Astros transferred RHP Brad Peacock from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Peacock suffered an intercostal strain in his first start and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since. He was close to coming back but suffered a setback during a rehab appearance on June 11. Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija should be available if the Astros choose to upgrade their starting rotation at the trade deadline.

Brad Peacock (intercostal) hopes to resume throwing off a mound next week.

Peacock had a setback with his intercostal strain earlier this month but was cleared to resume throwing after having an MRI last Friday. There's no timetable for his return.

Brad Peacock (intercostal) is set to undergo an MRI on Friday.

Peacock suffered a setback in his recovery and returned back to Houston to be examined last week. He has been on the disabled list since mid-April due to the intercostal injury, so the Astros are hopeful the MRI will give them a better understanding of what's going on and a potential timetable for his return.

Brad Peacock (intercostal) is returning to Houston after suffering a setback in his recovery.

The severity of the setback remains unclear at the moment, but it will certainly push Peacock's potential return to the Astros back until July. The Astros should have an update on his status after he is reevaluated.
Jun 13 - 1:43 PM

Brad Peacock (intercostal) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Thursday with Double-A Corpus Christi.

Peacock landed on the disabled list in mid-April -- after making just one start -- with a left intercostal strain. And it's no longer clear how he might fit into the Astros' plans once he is deemed fully health. The right-hander will probably be in the minors for a couple of weeks while that gets sorted out.

Brad Peacock (intercostal) will throw live batting practice on Saturday.

It will be his first time facing hitters since he was diagnosed with a left intercostal strain back in mid-April. Peacock has been limited to just one start in the majors this season due to injury.
Jun 1 - 5:13 PM

Brad Peacock (intercostal) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday.

It was the first time he's thrown off a mound since going on the disabled list in mid-April with a left intercostal strain. There's no timetable for Peacock's return, but it will be a while since he'll need a rehab assignment first and is just now throwing from the bump again.
May 29 - 4:40 PM

Brad Peacock (intercostal) made 20 throws from 60 feet and 20 throws from 90 feet on Tuesday.

Peacock told reporters that he's feeling good and has progressed to daily throwing sessions. He should soon step back atop a mound. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since April 17 with a left intercostal strain. He's likely to be ready around early June.
May 12 - 4:26 PM

Brad Peacock (intercostal) was given a platelet-rich plasma injection in his left side on Thursday.

Nursing a left intercostal strain, Peacock hopes to resume playing catch within the next week. He's expected to be sidelined for several weeks. "I still feel it," Peacock said Thursday. "I got a PRP injection today. It was my first one. I had never had one before. We’ll see how it works and go from there."
May 1 - 10:08 AM

Brad Peacock's intercostal strain could force him to miss several weeks.

"I’m not sure I would look too much further past that (May) and we won’t know until he starts throwing, but it could last a little while," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said when asked if Peacock could return sometime next month. Peacock suffered the strain on April 14 and was placed on the disabled list three days later. It's fair to assume we won't see Peacock any time soon.
Apr 22 - 11:16 PM

Astros placed RHP Brad Peacock on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a left intercostal strain.

Peacock just came off the DL from hip surgery to make a start Tuesday and is now back on it. Asher Wojciechowski has taken his roster and rotation spot.
Apr 17 - 3:49 PM

Brad Peacock took the loss Tuesday against the Athletics, yielding three runs in five innings.

Peacock was just activated from the disabled list after undergoing hip surgery in October. It was a decent enough debut, as the right-hander gave up five hits and walked two while striking out three. The A's scored once in the first on a sacrifice fly and twice in the sixth, ostensibly as Peacock tired. He'll take on the powerful Mariners' lineup in Seattle in his next start.
Apr 14 - 11:22 PM

Astros activated RHP Brad Peacock from the 15-day disabled list.

He was originally scheduled to make one more rehab start Tuesday, but the Astros have decided to give him the ball against the A's instead after Asher Wojciechowski was needed in relief Monday. Peacock underwent surgery on his hip last October but has rehabbed well and should hold down a rotation spot at least until Brett Oberholtzer (blister) is ready.
Apr 13 - 11:22 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Friday that Brad Peacock (hip) could need just one more rehab start.

The Astros were pleased with how Peacock looked during his 88-pitch rehab outing on Thursday. "Good review on stuff and endurance," Hinch said. It's not a given that Peacock will be added to the rotation when he's ready, but the Astros will be happy to have him as an option soon.
