JAKE PEAVY. C+. . RHP. San Francisco Giants

Jake Peavy, for all his community outreach and charity activity, just didn’t have the type of year the Giants expected. He battled, which is a testament to his character. He just didn’t have it this year, and the numbers show it.

In his 31 appearances (21 starts), Peavy amassed a 5.54 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. Not only were those number sky high, his opponent’s batting average was .282. Only Cain had a higher batting average against. He lost his rotation spot, and rightfully so. It’s clear Peavy’s time with the Giants is slowly coming to a halt.

He’s a fantastic clubhouse guy, and a great teammate. However, that can hold true while simultaneously being a below average pro. He’s going to have to do something to figure how to increase his longevity in the game, or his time as a Giant seems to be on its last legs.
