Astros' Brad Peacock throws pain-free bullpen session Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock threw 30 pitches in his third bullpen session of the spring Saturday and reported no pain in his hip, the Houston Chronicle reports.
"No pain," Peacock said. "I felt all right. My arm felt good. I was a little wild, but that’s normal. It was only my third bullpen, but no pain in the hip. I’ll take it."
Peacock is working his way back from offseason hip surgery. He'll take two days off and throw another bullpen Tuesday, when he hopes to increase his session to 35 pitches. If he continues to progrees, he hopes to throw his first live batting practice March 11.
Astros' Peacock (hip) reports no issues after running Thursday

|(2/26/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock reported no discomfort in his surgically repaired hip Thursday, while running a day after throwing his second bullpen session, per the Houston Chronicle. Peacock ran for 20 minutes at 80 percent of his body weight on an AlterG anti-gravity treadmill.
“I felt good,” he said. “I felt pretty good, no pain. I did 20 minutes of running on the AlterG, which takes away body weight, which is nice. I’m at 80 percent body weight.”
Peacock was happy with Thursday's progress since he didn't respond as well after running Monday.
“I felt a little bit of awkwardness in there (Monday), but that’s gone,” he said.
Astros' Brad Peacock down 28 pounds

|(2/20/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock reported to camp in great shape, according to MLB.com.
Peacock reportedly lost 28 pounds during the offseason. "I hit the gym pretty hard," he said. "I worked hard and [I'm] glad to see it paid off." Peacock, who had hip surgery last October, is slightly behind the other pitchers in camp, but is hoping to throw off a mound on Sunday.
The 27-year-old posted a 4.72 ERA over 131 2/3 innings last year.
Astros' Lunhow: Peacock (hip) will throw off mound 'pretty soon'

|(2/18/15) Astros general manager Jeff Lunhow said Wednesday pitcher Brad Peacock, who is coming off October hip surgery, will throw off a mound "pretty soon," per MLB.com. However, he will be a little behind the rest of the pitchers at the beginning of camp.
Astros not sure Brad Peacock will be ready for Opening Day
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said pitcher Brad Peacock will not be ready to throw off a mound at the start of spring training and his status for Opening Day is unclear, reports the Houston Chronicle.
Peakcock is coming off hip surgery in the offseason and could open the season on the disabled list. In 2014, he went 4-9 with a 4.72 ERA.
|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.
