Fantasy Impact: 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.

Fantasy Impact: 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 done in by home runs

Tue, Jul 19th 11:04pm EDT
By Jeff Krisko

Jake Peavy gave up four runs, struck out six and walked one in six innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Jake Peavy rebounds in win

Tue, Jul 5th 6:46am EDT
By Blaine Blontz

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Jake Peavy mauled by Cubs

Sat, May 21st 1:36pm EDT
By Jeff Krisko

Jake Peavy didn't make it out of the second inning, yielding five earned runs. Three were off the bat of Kris Bryant. He gave up five hits and two walks, meaning he allowed more base runners than outs.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy is completely toast at this point, and the feel-goods about his prior start are gone. A mystery DL stint is coming and Chris Heston will likely be called up from Triple-A to take his place. Heston flashed some talent last season, and is worth a shot in deeper leagues.

Jake Peavy had another poor start on Wednesday against the Reds, allowing seven runs over six innings. He now has a 9.00 ERA and a 1.90 WHIP on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Bruce Bochy had said that he is not thinking of replacing Peavy in the rotation, but this is getting a little out of hand. Peavy still has a good strikeout rate, but unless you're in a strikeouts only league, there's no way the strikeouts are enough for you to start him in any format.

Jake Peavy chased early again

Sat, Apr 30th 12:24am EDT
By Jeff Krisko

Jake Peavy was torched for six earned runs in two innings pitched. He walked five batters and struck out three.

Fantasy Impact: This marks the fourth time in five games this season that Peavy didn't make it past five innings pitched while yielding four earned runs or more. Getting torched in only two innings is a new low. If someone in your league owns Peavy, it's time to stage an intervention. If you want to speculate, expect a phantom injury for a DL stint to make room for Chris Heston, who has been stretching out in Triple-A.

Jake Peavy obliterated in Coors

Thu, Apr 14th 12:02am EDT
By Jeff Krisko

Jake Peavy gave up eleven hits and a walk en route to six earned runs in four innings pitchedd.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy was ineffective for the second straight game this season, but it's hard to find an effective pitcher in Coors. If you played Peavy, you were tempting fate. He's only good at home and is getting up there in age. Chris Heston pitched two innings and may take his place in the rotation if Peavy continues to be ineffective. He's allowed ten earned runs in nine innings so far this season, so Heston will likely get his shot.

The Dodgers managed ten hits and four earned runs off of Peavy in five innings pitched. Peavy struck out three Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy was effective at home last season, where he posted a 3.03 ERA, but not today. He ran up against a Dodgers buzzsaw that scored 28 runs in their first three games of the season. This start hasn't much changed anything for Peavy's outlook, since you only would use him as a streaming option at home in even the deepest of leagues.

Peavy will take the mound on Thursday against the visiting Dodgers in what should be an amped up home opener against their rivals from Southern California.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy is no stranger to pitching an opening day and has had lots of success doing so. He is also generally much stronger early in the season and could be a decent streaming option at the pitcher-friendly confines of AT&T Park.

Jake Peavy yielded six earned runs on nine hits in 1.2 innings pitched. He struck out two and walked none.

Fantasy Impact: Chris Carter took him deep in the first and a couple of doubles did more damage to Peavy. He was an NL-only option given he's getting up there in age and has trouble staying healthy. He provides little upside in any league.

San Francisco Giants right-hander Jake Peavy earned the win on Friday in a 9-1 blowout over the San Diego Padres. He made it through seven innings only allowing one run on two hits. Peavy did not walk a batter and recorded two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy has been much better at home than on the road this season. This was his second win in a row in September and he improved his home record to 4-2 with a 3.46 ERA. Peavy is set to make his next start at home on Wednesday against the Cincinnati Reds. Fantasy owners should consider Peavy for a spot start on Wednesday if he is available on the waiver wire.

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy is set to take the mount Monday night on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Peavy is coming off a recent win over the Chicago Cubs last Wednesday where he gave up two runs over 6 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Impact: This is a great matchup for Jake Peavy. In 27 career starts against the LA Dodgers, Peavy is 14-3 with a 2.30 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. Those types of numbers make a good case for Peavy to be in your starting lineup tonight.

