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."

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.

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.

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.
Apr 10 - 2:12 PM

Brad Peacock (hip) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment later this week.

Peacock underwent surgery on his hip last October and was placed on the disabled list April 1, retroactive to March 30. He got into one spring training game and should only need a couple of minor league rehab starts. The 27-year-old right-hander is likely to become an option for the Astros' rotation in late April.
Apr 6 - 3:59 PM

Astros place RHP Brad Peacock on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a right hip injury.

This move was expected. Peacock's been working his way back from offseason hip surgery. He made his spring debut on Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) in two-thirds of an inning. He'll rehab in the minors for the first month of the season.
Apr 1 - 10:40 AM

Brad Peacock gave up four runs -- three earned -- over two-thirds of an inning in his spring debut Sunday against the Yankees.

Peacock is being brought along slowly after hip surgery, and he'll spend the first month of the season on a rehab assignment in the minors. If he does well, he could join the Astros rotation afterwards.
Mar 29 - 4:47 PM

Brad Peacock (hip) will make his Grapefruit League debut on Sunday.

Peacock has been brought along slowly this spring as he works his way back from last October's hip surgery. He'll begin the season on the disabled list but could be an option for the Astros relatively early on in the year.
Mar 29 - 11:36 AM

Brad Peacock (hip) could throw in a Grapefruit League game on Sunday.

Peacock, who is coming off October hip surgery, pitched in a minor league intrasquad game on Tuesday. He could be DL-bound for the start of the season, but he's not far off.
Mar 25 - 12:15 PM

Astros manager A.J. Hinch said that Brad Peacock (hip) threw in a minor league intrasquad game Tuesday.

Peacock was originally scheduled to pitch Monday, but the outing got pushed back due to rain. The 27-year-old is working his way back from October hip surgery and doesn't have enough time to get stretched out for a rotation spot. Odds are he'll begin the season on the disabled list and go on a minor league rehab assignment.
Mar 24 - 3:22 PM

Brad Peacock (hip) is scheduled to throw in a minor league game on Monday.

As long as everything goes well, he should then be cleared to work in a big league game at some point in the next two weeks. His availability for the start of the regular season remains in question.
Mar 21 - 11:48 AM

Brad Peacock (hip) said he felt "awesome" after throwing live batting practice to hitters Saturday.

Peacock threw two sets of 20 pitches to minor leaguers and came out of the session pleased. The next step is for Peacock to throw and field in a simulated game. It's unclear when that will happen. The right-hander will likely begin the season on the disabled list but could rejoin the Astros in mid-April if things continue to progress.
