Astros' Peacock goes back on DL, Wojciechowski recalled


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2015) 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."

He permitted three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings of a 4-0 defeat. Of his 85 pitches, 52 were strikes.

"It's never easy coming off a rehab," manager A.J. Hinch said, per the Houston Chronicle. "We surprised him with this assignment because we were surprised ourselves. Obviously we slotted Peacock to be in that slot where third, fourth, fifth, whenever we needed it."

Peacock will look to rebound Monday at Seattle. He went 0-2 with a 4.58 ERA in four starts last season against the Mariners.

"It's awesome," Peacock said. "To tell you the truth I didn't expect to be back this early. I worked hard this offseason. I'm glad to see it pay off."

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) The Astros announced that Brett Oberholtzer, Josh Fields and Brad Peacock will all start the season on the 15-day disabled list, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Oberholtzer  is dealing with a blister on his left index finger, and will have his DL stint backdated to March 31.

"It's a blister. It's not an arm injury," Oberholtzer said. "I just have to wait until the skin heals and take a little time and get back at it. ... I'm just day to day right how, obviously. I'll just wait until the skin heals up and gets right and allows me to make pitches comfortably and not deal with any side effects from the skin."

Fields is working his way back from a groin injury, and will have his DL stint backdated to March 27.

"I was trying to push it pretty hard, but I felt like I was going about it in a wise way," Fields said. "I made pretty quick progress. The fact that they've laid something out for me like that I think is going to help of 'OK, I can relax. I have a plan now of when I'm supposed to be back and just make sure everything is good and right.'"

Peacock, who is recovering from offseason hip surgery, will start the first game of the season at Triple-A Fresno, per MLB.com. His DL will be backdated to March 30.
