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.
Peacock was placed on the 10-day injured list with right shoulder soreness Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 32-year-old missed the first six weeks with right shoulder issues, and it appears he's aggravated that injury since returning in early September. Peacock wasn't given an official timeline for his return, and it's possible he may not pitch again this season.
Peacock (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock had been traveling the team during the current road trip, and he'll be available out of the bullpen for Saturday's doubleheader. He should have a fairly high-leverage role with the Astros following his recovery from a right shoulder injury.
Peacock (shoulder) could return during this current road trip that lasts through Sept. 13, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
He is traveling with the team, which suggests he is nearing activation. Once activated, Peacock should occupy a mid-to-high leverage role in the Astros' bullpen.
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%.
Peacock (shoulder) is making progress and has been throwing off flat ground, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Peacock has been dealing with a sore shoulder, a potentially worrisome injury given that he also dealt with shoulder troubles last season. While it's certainly a positive that he's making progress, his expected return date is not yet clear.
Peacock (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Peacock is working back from right shoulder soreness but won't be ready for the start of the regular season. It's unclear how long the issue will keep the righty sidelined, though it's worth noting that he also missed time in 2019 due to a balky shoulder. He'll join Houston's bullpen once healthy.
Peacock (shoulder) won't be ready for Opening Day, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock has been working through right shoulder soreness over the past week, and manager Dusty Baker revealed Sunday that the right-hander won't be ready for the start of the regular season. Peacock also dealt with a shoulder injury in 2019 that forced him to miss some time, but it's unclear how much time he'll miss as a result of his injury during the abbreviated 2020 season. Peacock is expected to claim a role in Houston's bullpen when he's healthy.
Peacock is dealing with a right shoulder injury, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Houston manager Dusty Baker previously indicated Peacock was ailing for an undisclosed reason, so the mystery is now known. Peacock dealt with a shoulder injury in the 2019 season and was limited to 23 appearances (15 starts). He also had a neck injury during training camp, so age may be catching up to the 32-year-old right-hander. Once healthy, Peacock is expected to pitch out of the bullpen in 2020.
Manager Dusty Baker said Tuesday that Peacock is "ailing" for an undisclosed reason, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Peacock is dealing with something, but Baker didn't provide any details regarding the nature or severity of the issue. It's unclear whether this will impact Peacock's availability for Opening Day, scheduled for July 24. The 32-year-old suffered a shoulder injury last season but made 23 appearances (15 starts) for the Astros, recording a 4.12 ERA and a 96:31 K:BB over 91.2 innings.
Peacock (neck) was on track for Opening Day after throwing a side session March 4, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
That side session and Rome's comments were made before MLB suspended action due to the coronavirus pandemic, so it's natural to assume Peacock will be ready to roll when the revised Opening Day happens. Peacock, who has experience as a starter and reliever, was being groomed for a bullpen role prior to the suspension of baseball activity.
Peacock (neck) indicated he felt good after he completed his first bullpen session of the spring Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock threw 15 fastballs during the workout and had no complications with his neck, so he'll likely get the green light to mix in some offspeed offerings when he gets back on the mound in a couple of days. Since Houston has already committed to using Peacock in a relief role, he'll still have a chance at avoiding the injured list and claiming a spot in the Astros' Opening Day bullpen.
Peacock (neck) is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of spring training Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Peacock experienced nerve issues in his neck shortly after reporting to camp, with the Houston coaching staff removing him from consideration for a spot in the rotation soon after. The fact that Peacock hasn't even faced hitters yet with Opening Day three weeks away would make a trip to the injured list a certainty if he was prepping for starting duty, but he still has an outside chance of clinching a spot on the 26-man active roster now that he'll have a shorter buildup period as a reliever.
Peacock (neck) is no longer in the race for the Astros' fifth starter position according to pitching coach Brent Strom, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 32-year-old has yet to throw off a mound during spring training and is viewed as a more valuable piece to Houston's bullpen. Over the course of his eight-year career, Peacock has held opposing hitters to a .214 batting average across 120.1 relief innings, compared to a .236 batting average across 432 innings as a starter. The right-hander hopes to return to action soon after nerve issues in his neck recently resurfaced prior to spring training. The Astros' No. 5 job remains an open competition between Josh James, Austin Pruitt and Framber Valdez.
Peacock is limited to begin spring training after the nerve issues in his neck recently resurfaced, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock has apparently progressed to throwing from 90 feet, but he remains behind schedule in his throwing program. The 32-year-old missed time in the second half of the 2019 season due to shoulder discomfort which stemmed from the nerve issues in his neck. The right-hander was expected to battle for the fifth spot in the starting rotation in spring training.
Peacock signed a one-year, $3.9 million contract with the Astros on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock will receive a raise after posting a 4.12 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with a 96:31 K:BB over 91.2 frames in 2019. The right-hander ended the year as a reliever after returning from a shoulder injury but figures to have the opportunity to start in 2020.
Peacock will open Game 6 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Saturday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Peacock started 15 games this season, though he's likely to be used as an opener on this occasion as the Astros are expected to use a large number of relievers. Peacock was left off the Astros' ALDS roster and has pitched just once in the ALCS, throwing a single scoreless inning.
Peacock is on the Astros' ALCS roster, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
The Astros held Peacock off their ALDS roster after determining that he wasn't fully ready for postseason play following a late-season shoulder injury that contributed to some struggles in his final three outings of the regular season. After throwing live batting practice during the ALDS, the right-hander has now recovered enough to rejoin the team's bullpen for the ALCS against the Yankees.
Peacock is not on the Astros' ALDS roster.
Peacock returned from a shoulder injury in late September, allowing three runs in three innings over the final eight days of the season. The Astros don't feel that he's fully up to speed, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports, so he'll throw live batting practice during the ALDS in hopes of making the ALCS roster, should the Astros reach that round.
Peacock (shoulder) was activated form the injured list Sunday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
"I feel way better than I did," Peacock told McTaggert. "I'm just ready to get back out there and help the team out." He also noted that he expects to pitch Sunday in a relief role. Peacock has been out since Aug. 28, so initially he may be in line for only single-inning appearances.
