Astros' Morton looks keep Tigers' bats quiet

HOUSTON -- It was inevitable that, following the splendid performance of right-hander Brad Peacock in his spot start on Monday night, Houston Astros manager A.J. Hinch would be asked to address the potential for Peacock to join the rotation on a full-time basis.

With right-handers Mike Fiers (1-2, 5.14 ERA) and Joe Musgrove (3-4, 5.63) scuffling in the back end of the rotation, Peacock (2-0, 0.87) seems a viable option as a replacement once ace Dallas Keuchel returns from the 10-day disabled list.

Peacock had been strong in relief this season before working 4 1/3 scoreless innings to lead a combined one-hitter against the Detroit Tigers on Monday.
