Peacock, even though he didn't have a good 2012 season, was still the top ranked A's pitching prospect, and should at least pan out as a solid pen arm.
Stassi was the top rated A's catching prospect.
That sounds like a good haul to me.
The wild card in this deal is Rodriguez, who stands to benefit greatly from a move to a pitcher's park.
For me, a DH, a relief pitcher and a backup catcher are all roster filler. These pieces can be picked up rather cheaply off the waiver wire these days.
