(7/24/14) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock was knocked around in Wednesday's loss, giving up seven earned runs on seven hits and five walks in 3 2/3 innings while striking out three in his team's 9-7 defeat against the A's.
Peacock (3-7) served up two home runs in a five-run second inning and another homer in the two-run fourth, putting his team in a deep hole early. It was the worst outing of the season for Peacock, who owns a 4.93 ERA and 77:48 K:BB ratio in 87 2/3 innings. He's set to face the A's again Monday.
|Brad Peacock pulled after one out Sunday vs. Boston |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(7/13/14) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock was unable to locate his pitches and was pulled after only one out Sunday afternoon against the Red Sox, dropping to 3-6 on the year.
Peacock served up a solo home run to Brock Holt in the opening frame for his only damage of the afternoon. He was charged with one run on two hits and one walk while striking out one in one-third of an inning in an 11-0 defeat.
Peacock enters the break with a 4.39 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 84 innings of work. His next start after the break will come July 23 at Oakland.
|Astros set second-half rotation |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(7/12/14) The Astros have set their rotation following the All-Star break, at least through the first two series.
Manager Bo Porter announced that Scott Feldman, Dallas Keuchel and Jarred Cosart will open the second half in a weekend series against the White Sox, and will be followed by Collin McHugh and Brad Peacock to open a series in Oakland beginning Tuesday.
|Brad Peacock pulls off a win Tuesday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock picked up a win Tuesday against the Rangers.
Peacock allowed two earned runs over 5 2/3 innings. He gave up six hits, but did not allow any walks. Peacock did manage to punch out five batters during the outing.
Leonys Martin did all the damage against Peacock during the game. Martin hit a solo shot off Peacock in the second, and followed that up with a sac fly in the fourth. Peacock was pulled after throwing 94 pitches.
The win brings Peacock to 3-5 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the White Sox.
|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.
