Houston Astros SP Brad Peacock will receive the start against the Oakland Athletics Sunday, April 20.
Fantasy Tip: Peacock's outing Sunday will probably determine if he'll receive another shot in the rotation. He's attractive for AL-only leaguers with perhaps the most upside of the team's current options to replace Lucas Harrell.

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said SPs Jerome Williams or Brad Peacock would likely take the open spot in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Neither player is worth owning in standard mixed leagues. Peacock is much more intriguing as a starter and would be the better target in AL-only leagues if you're in need of pitching.

The Houston Astros optioned SP Brad Peacock and RP Rhiner Cruz to Triple-A Oklahoma City Thursday, May 2.
Fantasy Tip: Don't give up on Peacock just yet. The Astros have said that they are open to letting him reclaim a rotation spot eventually. Now he'll have to prove that he's worthy of being recalled by performing well down on the farm. Don't lose sight of him in AL-only leagues.

Houston Astros SP Brad Peacock is being moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen. Peacock was 1-3 on the year with an 8.44 ERA after giving up five runs and six hits in 3 1/3 innings to the Boston Red Sox over the weekend. He has gone 4 1/3 frames or less in each of his four starts this year. Manager Bo Porter is hoping that Peacock gains some confidence so he can return to the rotation at some point this season. Ps Paul Clemens, Travis Blackley and Jose Cisnero are all options to replace Peacock in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: The organization has trust that Peacock can return to a starting role, so it might not be wise to give up on him just yet in deep AL-only leagues. Clemens, Blackley and Cisnero should only be picked up for desperate owners in single-universe formats.
