DateQuestionAnswer
2015-02-04 19:00:00 (link to chat)The Nationals have traded a number of pitching prospects the last several years, and some have been regifted (I mean traded again since). I assume Alex Meyer would be number 1, but how would you rank the others of Robbie Ray, Nathan Karns, Brad Peacock, Ian Krol and Tommy Milone? It seems for the most part that the Nats haven't suffered too badly yet.
(HalfStreet from Fairfax VA)
They've certainly chosen the right guys to give away, huh? Meyer is clearly in a tier above anyone else right now. Would probably go Ray, Karns, Peacock, Milone, Krol, but it's not pretty. (Jordan Gorosh)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can we expect out of Brad Peacock this year?
(Bob from Alabama)
Peacock is going to be in the bullpen, where he belongs. He should improve, but I'm not sure if he's more than a middle reliever. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a fit of off-season boredom, I traded Marcell Ozuna for Brad Peacock. Now, I'm trying to remember why I did it. Help me out here, I don't want to sound like an idiot when the rest of the league comes back.
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
That's a sharp deal. Look at Peacock from August on when he added a slider. He was very good. Small sample, but there was a discernible change. (Paul Sporer)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to think Brad Peacock can break out in 2014?
(Frank from Houston)
I don't think you're crazy but I do think mental health counseling is an option for everyone. Perhaps especially you. (Craig Goldstein)
2014-01-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)I must have been bored out of my mind, because I just realized I traded Marcell Ozuna for Brad Peacock. Is there any way to spin this so I don't get laughed out of my league?
(RotoLando from Cloud City)
Sure. There's a good chance Ozuna doesn't see playing time in the near future thanks to Yelich/Marisnick/Stanton (Craig Goldstein)
2013-09-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)Brad Peacock has been much better since his recall, as a starter, but his stuff just gives off a closer vibe to me. Where should he end up?
(Alex from Houston)
I think he's got a chance to stick as a back-end starter with good stuff thanks to that slider. The knucke-curve he's got can miss bats, but I think it works better as a second breaking ball. That hard slider he's shown more of recently really plays better off his fastball and gives him a slightly easier-to-command breaker on top of that. For me, that's been one of the primary keys to his recent success. (Jason Cole)
2013-02-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Between Alex White and Brad Peacock, whom the Astros acquired this off-season, which do you like more to figure out their problems and become a solid mid-rotation starter?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
I have to admit to now knowing much about White, but I do like what I've seen and heard about Peacock. Looking at our projections for '13, we give White a slight edge, but beyond that, your guess is as good as mine. Flip a coin, I guess? :/ (Ian Miller)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do you think of the haul (Chris Carter, Brad Peacock, and Max Stassi) the Astros got for Jed Lowrie?
(Dave from Houston)
Impressed with the return. I've been impressed with the 'Stros ability to acquire talent. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)It recently came out that Houston and Oakland were discussing a possible Jed Lowrie trade that would have sent Chris Carter and a pitcher to Houston. Should we be glad that it fell through? I have to believe that Lowrie would command more than that at the deadline if he's healthy for the first four months of the season.
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
It's hard to judge what a deal would have meant for each team without knowing all of the pieces involved, but a healthy Lowrie — given the dearth of productive hitters who can play a passable shortstop — could be an excellent trade chip.

A related question, from webberoo11, asked who the "young pitcher" from Oakland might have been. One of the "On the Outside Looking In" starting pitchers (http://www.mlbdepthcharts.com/2012/10/oakland-athletics-2012-13-offseason.html#.UQgmLInjkjE) might have made sense. Purely speculating, I'll say either Brad Peacock or Sonny Gray. (Daniel Rathman)
2012-04-12 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Derek, thanks for the chat. Many people know I am better performer in the second half of season career-wise. Would you mind name more players you consider worth monitoring or even prospects who could have a big showing?
(Adam Laroche from National Capital)
Sorry, Adam, but I don’t buy the whole first-half/second-half thing for most players. As far as prospects that could be recalled and make an impact go, there are a lot of guys that could fit the bill. To name a few: Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Trevor Bauer, Joe Benson, Joe Wieland, Robbie Erlin, Leonys Martin, Tyler Skaggs, Jacob Turner, Brad Peacock, Jarrod Parker, Nolan Arenado, Danny Hultzen, and Brett Jackson. (Derek Carty)

(LoyalRoyal from Kansas)
Yikes. Off the top of my head, in alphabetical order: Trevor Bauer, Jarrod Parker, James Paxton, Brad Peacock, Drew Pomeranz. And I'll assume I've missed someone obvious. (Geoff Young)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Rapid Fire: Ten fantasy rookies who will make impacts in 2012 (5 pitchers, 5 batters): _______? Go!
(Francois from Toronto)
Okay, rapid fire…
P: Yu Darvish, Matt Moore, Addison Reed, Julio Teheran, Brad Peacock
H: Jesus Montero, Yoennis Cespedes, Mike Trout, Devin Mesoraco, Tyler Pastornicky
There are certainly others that will have impacts too. I actually have an article about fantasy-worthy rookies in the Fantasy Baseball Index magazine that will hit newsstands this preseason, if you’re interested in my take on other guys. (Derek Carty)
2012-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat as I'm ready to get amped up for the 2012 season. Rotation Q's for a deeper league: Do Tyson Ross and Kris Medlen have chances of carving out rolls with those rotations currently influx?
(Bringon2012 from Kansas)
Absolutely not to Medlen. He’s good, but he’ll need to prove he’s recovered from TJ, and the Braves just have soooooo many options merely vying for the fifth spot (Minor, Teheran, Delgado, Vizcaino, etc.), most of which are now younger and more talented than Medlen. Medlen's probably 10th on their SP depth chart. Not a bad problem to have for a team, but for a Medlen owner it is. Ross has a slightly higher a chance, but the A’s also brought in quite the haul of starter candidates this winter between Jarrod Parker, Brad Peacock, and Tom Milone, plus mainstays (while healthy) of Brett Anderson, Dallas Braden, Brandon McCarthy, and (to a lesser extent) Guillermo Moscoso. Then you have the usual Ross-esque fill-ins like Graham Godfrey and Josh Outman, so it’ll be tough. (Derek Carty)
