Peacock is working to incorporate a changeup to his pitch mix, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Peacock used a changeup previously -- albeit sparsely. He has almost exclusively used a sinker and a slider as a reliever in recent seasons. Now that the Astros are thinking of using him as a starter once again, the right-hander is working to incorporate other pitch offerings, including a changeup, in order to improve his chances of sticking as a starter. The changeup could also be a nice weapon in relief, if he ends up back in the bullpen.
