Jake Peavy gets bounced early

Jake Peavy lasted only 3.2 innings, yielding 4 ER, striking out two and walking one.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy struggled in PetCo in his season debut, and struggled again in AT&T Park. Peavy had two of the friendliest fields to play in for his first two games of the season and walked away with a 9+ ERA for his efforts. He is likely not over his back issues and can be outright dropped in anything but the deepest of leagues.

In his first game back since leaving the Padres, Jake Peavy yielded four runs in as many innings, striking out five and walking three.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy was doing cruising through three until it all collapsed in the fourth inning. He's merely a streaming option in anything but the deepest of leagues. It was his first start after being out with a back injury, so he may just be knocking off the rust.


Jake Peavy's first start was skipped due to a back issue, but he is slated to be the Giants' starter Sunday at San Diego.

Fantasy Impact: The 33-year-old hurler enjoyed his best years as a Padre, and this is the first time he pitches in PetCo wearing any other uniform. He's coming off a back issue that flared up, but Peavy is fiery enough to pitch well just to make a point. He's worth playing if you feel like gambling.

Fantasy Impact: The decision to place Peavy on the DL could be decided today, depending on how his back is doing. If this does happen, Peavy has no fantasy value until healthy again. Peavy has a career ERA of 3.54.

Fantasy Impact: This isn't the start Peavy was hoping for, and any back issues for a veteran pitcher are concerning. But at this point the team is hopeful he'll return for the weekend, likely Sunday according to Baggarly. Certainly monitor the situation, but hopefully Peavy is able to return without further issue.

Fantasy Impact: Ryan Vogelsong would slide into his place. Peavy was brilliant once he hit San Francisco last season, but gave up 20 earned runs in just over 18 innings pitched in Spring Training. It's unclear if he's dealing with a significant injury or if they're merely tweaking a mechanical issue. Weekly league players who were banking on his two-start week can't be happy.

Fantasy Impact: This will take Peavy through his age 35 season, and may be his last contract as a pro. Peavy played well with his time in San Francisco last season, posting a 2.17 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and a moderate 6.6 K/9. After his struggles in the American League with the White Sox and the Red Sox, Peavy is likely happy to return to the friendly confines of the pitcher-friendly parks of the NL West.
