. Stick with him in deeper fantasy formats.
May 29 - 6:13 PM

Brad Peacock will start Monday against the Twins.

For now it appears Peacock has supplanted Mike Fiers in the starting rotation. Peacock impressed in a spot start last week, holding the Orioles to one hit over 4 1/3 shutout innings. The right-hander carries a 4.31 ERA over 47 big league starts.
May 27 - 7:58 PM

Brad Peacock worked 4 1/3 innings of shutout ball in a spot start Monday versus the Tigers.

Peacock was rushed into emergency starting duties after Dallas Keuchel landed on the 10-day disabled list this weekend with a pinched nerve in his neck. The right-hander allowed just one hit and two walks while striking out eight of the 16 batters he faced. A dominant force this season out of the Houston bullpen, Peacock now boasts a 0.87 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 20 2/3 total innings. It's not clear whether he is going to get another start.
May 22 - 11:40 PM

Brad Peacock will start in place of the injured Dallas Keuchel on Monday.

Peacock has been a dominant force out of the Astros' bullpen this season, posting a 1.10 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 22/10 K/BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings. Given the fact that he isn't stretched out though, he isn't a recommended streaming option as he's unlikely to last five innings.
