Peavey has been on the prospect radar for a long time. He played in the 2000 Little League World Series, hit 90 mph as a 14-year-old and was a member of Team USA's 16U team in 2004 and the 18U team in 2006. He was a Top 200 talent coming out of Hudson's Bay High in Vancouver, Wash., in 2007, but fell to the Yankees in the 24th round due to signability. Last year, as a draft-eligible sophomore, he went in the 32nd round to the Astros. While many of Oregon State's pitchers have spun their wheels this spring, Peavey has been the most consistent. His fastball sits in the 88-92 mph range and touches 93. He has a slider that at times shows hard, two-plane break, though it can flatten out. He doesn't throw many changeups. Peavey gets ahead of batters and struggles to put them away and gives up a lot of two-strike hits. He doesn't have a lot of deception, often leaves the ball up in the zone and struggles throwing his fastball for strikes in on righthanders. Teams that like him project him as a mid-rotation starter, but teams that don't see him as a sixth- or seventh-inning reliever. He is a Boras Corp. client, but shouldn't be a particularly tough sign this time around.
