Houston Astros pitcher Brad Peacock is the most recent Main League Baseball participant to be identified with hand, foot and mouth illness.
Per Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle, Astros supervisor A.J. Hinch introduced Peacock’s analysis Tuesday, and the right-hander just isn’t with the group.
Noah Syndergaard of the New York Mets and J.A. Happ of the New York Yankees have had stints on the 10-day disabled listing as a result of virus.
Per the New York Division of Well being, hand, foot and mouth illness causes a blister-like rash and has no particular remedy.
After arising by means of the minors as a starter, Peacock has carved out a wonderful area of interest in Houston’s bullpen. The 30-year-old has a 2.98 ERA with 90 strikeouts and 46 hits allowed in 60.1 innings over 55 appearances in 2018.
Houston is tied with the New York Yankees at 90-54 for the second-best file in MLB. The defending World Collection champions have a three-game lead over the Oakland Athletics within the American League West.
