I like having this guy on my roster because of his SP eligibility but the Astros just aren't using him. Will his innings increase or is he just wasting a roster spot? My league counts holds.

 

I dropped him in a similar league with 10 teams because he isn't getting the innings I expected him to this year.

I haven't been following Peacock too closely -- he's a set and forget guy for me (for now) -- but maybe the usage is because the Astros starting pitching is too good?

 

I mean if Cole, Verlander and I suppose to a lesser degree Morton McCullers, Keuchel can often get into the 7th inning that doesn't leave much opportunity for a guy like Peacock....

Nice ratios, but he's only pitched 17 innings this year. The SP/RP eligibility is nice, but with McHugh also in the bullpen, I'm not sure if he's worth holding.

I own him but I will def be holding. Houston have got a ton of innings out of their starters in the early going. Cole and Verlander, the 2 AL pitchers probably fighting for the CY Young currently, are both top 5 in IP averaging just under 7 per start. Kuechel is right behind them in the top 10 and McCullers is in the top 25. Morton rounds out the group in 48th BUT he has 1 less start than the majority of pitchers ahead of him in IP. Basically Houston is getting 6+ IP out of all of their starters so far this season. I know it's the best rotation in baseball hands down, but they may need to start limiting some of those innings and I expect verlander/cole/morton to all come back to earth a little (those ERAs are insane). Peacock should see more work as the season goes along and they know he is capable of multiple innings and pitching in high leverage situations.

I added McHugh as well just to be safe.

17 innings is in line with a lot of other relievers. It's slightly behind but only by 1-2 innings. That can be made up in a hurry.

What are the Astros doing with him?!? He's been lights out but they're only using him when there's like a 8 run differential. He could be so valuable as an SP/RP with Holds but I'm about to drop him for someone who actually gets chances.

Stros are using him as they feel they need to.  Pretty hard to argue with the depth and talent they have both in the rotation and in the pen not to mention the fact that they are playing lights out.  Sucks for 'fantasy' baseball, and I too wish he could have been an SP or valuable holds guy, but they are using him as they need him.  If a starter does go down, it's likely him or McHugh that fill the spot.  Until then, I don't see his role changing.
