Astros' Brad Peacock throws bullpen session
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(9:21 pm ET) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock continued his recovery from an intercostal strain that landed him on the disabled list.
Peacock threw a bullpen session on Friday, for the first time since going on the DL on May 13, per the Houston Chronicle.
He threw four changeups and 21 fastballs.
"No curveballs yet, but I felt real good for the first time in a while," he said. "I’ll keep building up from there. I’ll take two days off and then throw another one with probably some curveballs. It feels fine. It’s fun."
Astros' Brad Peacock will throw bullpen on May 29
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock is throwing off of flat ground and has worked his way up to a distance of 110 feet.
Peacock has been on the disabled list for a month with a strained intercostal muscle.
When the team returns from its next road trip, on May 29, Peacock will get to return to the mound to throw a bullpen session.
"I think I get off the mound when we get back from the road trip," he said, per the Houston Chronicle. "That Friday I throw a bullpen."
In the meantime, he's waiting anything but patiently. "It’s terrible," he said. "I kind of worked hard to get back from the hip surgery. Then that happened. It stinks, but it happens sometimes. Just got to work through it."

|(5/12/15) Astros right-hander Brad Peacock threw from flat ground on Tuesday. He made 20 throws from 60 feet and 20 from 90 feet as he continues to recover from a left intercoastal strain. Peacock said he felt good and has been throwing daily over the past three days.
Peacock made just one start this season before getting injured. He went five innings while allowing three earned runs on five hits in a loss to the A's on April 14. There has been no updates on a timetable for his return. He has been on the disabled list since April 17.
Astros P Brad Peacock has PRP injection in side

|(4/30/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock underwent a platelet-rich plasma injection to his side, according to the Houston Chronicle.
It's the first time Peacock has ever had the shot.
"When I rotate it hurts a little bit," Peacock said.
Peacock was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 17 with what was diagnosed as a left intercostal strain. He's only made one start this season.
Astros' Peacock goes back on DL, Wojciechowski recalled
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Astros pitcher Brad Peacock was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday due to a left intercostal strain, the team announced. To take his roster spot, starting pitcher Asher Wojciechowski was recalled from Triple-A Fresno.
Peacock, who began the season on the disabled list coming off hip surgery, made just one start before going back on the DL. He took the loss in a start Tuesday against Oakland.
"Brad told us about some soreness after his outing," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said, per MLB.com. "So we gave it a day to calm down and get an assessment on what exactly was going on. It looked like it was really going to impact his start on Monday. So a quick trip to Triple-A for Wojo."
Wojciechowski did not make a start for Fresno following his demotion earlier this week when Peacock came off the DL. He is 0-1 with a 4.50 EA in two appearances (one start) for Houston this season.
"Having [Wojciechowski] back is good for us," Hinch said. "We never really felt like we wanted to send him down. But he was a victim of circumstances and now he's back in the rotation."
|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.
