    A 6-foot-3, 185-pound righthander, Peek has a clean delivery and loose, projectable frame as well as a solid track record of performance in the Big South. Peek’s best season was as a sophomore in 2018, when he posted a 3.74 ERA over 14 starts and 89 innings with an impressive 4.1 strikeout-to-walk ratio. This spring, Peek has been hit more than his 2018 season—8.7 hits per nine through 13 starts compared to 7.9 a year ago—but scouts still like his ease of operation and his stuff. Peek’s fastball has been up into the mid-90s at its best, though he normally pitches more in the 90-93 mph range with two solid secondary offerings in a big, 11-to-5 curveball and a solid changeup. Peek has shown ability to manipulate his breaking ball and change the shape depending on the situation, so some scouts are willing to project a half-grade and give him an above-average breaker in the future. While his stuff isn’t overwhelming, there’s a solid three-pitch mix, future physical projection and good strike-throwing history. All of that adds up to an intriguing arm who could go in the middle of Day 2.
