Originally written July 10, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Following yesterday's simulated game, Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy told the team that he was hoping to be activated from the disabled list this weekend to start Sunday's contest against the Philadelphia Phillies. While Peavy feels ready to return, his next step is expected to be a rehab start on Sunday, not an appearance in the majors. The veteran is anxious to rejoin the White Sox, but he told Scott Merkin of MLB.com that he'll defer to whatever course of action the team thinks is best. "I'm going to hold on to it until I get on that flight. You know me," said Peavy with a laugh, referring to his preference for pitching in the games that count. "But I certainly respect [White Sox general manager] Rick [Hahn] and the front office and the coaching staff. Whatever they think is best, at the end of the day, I'm going to have to bow to that." During yesterday's simulated game, Peavy threw 76 pitches. Manager Robin Ventura said the session went well, noting that the right-hander made it look "pretty free and easy." The skipper continued on to say that there was no "wincing or extra stretching guys do when they're coming back," indicating that the discomfort has subsided, at least for the most part. Peavy is recovering from a fractured rib. At this point, it's unclear if he'll need more than one rehab start before the White Sox are comfortable activating him. Prior to hitting the DL, the 32-year-old posted an ERA and WHIP of 4.30 and 1.164 over 11 starts spanning 67 innings. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
