Always in need of some more pitching help, the Boston Red Sox added another arm to the mix Monday with the acquisition of minor-league pitcher Brad Peacock from the Cleveland Indians.
The Red Sox sent cash considerations to the Indians in exchange for Peacock.
A 33-year-old righty, Peacock has spent the 2021 campaign with the Triple-A Columbus Clippers, where he’s compiled an 0-4 record and 7.68 ERA in 34 total innings over 11 games (10 starts). Injuries have been a problem for Peacock over the last two seasons, with shoulder woes limiting him to just 26 games since the start of the 2019 MLB season.
Most recently, at least at the MLB level, Peacock pitched 2.1 innings out of the bullpen in three games with the Astros in 2020, but surrendered three runs (two earned runs) while opponents hit .300 off of him.
A pitcher with both starter and bullpen experience, the Florida-born Peacock has appeared in 181 games in an MLB career split between Washington and Houston, with a 34-30 record and 4.01 ERA over 554.2 total innings of work.
