HOUSTON (CBS Houston): Astros manager Bo Porter made his decision on who will replace Lucas Harrell in the starting rotation.

Brad Peacock will get the nod, and he will start Sunday against the A’s in Oakland.

Harrell (0-3, 9.49) was designated for assignment following Tuesday’s loss to the Royals at Minute Maid Park, when he gave up 4 runs on 5 hits in 5 innings.  Harrell needed 101 pitches to make it through the 5 innings, and his inability to get deeper into games (just 12.1IP in 3 starts this year) ultimately cost him his roster spot.

Peacock (0-1, 6.00) has also struggled this year.  He has allowed runs in all 3 of his appearances this season. In 9 IP, he has almost as many walks (8) as strikeouts (10).

I spoke with Peacock before the game, and he said he was stretched out innings wise and ready to make the move to the rotation should he get the call.

In 14 starts last season, Peacock was 5-6 with  5.00 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, walked 33 and struck out 73 in 75.2 IP.
