RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

A consensus top-100 prospect before the 2012 season, Peacock battled injuries throughout a winding career through the Nationals system before landing in Houston. He yo-yoed back and forth between Houston and Triple-A Fresno the prior three years, and 2016 was no exception. He started 21 games for Fresno, and put up a 4.23 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. He looked good with a 9.2 K/9 and 3.0 BB/9, but he failed to replicate that performance once he got called up to the Astros in mid-August. After a few relief appearances, Peacock got five September starts, which went well until he got shelled for five earned runs in his final outing on Sept. 30. While his 3.69 major league ERA was decent, the signing of veteran Charlie Morton likely cements Peacock's role as a long reliever entering the season. He would need at least a couple injuries ahead of him to find his way to spot starts.

2016

A former top pitching prospect, Peacock has not been particularly effective at the big league level thus far in his career. Unfortunately, recent injuries - including an intercostal strain last April and surgery last August to remove bone spurs in his hip that were pinching a nerve near his spine - have prevented him from improving upon his career 4.69 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 50 big league appearances (41 starts). On the plus side, Peacock is still relatively young (he's entering his age-28 season) and the Astros are confident he'll be healthy for the start of 2016. It doesn't look like a rotation spot will be available, so a move to the bullpen may be in store for the right-hander.

2015

After a rough spring, Peacock opened 2014 in the Astros' bullpen, but the mid-April departure of Lucas Harrell cleared a spot for him in the starting rotation. Peacock struggled, however, going 4-9 with a 4.72 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, 4.8 BB/9 and 1.4 HR/9 in 28 appearances (24 starts) for Houston. He struck out batters at a decent clip (8.1 K/9) and did finish the season on a high note with a 2.33 September ERA, but high pitch counts often meant he failed to make it past the sixth inning. With plenty to improve upon, Peacock first has an injury setback to overcome, as he recently underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs from his right hip, which puts him in danger of missing spring training and possibly even the start of the regular season.

2014

Despite a poor showing at the Triple-A level in 2012, Peacock broke camp as the Astros' fourth starter last season. The 26-year-old struggled mightily out of the gate, posting a 9.41 ERA and 1.91 WHIP during the month of April before he was relegated to the bullpen, and subsequently demoted to Triple-A. Peacock turned things around over 13 starts for Oklahoma City before Houston gave him another shot in the rotation in August. The right-hander finished the season with much better results, including an 8.3 K/9 that far outweighed his ugly 5.18 ERA. While Peacock would benefit from cutting down on his walks (4.0 BB/9) and home runs (1.6 HR/9), plenty of upside remains as he contends for a 2014 rotation spot this spring.

2013

After being included as part of the return in the Gio Gonzalez trade, Peacock was expected to contend for a rotation spot in Oakland. Instead, he spent the entire season as a starter at Triple-A Sacramento, where poor control (4.4 BB/9) and inconsistent results enabled A.J. Griffin and Dan Straily to leapfrog him on the organizational depth chart. While free passes were an issue, Peacock continued to miss bats at an impressive clip (9.3 K/9). Further, he was victimized by a 60.8 percent strand rate and his 4.26 FIP is a better indication of his skill level than last season's 6.01 ERA. A move to the bullpen would increase his chances of contributing to the A's in 2013, but the potential for more long-term value exists if he remains a starter and tries to iron out the control issues at Sacramento again.

2012

Peacock’s stock rose in 2011 after posting a 1.87 FIP and 11.77 K/9IP in 98.2 innings for Double-A. He wasn’t as successful in Triple-A, but his ERA of 3.19 in 48 innings was impressive. He did not miss many bats in his 12 innings with the Nationals (4.5 percent swinging-strike rate), despite featuring a fastball that averaged 92.7 mph, a curveball (74.7 mph) and a decent change-up (82.5 mph). Long term, Peacock could end up as a late-inning reliever, but he should receive an opportunity to earn a spot in the A's rotation after being traded to Oakland as part of the Gio Gonzalez deal in December.

2011

Peacock blossomed in 2010, ripping through High-A with a K/9IP rate north of 10.0 and establishing himself as a very intriguing arm. The Nationals used him out of the bullpen in the Arizona Fall League, and his mid-90s fastball and nasty slider played very well in relief. But if his mediocre changeup catches up to his better offerings he may yet have a future in the rotation.
