|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.

(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.
|Brad Peacock gives Astros five scoreless frames in no-decision |

|Brad Peacock picks up a win Tuesday |

(9/2/14) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock picked up the win Tuesday against the Angels.
Peacock allowed three runs, two earned, on four hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. Peacock got off to a great start, tossing five scoreless innings to open the game. His first run came on an error in the sixth inning. With one out in the inning, Albert Pujols managed to reach on a throwing error. The error brought a run home.
Peacock was able to get out of the inning, but had some trouble in the seventh. After giving up a walk and double to open the frame, Peacock gave up another run on a sac fly. He was pulled at that point. Another run would come around to score, and was charged to Peacock.
With the win, Peacock improved to 4-8. He'll take on the Mariners in his next start.
|Brad Peacock's 2013 was sort of a microcosm of his entire career to that point. He was a nobody in the Nationals system before breaking through with a 15-3 record, 2.39 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 10.9 strikeouts per nine innings between Double- and Triple-A in 2011, but he hadn't done anything noteworthy in the years since. That includes his five starts with the Astros early in 2013 in which he compiled an 8.44 ERA. But something clicked for him when he went back to the minor leagues. Pitching for Triple-A Oklahoma City of the heavy-hitting Pacific Coast League, which ruined him as a prospect during that one season he spent in the Athletics organization, he went 6-2 with a 2.73 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 8.7 strikeouts per nine innings, looking much like the pitcher who emerged in 2011. Only this time, it carried over to the majors. In nine starts to close out the season, Peacock went 4-3 with a 3.64 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 8.9 strikeouts per nine innings. Adding a slider to his repertoire appeared to make all the difference. Obviously, nine starts aren't enough to draw any real conclusions, but Peacock's strong finish makes him a player to consider in the late rounds of Fantasy drafts.
