The Twins have signed Brad Peacock to a minor league deal. He was assigned to Triple-A Saint Paul.
Peacock last pitched for the Red Sox in 2021 and struggled, having a 15.19 ERA in 2 appearances. The Twins bullpen could use some depth and Peacock has been efficient in the past, so it's possible he could provide some value. Still, he will have to prove himself over an extended period of time to be considered in any format.
Peacock signed a Minor League deal with the Royals according to MLB's transaction log and reported by MLB Trade Rumors.
Peacock had shoulder surgery in 2020, which limited him to just 2.1 innings pitched, and he returned with the Red Sox in 2021, pitching just 5.1 innings. He spent time between the rotation and bullpen in Houston but was between 2016 through 2019 as he posted a 3.48 ERA in 320 innings. Peacock has proven to be a dominant arm in the past, so it is an interesting flier for the Royals to take. Monitor how Peacock looks when Spring Training begins.
Brad Peacock underwent right shoulder surgery on Tuesday.
Shoulder injuries are always tricky but the hope is that Peacock will be ready to pitch at the start of the 2021 campaign. The 32-year-old will be a free agent this winter.
The Astros placed RHP Brad Peacock on the 10-day injured list with shoulder soreness.
Peacock missed the beginning of the season due to shoulder problems, returned for three appearances, and now he's on the IL again. It certainly hurts Houston's pitching depth.
