Astros pitchers Brad Peacock and Joe Smith are close to returning to the roster, while Jose Urquidy was optioned back to Triple-A. The Astros could be close to having a regular member of the rotation back. Brad Peacock is set to pitch in a rehab game for Double-A Corpus Christi on Wednesday. If all goes well, he could start Monday’s game against the Angels on regular rest.