Jake Peavy lost his first start since July 8tl on Sunday when the Chicago Cubs held off the Giants 2-0. Despite a decent performance, he was pulled after five innings because of a 101-pitch count. Peavy struck out six and gave up two runs on four hits.

Fantasy Impact: In five starts since the All-Star break, Jake Peavy has improved his ERA from 4.71 to 3.75. He is 2-1 in those starts and owns a 23:4 strikeout-walk ratio. Peavy did not receive the run support he needed on Sunday to get the win, but continued to post reasonable statistics across the stat line.

Jake Peavy has another pitching gem added to his resume. He pitched six innings and allowed five hits, one walk, one earned run and struck out eight. He is in line for the victory.

Fantasy Impact: Jake Peavy has been absolutely strong for the San Francisco Giants since coming off the DL. He did not allow a run against his last opponent the Milwaukee Brewers. He has only allowed 10 runs in 37.2 innings since returning for a 2.42 ERA. He has also won his last three games and has struck out 26 in those 37.2 innings

Jake Peavy will face off against the Atlanta Braves today at 7:30 pm EST. He will try to get the Giants off their two-game losing streak. (2-4, 4.12) takes the hill at Turner Field for the first time since April 2006 looking to build on his best outing of the season. Peavy allowed just four hits and didnt walk a batter in six innings of work against the Milwaukee Brewers in a 5-0 win,

Fantasy Impact: The righty has a 2.84 ERA in five starts since coming off the disabled list. His season ERA is not a reflection of what he has brought to the mound as he has obviously been dominating. If he is available he should be picked-up by you.

Jake Peavy had another studly day on the mound today, yet the San Francisco Giants couldn't get him the help he needed to pull off the victory, Peavy tossed six scoreless innings while giving up just four hits. His command was crisp, as he struck out three batters but did not allow any walks.

Fantasy Impact: Peavy now has a 4.12 ERA with 25 strikeouts and 10 walks in 39 1/3 innings this season. Coming off the DL has put him in the right direction. His record is misleading as he lost two-games when the Giants were not hitting and is 2-2 in July. He has allowed only 10 earned runs in 31.2 innings in July.

Jake Peavy gets no help

Wed, Jul 8th 5:48pm EDT
By Michael Valverde

Jake Peavy has pitched two games since being recalled from Sacramento. The results have been unpleasant. Peavy has done his part, as he has now pitched 13.1 innings and has given up three earned runs but got credited in game one as a loss, and after leaving today's game, it appears as though he may get the credit for another loss.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants are just not hitting, but Jake Peavy is doing what he needs to do and has looked good doing it. He should be on your radar, or on the team, as he could continue to give good value, especially in San Francisco.

Jake Peavy will get the nod today in the rubber match against the New York Mets. This will be his second start after rehabbing from his injury in Sacramento. His first game back he pitched quite well, only allowing two runs in 6.1 innings, he will try to build from that momentum.

Fantasy Impact: Jake Peavy did not have a clean start to this season, as he was dealing with injury problems, therefore, being 0-3 this year with a 6.43 ERA is a little misleading. As with most Giant pitcher's he is a good streamer option at home, especially against a team such as the Mets who struggle to make contact.

Jake Peavy will be joining the San Francisco Giants. He will also be starting tonight against the Washington Nationals. The Giants have had a variety of injuries this year, especially with the elder pitching staff. Tim Lincecum, Tim Hudson, Matt Cain, have all partaken on the DL list.

Fantasy Impact: I am unsure where Jake Peavy will start in the rotation, but as it looks now, Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Chris Heston, Ryan Vogelsong, and Peavy are all in the five-man rotation. Peavy should be not used in anything other than a streaming situation or in very deep leagues.

Jake Peavy gets bounced early

Sat, Apr 18th 12:16am EDT
By Jeff Krisko

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.

Category: , Game Recaps

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.

San Francisco Giants pitcher Jake Peavy is still hopeful to start on the mound for Sunday's game against the San Diego Padres. Peavy has been dealing with soreness in his back and his status for Sunday is still unsure. (Source: Amy Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area on Twitter)

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.

Giants GM Bobby Evans stated that Peavy may miss his first start as they "iron some things out on the side." (Source: NBCSports.com)

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.
