Feldman struggles in final tuneup in Florida.

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Today, the Astros had two pitchers who started for Houston in 2014 appear in Sunday's game. Scott Feldman started the game and Brad Peacock continued his trek back to baseball after hip surgery. There was some good and bad involved with the outings.. The bad, they collectively gave up seven runs. The good, it's only Spring Training (or at least thats what I keep telling myself).

Positives

  • Luis Valbuena and Evan Gattis were each 2-for-4 in Sunday's game. Gattis added a double.
  • Jed Lowrie was 1-for-2 with a double.
  • Chad Qualls, James Hoyt, and Will Harris combined for 4 scoreless innings in relief with six strikeouts, 3 walks, and 2 hits.
  • Brad Peacock returned to live action for the first time since hip surgery this offseason, he felt no pain after his appearance.

Negatives

  • Scott Feldman struggled again this spring, giving up three runs in 4.1 innings. Feldman has given up 11 runs over his last three appearances (10.1 innings). He gave up seven hits including a Chase Headly home run, two walks, and struck out two. One run scored on a wild pitch before Feldman we removed.
  • Brad Peacock struggled, allowed back-to-back doubles, a wild pitch, and two walks before being replaced by James Hoyt.
  • Jose Altuve, George Springer, Jason Castro, Colby Rasmus, and Robbie Grossman were all 0-for-3 on the day.
  • Luis Valbuena's fielding error led to a run in the six inning.

The Astros play the Blue Jays at 5:05 PM CT on Monday.
