Peavy Headed Back to DL


The disappointment that has been Jake Peavy continues for the Chicago White Sox, as the team appears likely to place its injured starter on the DL.

Peavy was forced to leave Sunday’s start against division rival Detroit after straining his groin.  The 30 year old gave up 6 runs in 4 innings, leading to a 7-3 Chi Sox defeat.

His postgame comments showed Peavy’s frustration.

“With the way I feel now and the way I felt when I came out of the game, it’d be hard for this thing to just go away,” he said. “We’ve got amazing technology and equipment, but it’d be a pretty safe bet (that he misses his next start).  I can feel it when I walk, so I can’t imagine in four days or five days from now it being completely gone where I can drive off a mound.”

The right hander just returned to the club May 11th.  Peavy had been out since last April after he underwent season ending surgery to repair a detached latissimus dorsi muscle.

Chicago was able to win each of Peavy’s 4 starts prior to Saturday.  On the year the former All-Star was 2-0 with a 4.66 ERA.  Over his 29 innings pitched, Peavy was able to strike out 20 while only walking 4 batters.

Peavy came over from the Padres in a deadline deal in 2009.  Over his 10 year career, Peavy is 104-75 with a 3.39 ERA.
