Astros optioned RHP Brad Peacock to Triple-A Fresno.
An intercostal strain limited the 28-year-old Peacock to 11 2/3 innings between the majors and the minors last season. He's far down on the depth chart at this point, but he can earn his way back into relevancy if he stays healthy. Mar 23 - 2:10 PM

Brad Peacock walked three and gave up two runs in 1 2/3 innings Sunday against the Pirates.

Peacock missed most of 2015 with an intercostal strain and a back injury and he wasn't very good last time he was healthy in 2014, so he's destined to open this year in Triple-A. He's always had a quality arm, but walks and home runs have left him with a 4.69 ERA in 41 starts and nine relief appearances as a major leaguer.

Brad Peacock (back) said Tuesday that he's 100 percent for spring training.

Peacock made just one start in the majors in 2015 due to an intercostal strain and required surgery in August to remove bone spurs in his back. The procedure was aimed at alleviated pressure on a pinched nerve and it was apparently successful. Peacock turns 28 in February and posted a 4.72 ERA and 119/70 K/BB ratio over 131 2/3 innings in 2014. While he's healthy now, he'll have to earn his way back on the radar.

Astros activated RHP Brad Peacock from the 60-day disabled list.

Peacock made just one start in 2015 before an intercostal strain cost him the rest of the season. Suddenly a postseason contender, the Astros might not have a starting spot waiting for Peacock upon his return next year.

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.

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.
Mon, Jun 1, 2015 05:13:00 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.
Fri, May 29, 2015 04:40:00 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.

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.
Wed, Apr 22, 2015 11:16:00 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.
