Astros reliever Brad Peacock has reportedly been placed on the 10-day Injured List once again due to shoulder discomfort. Cy Sneed has been called back up.

According to Jake Kaplan of The Athletic, barely a week after coming off of the Injured List Brad Peacock is going right back on it after feeling pain in his shoulder in last nights game. The Astros have called up Cy Sneed to take his place on the roster.

Peacock was placed on the Injured List back in Late June for the same discomfort in his right shoulder. After a setback in his rehab, Peacock finally rejoined the team and pitched his first game back on August 20th. He has appeared in two other games since, one on the 24th and then last night.

He has been fairly successful since his return, allowing just three hits and one run in 3.2 innings of work culminating in an ERA of 2.45. The lone run surrendered was a solo home run by Joey Wendle, the only run scored in last evenings 15-1 slaughter of the Tampa Bay Rays.

Peacock has been feeling a sharp pain in his shoulder in his three appearances since returning to the team, but last night it was more severe than previously. There has also been a small but noticeable decline in the velocity of his pitches.

He got an MRI and an X-ray today and is awaiting the results before any more decisions can be made. “Same stuff I’ve been going through pretty much the whole year,” Peacock said. “Went and got an MRI this morning. Haven’t heard anything yet.”

Cy Sneed has to feel like a yoyo lately with his travels back and forth between the Big Leagues and the Minors. This is the sixth time he has been called up since he initially came up back on June 27th. He has appeared in just four games and has given up six earned runs on 15 hits in 12.2 innings.
