Red Sox Acquire Veteran Pitcher From Indians, Could Pitch as Soon as Tuesday

The Boston Red Sox announced a trade Monday before their four-game set against the Rays. They have acquired Brad Peacock from the Indians, in exchange for cash considerations.

Peacock, a 33-year-old major-league veteran who has a career 4.01 ERA and both a 4.22 FIP and xFIP, has spent nine seasons in the majors while accumulating 554.2 innings. 83 of his 181 appearances have been starts, but the right-hander has limited major-league experience since 2019, and has faltered this season in Triple-A.

In 2 2/3 innings (three outings) with the Houston Astros in 2020, the righty allowed two runs (7.71 ERA) on three hits. That’s his most recent major-league experience, while in 2019 he posted a 4.12 ERA and a 4.64 xFIP across 23 outings (15 starts).

The veteran has an ERA of 7.68 however through 11 outings (10 starts) with Triple-A this season, to go along with a 5.16 xFIP.

Ian Browne of MLB.com reports that he is with the team in St. Petersburg, for tonight’s game, but has yet to been activated. He could pitch as soon as tomorrow, with Tuesday being TBD for the starting pitcher.
