Astros SP Brad Peacock undergoes hip surgery
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(10/28/14) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his right hip recently, the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock is not expected to be ready for spring training, which makes it possible he has to open the season on the disabled list. He went 4-9 with a 4.72 ERA and 119:70 K:BB ratio in 131 2/3 innings.

Brad Peacock struggles Friday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/19/14) Astros starter Brad Peacock had a rough start Friday against the Mariners.
Peacock allowed seven runs, two earned, on six hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked four during the outing. Peacock did well in his first two innings, but ran into trouble in the third. Dustin Ackley belted a solo shot off Peacock tying the game 1-1. Things really fell apart in the fourth, though. After two errors put two men on base, Peacock gave up a three-run homer to Mike Zunino. After two walks, he allowed an RBI single against Robinson Cano. Peacock was pulled from the game at that point. The next batter would club a three-run shot. Two of those runs were charged to Peacock, though they were unearned due to the errors.
With the loss, Peacock dropped to 4-9. He’ll take on the Rangers in his next start.
Brad Peacock start Friday pushes Dallas Keuchel back a day
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Astros right-hander Brad Peacock, who lost his Monday start to back soreness, has returned to the rotation, thanks to a pain-free bullpen session Tuesday. He is set to start Friday night against Seattle, the Houston Chronicle has reported.
The move pushes ace lefty Dallas Keuchel back to Saturday, giving him an extra day of rest.
Astros return to a five-man rotation for now
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/14/14) The Astros are skipping Brad Peacock's scheduled start on Monday against the Indians, as he is dealing with a sore lower back. Rather than replace Peacock, the Astros will move up their other five starters a day and, at least temporarily, put an end to their six-man rotation. Collin McHugh, Nick Tropeano, Brett Oberholtzer and Scott Feldman are now set to start against the Indians, and Dallas Keuchel will take the mound to open the weekend series against the Mariners on Friday.
There is currently no timetable for Peacock's return.
|2014 summary: At times, Brad Peacock has been able to throw strikes with consistency in the minors, but as a major leaguer he has had major control problems. His second season with the Astros was no exception; Peacock walked 70 batters in 131 2/3 innings. Peacock didn't help himself by allowing 20 home runs, which aided in lifting his ERA to 4.72 and sinking his record to 4-9 over 24 starts and four relief appearances.|
Playing time status: Peacock is almost certain to begin the season on the disabled list, as he is recovering from offseason hip surgery. When he is ready to return, he could reclaim the fifth starter's role.
2015 outlook: Peacock is a decent strikeout pitcher, but without better control and stronger ground ball tendencies he is a risk to own in any format. He is also far from a sure thing to be in the Astros' rotation, so he can be passed over in practically all leagues.
