|Brad Peacock demoted to Triple-A|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/2/13) First came a demotion to the bullpen. Now, Astros pitcher Brad Peacock will be toiling in the minors.
The Astros announced Thursday Peacock was demoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City. Peacock is 1-3 with a 9.41 ERA in six outings (five starts).

(4/29/13) The Astros removed struggling Brad Peacock from the starting rotation Monday, MLB.com reports. The team has not tabbed a replacement starter for Thursday against Detroit.
Manager Bo Porter is moving Peacock to the bullpen after the pitcher's latest poor outing in which he gave up five runs on six hits and five walks over 3 1/3 innings in a loss at Boston. Peacock made five starts and is 1-3 with an ugly 8.44 ERA and 1.83 WHIP. He did have 19 strikeouts over 21 1/3 innings.
|Brad Peacock hit hard again |

(4/27/13) Astros starting pitcher Brad Peacock's struggles continued Saturday night against the Red Sox. Peacock allowed five runs on six hits over 3 1/3 innings in the 8-5 loss.
Most of the damage came in the second inning as the Red Sox scored four runs, including two on a double by David Ortiz.
The right-hander was pulled after throwing 90 pitches, 51 for strikes, and finished with five walks and three strikeouts while falling to 1-3 with a 8.44 ERA.
Peacock, who has allowed 12 earned runs over his last two starts (7 2/3 innings), next faces the Tigers at home Thursday. He is 0-2 with a 9.35 ERA in two career starts at Minute Maid Park.
|Glass is half empty for Brad Peacock|
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(4/24/13) Astros rookie Brad Peacock has yet to pitch more than five innings in a start, and his 7.50 ERA speaks to how ineffective he has been. Though there have been a few good signs in the early going, it's time for deep league owners to get concerned.
On the positive side, Peacock has 16 strikeouts in his 18 innings, though he has had to rely on a high called strikes rate to achieve that. He has also induced 10 popups already, so clearly he has caught some batters off balance.
However, he's getting whiffs at just a six percent rate, and only 58 percent of his pitches have been strikes. Peacock showed strong command when he was in Double-A, but we haven't seen it since. Because there are some positives, it's premature to ditch Peacock in deep leagues. If he doesn't start throwing strikes soon, though, it will be time to cut him loose in practically all formats.
|So much for Brad Peacock|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(4/23/13) With his improved control this spring, the Astros' Brad Peacock did his best to convince everyone his disappointing performance at Triple-A Sacramento last year was a fluke.
So much for that.
Inefficient would be the best way describe his first four starts. Only once has he lasted the minimum five innings needed for a victory, not that he deserves one, considering he's walked eight in 18 innings, and when he does find the strike zone, he's allowed six home runs. Plus, he's getting little run support.
Even if he stays in the majors, I see no reason to stick with him in Fantasy.
|At the end of the 2011 season, Brad Peacock looked like he was soon to become a staple in the Nationals' rotation, but much has changed since then. He has been traded twice, going to Oakland in the Gio Gonzalez trade and then to Houston as part of the Jed Lowrie deal. In between those two swaps, Peacock suffered through a miserable season at Triple-A Sacramento, where he did post a 12-9 record but with a 6.01 ERA. The 25-year-old has had few problems getting strikeouts over his last three minor league seasons, but in 2012 his command withered. The Astros will give Peacock an opportunity to show he can rebound this spring, and with a strong Grapefruit League performance he could earn the final spot in their rotation. Though he still presents considerable upside for Fantasy owners, Peacock's lack of an assured major league role and inconsistency make him an AL-only option at best. (Updated 2/5/13)|
