Peavy was blasted for six runs on four hits, walking five and striking out three over two-plus innings of a 13-1 loss to the Mets on Friday night.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peavy (1-2) logged a couple of scoreless innings before the dam burst in the third. He faced six hitters in the inning - all of which reached and eventually scored - before departing. He then watched as the bullpen coughed up six more scores in a 12-run inning. Peavy was coming off his best start of the season, but this debacle drove his ERA back up to an obscene 8.61 on the year. He'll try to get things back on track against the light-hitting Reds in Cincinnati next time out.

Peavy earned his first win of the season Saturday against the Marlins, allowing just two runs with four strikeouts and a walk over seven strong innings.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The veteran entered the game with a season ERA of exactly nine, but he kept the Marlins at bay en route to his first quality start. Peavy has issued just two walks this season, and he proved Saturday that if he can scatter the base hits, he can still be effective. He will look to build off of this start Saturday versus the Mets.

Peavy allowed four runs on seven hits in a no-decision Monday against the Diamondbacks. He struck out two and didn't walk a batter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peavy pounded the zone with 54 strikes in his 78 pitches, but his pitches have lost some luster since his prime, and they weren't fooling the Diamondbacks on Monday. Peavy has a solid 10:1 K:BB thus far but has served up an absurd 28 hits in just 14 innings. It doesn't matter how crisp Peavy's control is if he keeps getting punished like this. His ERA sits at an even 9.00.

Peavy (0-1) gave up six runs on 11 hits and a walk while recording five strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That sounds like about your typical Coors Field stat line, but the thing is, Peavy already gave up double-digit hits in his first outing this year. His name brand will always give Peavy some extra appeal, but if you own him, use him with caution, particularly with a start against the Diamondbacks on deck.

Peavy gave up four runs on 10 hits in five innings against the Dodgers on Thursday, but escaped without a decision in an eventual 12-6 win.

Competitive Edge Analysis

A particularly hittable Peavy put the Giants in a 4-0 hole and was out of the game by the time his offense went to work turning the tide. Although Peavy had some success with the Giants in the last two seasons, he's 34 and injury-prone, and he doesn't miss bats like he used to. He'll do in NL-only formats, but it's hard to count on him in shallower leagues.

Peavy - who struggled this spring to the rune of a 6.11 ERA - finished on a high note against Oakland on Friday and will serve as the Giants' fourth starter.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Like the rest of the Giants' rotation, Peavy benefited from leaving Arizona and returning to the cool climate in Northern California. Regardless, spring training statistics should be taken with a grain of salt when evaluating veterans with job security, as they are simply trying to get their arms in shape for the regular season. At age 34, Peavy doesn't seem like a very appealing option, but he should definitely be rostered in NL-only leagues and should provide value in standard leagues in the right matchups.

Peavy could be in line for shorter outings in 2016, CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With the Giants bolstering their rotation with Johnny Cueto (212 innings in 2015) and Jeff Samardzija (214 innings in 2015), they will not need Peavy to eat innings the way he did last season. They will theoretically have fresher bullpens when his turn comes in the rotation. Despite having a 3.58 ERA, Peavy posted a 2.43 ERA through the first five innings. Manager Bruce Bochy will look to get him out of games before he gets in trouble. If this plan comes to fruition, Peavy will take a hit in terms of volume statistics (strikeouts and wins), but should have improved ratios. He is currently slated to be the Giants' fourth starter.

Peavy won his eighth game of the season Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The lone run scored on a Ben Paulsen solo shot, but otherwise Peavy was solid in his final start of 2015. When he was healthy he pitched reasonably well, so expect him to be back in the Giants rotation next season.

Peavy took a no decision despite a brilliant start Monday against the Dodgers, as he allowed one run on just three hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out four.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peavy has saved his best for last, as he now has four consecutive quality starts with a 18:3 K:BB in that span. His ERA has dropped from 4.41 to 3.66 as a result, and he now has a sharp 76:24 K:BB in 105.2 innings this year. It's a good sign for the Giants, who have Peavy signed for one more year.

Peavy pitched six shutout innings Wednesday, giving up just four hits and a walk while striking out four in a 5-4 loss to the Padres.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Peavy was great against his former team, departing after throwing 88 pitches with a 2-0 lead. Peavy has been excellent over his last three outings, allowing just three earned runs over 19 innings. Injuries have shortened Peavy's 2015 campaign -- with the Giants out of contention, the 34-year-old will look to regroup next season in his final contract year with San Francisco.
