If there was an award for most likeable baseball player on the Diamondbacks roster, Peacock would surely win it, especially in 2021. The Athletic wrote an excellent piece on his journey to the major leagues and Steven Burt recapped it in his 2021 player review.
Peacock had an excellent April in 2021 and became the last pitcher in the history of MLB to get both his first hit and win in his debut, at Coors Park of all places. Let us enjoy that one more time.
The rest of the season wasn’t that great, but Peacock had his Koch-like usefulness, providing spot starts and mop up duties during the season until he was optioned to Reno.
