MLB Injury News:
Baltimore Orioles general manager Dan Duquette is always
looking for ways of improving his club, and the team has been tied to starting pitching and an impact bench bat recently. One National League GM told Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe that the O’s are specifically seeking a “veteran,
battle-tested pitcher to really finish off their staff,” which he believes
makes Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy and Philadelphia Phillies
southpaw Cliff Lee potential fits for Baltimore.
The unnamed NL GM went as far as calling Peavy a “great fit”
for a team like the Orioles. While he’s currently dealing with injury issues,
Peavy could become a hot commodity over the summer if the White Sox elect to
sell. The Phillies look like they could also become sellers as July 31st approaches, and Lee is arguably their biggest trade chip.
Still, Cafardo notes that money is always an issue with the
O’s, and this could hamper a deal involving either Peavy or Lee. Peavy’s deal
is guaranteed through 2014 with an option for ‘15, while Lee is locked up
through ’15 with an option for ’16. Peavy will earn $14.5 million next season,
and Lee is set to make $25 million per year over the next two campaigns.
Baltimore could certainly use a top-of-the-rotation starter
to pair with Jason Hammel and Wei-Yin Chen, but they continue to be hesitant to
spend on players outside the organization. It will be interesting to see if the
O’s hold tight while their young arms – including Dylan Bundy, Kevin Gausman,
Chris Tillman, Jake Arrieta and Zach Britton – continue to grow, or if they
elect to acquire a proven starter to plug into their staff.

Jake Peavy threw a bullpen session on Monday and is expected
to make the start on Wednesday against the New York Mets. Peavy told reporters
from the Chicago Tribune,
“I really threw for the first time without it grabbing me
pretty hard. Two days ago it was still grabbing me pretty hard, and I had to be
relatively pain-free two days prior to me pitching. That was two...
Jake Peavy was scratched from his start on Monday after experiencing discomfort in his back last week but is prepared to make a start on Wednesday.
Peavy was originally scheduled to start a game last Thursday when the White Sox moved his start back four days. On Monday the 31-year-old threw a bullpen session and was given a green light by the White Sox medical staff.
The Chicago White Sox have been renowned for keeping pitchers relatively healthy in recent years, including the successful rehabilitation of former Cy Young winner Jake Peavy, who made an incredible comeback after completely tearing his latissimus dorsi tendon completely off the bone in 2010. Unfortunately, that trend does not seem to be continuing in to 2013, with Tommy John...
The Baltimore Orioles have purchased the contract of veteran starter Freddy Garcia from Triple-A Norfolk. To make room for him Baltimiore has designated pitcher Zach Clark for assignment.

The pitching situation on the south side of Chicago is becoming dire. Gavin Floyd is facing Tommy John surgery and Jake Peavy’s back is on the verge of landing him on the disabled list.
Peavy will miss his scheduled start against the Royals on Monday. Peavy was to start Thursday night but had his rotation turn bumped back a few days when the initial stiffness began.

Baltimore fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as the knee injury first baseman Chris Davis sustained in Friday's game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim does not appear to be as severe as initially thought.
Davis did some running on the field. Said everything felt good. Is wearing brace on that right knee.
