2013 - Mike Pelfrey 4-9 19 19 0 0 0 0 98.1 122 60 58 10 30 59 5.31 1.55

Pelfrey had been doing really well of late, until getting pounded a bit on Wednesday. For his 20th start of the season he has a good opportunity to get back on track with a team that, much like the Twins, is trying to figure out who the hell can help them out next season.


W-L G GS CG SHO SV BS IP H R ER HR BB K ERA WHIP
2013 - Brad Peacock 1-3 9 5 0 0 0 0 29.0 34 26 26 8 17 23 8.07 1.76

Peacock is back with the Astros after making five starts in April and then four bullpen appearances before getting optioned to Triple-A for being rubbish. Houston had claimed Wade LeBlanc off of waivers and needed the roster spot. In 2011, Peacock threw 12 innings for the Nationals.

Performing well at Triple-A, Peacock posted a 2.73 ERA in 13 starts and a relief appearance. He struck out 76 in 79 innings while walking 22 and giving up 65 hits. Prior to 2012, Baseball America considered him the game's #36 prospect while MLB.com had him listed at # 75. He didn't make either list this season after posting a 6.01 ERA in his first full stint at Triple-A in 2012.
