Profile: After spending most of 2015 and 2016 in the minors, Brad Peacock was called up to join the Astros in August, beginning as a reliever but moving to the rotation down the stretch. Despite ending the season with a forgettable 7-run, 4.2-inning start, Peacock finished the year with a solid-looking 3.69 ERA. "Looking" is the key word, though, as Peacock's peripherals suggest his ERA should have been closer to 5 (5.17 FIP, 4.55 SIERA), with his 11% walk rate sticking out as a particularly sore spot. Peacock's fastball is solid, and his secondary pitches showed some improvement last year, but it's doubtful that he starts 2017 in the Astros rotation and his fantasy upside is iffy even as a reliever.

The Quick Opinion: Peacock pitched himself back into relevance late last year, but it doesn't look likely that he'll have a prominent role on the Astros' pitching squad in 2017.
