Jake Peavy, one of the top pitchers in San Diego Padre history, might be returning to his old stomping grounds according to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Peavy won the 2007 Cy Young Award as a Padre and also captured two ERA titles during his time in San Diego. Obviously, he is not the pitcher he once was as shown by last year's 5-9 record and 5.54 ERA for the Giants.
Jake Peavy was demoted to the bullpen to make room for the recently acquired Matt Moore.
Peavy had shown signs of improvement before struggling mightily again over his last three outings. Over that span, he allowed 13 earned runs over 15 innings to increase his season ERA and WHIP to 5.47 and 1.40. He doesn't hold much, if any, value pitching out of the bullpen, though he could return as a spot start later in the season.
Jake Peavy gave up four runs, struck out six and walked one in six innings pitched.
All in all, it was not a bad start, but a three-run shot to Big Papi and a solo homer to Brock Holt did in Peavy. He still isn't a fantasy option, but isn't absolutely disastrous anymore if you're desperate in deep leagues. He's given up two or fewer runs in five of his last seven starts.
After his previous start ended before the completion of the fourth inning, Jake Peavy rebounded nicely on Monday to collect his fifth win of the season. He held the Rockies to one earned run on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings.
Peavy has been much better of late, as he now has quality starts in six of his last eight appearances. His ratios are still high on the season, but he's proven more useful, especially for DFS purposes considering his prices remain relatively low due to his slow start.
Jake Peavy has strung together two consecutive quality starts and earned his second win of the season on Tuesday against Atlanta. He gave up just one hit in seven innings and finished with three strikeouts on his 35th birthday.
Peavy is still a questionable start at this point in his career, but could be worth streaming if he's able to put together another quality start in his next outing. For now, though, it's okay to be skeptical.
