Brad Peacock: Heads to free agency
The Royals released Peacock from his minor-league contract Sunday.
Peacock was one three players cut loose from the Triple-A Omaha roster as the affiliate prepares to welcome back a number of players coming out of the All-Star break after the big club needed reinforcements from the minor-league ranks last weekend when 10 players were placed on the restricted list for the Royals' series in Toronto. Over his 38.1 innings out of the Omaha bullpen this season, Peacock turned in a 1.88 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 45:16 K:BB. He shouldn't have much trouble landing a minor-league deal with another organization.... See More ... See Less
Royals' Brad Peacock: Lands with KC on minor-league deal
Peacock signed a minor-league contract with the Royals on Monday.
The 34-year-old enjoyed a productive three-year run as a swingman with the Astros from 2017 through 2019 -- he went 23-13 with a 3.46 ERA and 29.4 K% over 288.2 innings -- but recurring shoulder problems have derailed his career ever since. He's made only five appearances at the big-league level over the past two seasons, and at this stage in his career, the Royals may view him exclusively as a reliever. Peacock's deal likely includes an invitation to big-league spring training, but he'll still presumably be on the outside looking in for a spot on the Royals' Opening Day roster.... See More ...

Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Sent to Triple-A
Peacock was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Peacock was promoted to the big leagues Sunday prior to the series finale against the White Sox, but he failed to take the mound and will not head back to the minors.

Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Back with BoSox
The Red Sox recalled Peacock from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.
The righty rejoins the Red Sox a day after being optioned, as Phillips Valdez tested positive for COVID-19 and left an open spot in the bullpen. Peacock will likely pitch in nothing but the lowest-leverage situations for as long as he sticks with the big-league roster.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Optioned to Triple-A
Peacock was optioned to Triple-A Worcester on Saturday.
This makes room for Saturday's starter, Connor Seabold, on the active roster. Peacock has given up nine earned runs in 5.1 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Works in long relief
Peacock tossed three innings in relief during Tuesday's 12-7 loss to the Rays, giving up four runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three.
After making a spot start Sept. 1 against the Rays in his Red Sox debut, Peacock shifted to the bullpen with Boston bringing its rotation back to five men to begin the week. With Eduardo Rodriguez failing to escape the fourth inning in his start, Peacock and Michael Feliz were needed to provide length Tuesday. It's unclear if Peacock will continue to work in relief the rest of the week, as the team will have a need for a fifth starter Sept. 14 in Seattle after Nick Pivetta was forced to the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday following his positive test....

Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Allows five runs in short outing
Peacock (0-1) allowed five runs on two hits and two walks over 2.1 innings, taking the loss in a defeat at the hands of the Rays on Tuesday.
Peacock was making his first start in the majors since June of 2019 and it did not go well for him. He had a quick 1-2-3 inning on just seven pitches to open up the game but then served up a solo home run to Randy Arozarena in the second. Things really went south for him in the third after he allowed four of the first five batters he faced to reach and two to score before he was pulled from the game. Peacock would end up being charged for two additional runs before his night was all said and done. Tuesday's start will likely be the only one of the season for the 33-year-old, as he figures to be sent back down to Triple-A Worchester ahead of Wednesday's game.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Traded to Red Sox
Peacock was traded from Cleveland to Boston on Monday in exchange for cash considerations.
Peacock spent the first few months of the season recovering after he underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday, but he landed a minor-league deal with Cleveland in late June. He recorded a 7.68 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 34 innings across 11 appearances (10 starts) at Triple-A Columbus and should now report to Triple-A Worcester.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Brad Peacock: Starting against Rays
Peacock will be called up to start Tuesday's game against the Rays, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The Red Sox wanted to give Chris Sale an extra day of rest as he works his way back into rhythm following Tommy John surgery. They'll turn to the veteran righty Peacock, who's yet to pitch at the big-league level this season and was only just acquired in a trade with Cleveland on Monday. He'll be on short rest, having thrown 5.1 innings for Cleveland's Triple-A affiliate Friday, so he likely won't be asked to pitch deep into Tuesday's contest.... See More ... See Less
Indians' Brad Peacock: Lands minor-league deal
Peacock signed a minor-league contract with Cleveland on Friday, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Peacock had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder in October, but he held a showcase for multiple teams in early June. He made three relief appearances for Houston in 2020 and will now report to Triple-A Columbus.... See More ... See Less
Brad Peacock: Showcase on tap
Peacock (shoulder) will put on a showcase for multiple teams Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Astros' Brad Peacock: Undergoes surgery
Peacock underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock missed most of the 2020 season with a shoulder injury, and he'll officially be sidelined for the remainder of the postseason. The right-hander made just three appearances this season, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out three over 2.1 innings. Barring any setbacks, Peacock could certainly be ready for spring training in 2021 as he prepares to hit free agency during the offseason.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Brad Peacock: Lands on injured list
Peacock was placed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder soreness Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Peacock (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Astros' Brad Peacock: Graduates to mound work
Peacock (shoulder) has resumed throwing bullpen sessions at the Astros' alternate training site in Corpus Christi, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock has been sidelined for nearly a month with the right shoulder injury. The Astros had been planning for a healthy Peacock to fill a key multi-inning role out of the bullpen, and his eventual return will loom larger than Houston anticipated with the team's relief corps having been ravaged by injuries early on this season. Over his 95 career relief appearances, Peacock owns a 3.81 ERA and 19.6 K-BB%.... See More ... See Less
