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.

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.
May 20 - 1:31 PM

Brad Peacock was perfect for two innings Tuesday in relief against the Angels.

The Astros figured they'd get great middle relief work from Chris Devenski. They weren't necessarily counting on the same from Peacock, who might not have made the team if he hadn't been out of options. Still, he has allowed just one hit and struck out 11 in 7 2/3 innings to date. He could soon find himself in the rotation at this rate.
Apr 19 - 1:22 AM

Brad Peacock allowed one run and four hits in three innings Friday against the Red Sox.

Peacock was making his third start of the spring. He's also relieved four times. Overall, he has a 5.84 ERA and a 6/4 K/BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings. There's very little chance of him making the Astros rotation, and if he has a spot in the pen, it'll be because he's out of options. The guess here is that he goes on waivers and opens the year in another team's bullpen.
Mar 17 - 5:48 PM

Brad Peacock was pounded for five runs in three innings by the Nationals on Thursday.

Peacock is out of options and doesn't figure to make the Astros rotation, so he's auditioning for the entire league this spring. This one won't help his cause, but at least he was facing regulars; he gave up a three-run homer to Jayson Werth in the first and a solo shot to Anthony Rendon in the third.
Mar 2 - 5:30 PM

Brad Peacock started against the Tigers on Saturday and delivered two scoreless innings on two hits while fanning one.

He figures to begin the season in the bullpen but will try to beat out Mike Fiers and Joe Musgrove for the fifth rotation slot early in the spring. He finished last season with a 3.69 ERA in 31 2/2 innings split between five starts and five relief appearances.
Feb 25 - 5:23 PM

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 13, 2016 11:12:00 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.
Sat, Sep 10, 2016 11:32:00 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.

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.

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.

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.
