Astros summon Peacock to start Minnesota finale

Updated: August 4, 2013

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) – The Houston Astros recalled pitcher Brad
Peacock from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Sunday’s series finale against
the Minnesota Twins.

The 25-year-old Peacock began the season in the club’s rotation, but a rough
first month that included a 9.41 ERA led to a demotion on May 2. The righty
returned to the majors in late May, making three relief appearances before
sent back to Oklahoma City.

Peacock has excelled for the RedHawks since returning on June 8, going 5-0
with a 1.73 ERA in nine starts.

The Astros opened a roster spot by optioning outfielder Jimmy Paredes to
Oklahoma City.
