Brad Peacockâ€™s new repertoire has made him one of the best pitchers in baseball at the ripe old age of 29.
Last month, the Houston Astros missed out on an attempt to bolster their pitching staff at the July trade deadline. They were supposedly in on Jose Quintana, Sonny Gray, Yu Darvish, and Zach Britton but whiffed on all four of them. Some â€” even the Astrosâ€™ own Dallas Keuchel â€” would say that the teamâ€™s front office didn't do enough to shore up their pitching staff.
Others would argue their staff didn't need reinforcements, and that argument starts with the breakout season of Brad Peacock. (více...)
Peacock fans eight in loss
(21. 8. 2017, 00:49:06, mlb.com)
Astros right-hander Brad Peacock lost on Sunday after he allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and a couple of walks with eight strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings vs. the A's.
Spin: Peacock has emerged as a huge source of strikeouts this season (11.85 K/9 rate), though he has struggled to work deep into games. As a starter, Peacock has totaled 77 2/3 frames in 15 appearances -- good for an average of 5 1/3 innings that exactly matches Sunday's output. That penchant for short outings and his 4.3 BB/9 rate limit Peacock's value, though he's still worth deploying for any fantasy owner in need of piling up some strikeouts. That he has the support of a high-scoring Astros offense only adds to Peacock's appeal. His next start will come on Aug. 26 in Anaheim. (více...)

FantasyDraft: B-Rad is Rad

Donâ€™t look now, but we have 1 month and 10 days left of regular season baseball. What a scary thought! Iâ€™m sorry for ruining your Sunday brunch. Iâ€™ll turn your attention to my prized possession today, Brad Peacock. I think he has the best matchup today against the Athletics at home. Heâ€™s faced the Aâ€™s twice already this year posting a 2.19 ERA with 18 kâ€™s in 12 innings. Itâ€™s looking to be another high strikeout day for Lord Peacock. He has struggled in his last 3 starts which Iâ€™m hoping might lead to lower ownership. I think what makes Peacock a great play today is his price at $17,700. He really allows you to pay up for some bats today.New to FantasyDraft ? Scared of feeling like a small fish in a big pond?
