San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy experimented with a four-seam changeup during his spring outing Monday, March 23, and he also has been trying a new splitter, with limited success, in camp. "I'm going to throw the kitchen sink at them," Peavy said. "I've watched guys in the league reinvent themselves. I watched Roger Clemens go from a four-seam (fastball)-and-curveball guy to sinker-split. I've watched guys grow as the game changes. You feel like if you can do different things to combat your opponent, why not?"
Fantasy Tip: Peavy, 33, is nearing the end of a successful career, so many fantasy owners probably aren't selecting him in standard 12-team mixed leagues. He was surprisingly better, though, after moving to San Fran from Boston in 2014, and he can still be useful in the right matchups despite a declining K/9 rate. Peavy is worth considering at FantasyScore if the matchup dictates.

San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy lost roughly 10 pounds in the offseason in order to be more nimble on the bases now that he's back in the National League.
Fantasy Tip: At age 33, Peavy is on the very edge of fantasy value in mixed leagues. He went 7-13 with a 3.73 ERA in 32 combined starts with the Boston Red Sox and Giants last year. A horrible start in Boston was saved with his move to the hitter-friendly confines in SF. However, his days of dominance are over, and if he's not spot on with his location, he can find himself in trouble. Peavy is mainly an NL-only commodity, and he can be useful in daily games in the right matchups.
