Peacock was thought of a #2/#3 type of starter when he was with Nationals. Struggled in AAA last season and just turned 25. I wouldnt write him off just yet.


Astros have done reasonably well lately in this rebuild. They moved on guys that weren't the future (Carlos Lee, Wandy) and traded guys with value (Pence) that netted them guys like Singleton, Cosart, Santana and drafted well (Springer, Correa, McCullers). Lot to like about them. IMO they are a top-10 farm system with #1 pick in few months time.


Carter will strike out alot. Dont expect him to hit for a high batting average but what he will do is bring that light tower power. He has obvious flaws but 30 HR guys dont grow on trees. Astros will give him plenty of playing time with 1B, DH and LF all options.
