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.
Peacock (shoulder) could return from the 10-day injured list prior to Sunday's game against the Angels, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Peacock was cleared to throw live batting practice Thursday, and after bouncing back successfully, the team hopes the right-hander can be reinstated in time for the series finale. He's been sidelined since Aug. 28 due to right shoulder discomfort.

Peacock has been out with shoulder discomfort since late August. He threw bullpen sessions Friday and Monday and could be back with the big-league club soon if Thursday's session goes well.
Peacock (shoulder) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock threw all of his pitches during the session and noted being rusty with his offspeed stuff. The right-hander discovered "nerve issues" in his neck have caused much of the discomfort he's been dealing with over the second half of the season. "We got that under control and I feel 1,000 times better," Peacock said. "Hopefully I feel good tomorrow and we'll go from there." Manager AJ Hinch hinted that Peacock will need at least two more sessions before facing live hitters.
Peacock (shoulder) is tentatively scheduled to throw off a mound over the weekend, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock has been limited to playing catch since landing back on the injured list at the end of August with right shoulder discomfort, but the hope is that he'll be cleared to resume mound work this weekend, at which point a timetable for his return will hopefully come into focus.
Peacock (shoulder) is scheduled to play catch Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.
Peacock has been cleared to resume throwing for the first time since landing back on the injured list at the end of August with right shoulder discomfort. While this is a step in the right direction for the 31-year-old, he remains without a timetable for his return.
Peacock (shoulder) will not travel with the Astros during their upcoming road trip, which begins Friday and runs through Tuesday, Hunter Atkins of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock landed back on the injured list Wednesday after experiencing what he described as a sharp pain in his shoulder during his outing against the Rays on Tuesday. The right-hander underwent X-rays and an MRI on Wednesday, though manager AJ Hinch was vague about the results, stating "it's just his shoulder," per Atkins. The current plan is for Peacock to rest until the Astros return from their five-game road trip, at which point he'll be reevaluated.
Peacock was placed on the injured list Wednesday with right shoulder discomfort, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Peacock made just three appearances -- allowing one run while posting a 5:4 K:BB across 3.2 innings -- before aggravating his balky shoulder and landing back on the injured list. It's unclear how long this latest issue will keep the right-hander sidelined -- he underwent X-rays and an MRI and is awaiting the results, per Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. Cy Sneed was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.
Peacock (7-6) entered Tuesday's game early and picked up the win, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three over 1.2 scoreless innings against the Tigers.
Aaron Sanchez departed after just 2.1 innings with a sore pectoral muscle that eventually landed him on the injured list after the game. In need of innings from his bullpen, manager AJ Hinch started the process with Peacock, who made his first appearance since returning this weekend from a shoulder injury. Sanchez will miss at least one start, but Peacock, who has started 15 times in 2019, is not nearly stretched out enough to replace him and will continue to throw as a reliever.
The Astros activated Peacock (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
Though he'll take over the roster spot that had previously went to the starter for Saturday's game against the Athletics, Rogelio Armenteros, Peacock will work out of the bullpen as he rejoins the Astros. Houston is expected to have Gerrit Cole (hamstring) available to start again Thursday versus the Tigers, restoring the Astros' rotation to five members. That leaves no room for Peacock, who had already been preparing for a relief role while he went through his minor-league rehab assignment.
Peacock (shoulder) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
He has been out since June 27 and has given up five runs in 3.2 innings during his rehab assignment, although he has logged 2.1 scoreless innings over his last three appearances at Triple-A. Peacock will assume a mid-leverage bullpen role upon his activation.
