Found June 27, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
PLAYERS: Jake Peavy
TEAMS: Chicago White Sox
Jake Peavy has cleared the first major hurdle on his path to recovery.  The former ace suffered a fractured rib earlier this month and has been allowing the bone to heal while resting.  He has now reportedly moved on to playing some light catch. Peavy threw for about seven minutes, about 75 feet. "It was good," peavy said. — Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) June 26, 2013 Generally speaking, the next step will be for Peavy to increase the distance from which he throws.  Once he's comfortable at increasing distances, he will be allowed to pitch from a mound.  There are a few steps after that before he can even go out on a rehab assignment, so don't expect Peavy back until sometime after the All-Star break. Peavy had a bounce-back year in 2012, but he back-slid to less than impressive numbers this year.  In 2012, his first full year back from surgery to repair a detached lat muscle, Peavy went 11-12 with a 3.32 ERA.  So far this season, he is sitting on a 6-4 record with a 4.30 ERA. Blogging for Susie The 32-year old righty first began feeling pain in his rib prior to his June 4th start, but the pain in the rib area forced him from that start and landed him on the DL.  He was diagnosed with a rib fracture.  This isn't the first time Peavy has fractured a rib.  He suffered a similar injury while celebrating the Padres 2005 National League West Division Championship.   Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Paul Konerko out of action until Sunday

Source: Kyle Rivas/Getty Images North America Paul Konerko will not return to the lineup for the Chicago White Sox until at least Sunday. Tightness in the back of the 37-year-old first basemen has kept him out of action since last Sunday. On Thursday Konerko received six injections and had an MRI done on his back. Konerko passed along via CSN Chicago that he would not attempt to...

Dunn Heating Up at the Right Time

We’ve discussed a lot in the recent days and weeks who probably is and who should be on the White Sox’ trade block. And, hint hint, we’re nowhere near done. Although June, like May has been a mess for the Sox, there have been a few bright spots from certain individuals. Since it looks like the team is going to try to deal just about everybody they can, it looks like if...

Ramirez delivers in walk-off win

Alexei Ramirez singled in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth after Chicago committed a costly error in the top half of the inning, and Chris Sale struck out 13 batters in eight innings to lead the White Sox over the New York Mets 5-4 on Tuesday night. The Mets scored the tying run with two outs in the ninth on a defensive miscue. Pinch hitter Daniel Murphy hit a popup in...

Foul ball scares female White Sox fan behind home plate

Two blonde female Chicago White Sox fans were deep in conversation behind home plate with the man next to them when New York Mets CF Juan Lagares fouled off a pitch that hit the Miller Lite sign in front of them.  The two girls jumped and you can see one of them scream and then cover her mouth.  The man next to them jumped as well but not nearly as much as the two women.  This...

Indians in Chicago for doubleheader

Unless things don't turn around soon, the underachieving Chicago White Sox could be in for a shakeup. Looking to bounce back from another frustrating defeat, the White Sox hope for something positive during Friday's doubleheader against the visiting Cleveland Indians. Chicago (32-43) felt it was capable of challenging for the AL Central title this year, but it's last...

During Wednesday’s game between the New York Mets and Chicago White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field, a woman seated behind home plate, who wasn’t paying attention to the action right in front of her as she was jibber-jabbing with the man seated next to her, had the ever-living crap scared out of her when a [...]The post Woman behind home plate jumps, screams after foul ball drills...

Trading Vets Easier Said Than Done

With the White Sox in full meltdown mode, media, fans, and bloggers have started to speculate about which members of the Sox could be sent elsewhere in exchange for younger help.  With each passing day and the losses and errors mounting up, the Sox fan base seems ready to part with anyone and everyone not named Chris Sale.  Trading veterans for prospects seems to be what...

Pitcher Spotlight: Chris Sale

I’d like to introduce a new feature at FanGraphs: the pitcher spotlight.  While I will continue to try to highlight unique skills or aspects of the sport in other pieces, Major League Baseball is overflowing with quality pitching and interesting prospects worth addressing.  To cover a wider range of pitchers, these posts will be a regular but relatively brief look at a pitcher’s...

Hawk Harrelson ******* & Moaned & ******* after the Sox let the Mets tie it in the 9th

Chicago White Sox radio man Hawk Harrelson was not too happy after Gordon Beckham collided with Conor Gillaspie last night, allowing Daniel Murphy to reach (only) first and the Mets to tie things up... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com

Chicago No Hope Part 1: Beckham's Bender

I often have wild premonitions about what's in store for me when I go on a road trip to see the Mets. For example, when I went to Tampa last season, I had a strange thought that I had to go down there ... needed to go even ... because if I didn't, then R.A. Dickey would throw a no-hitter and I will have missed it. (He threw a one-hitter, but you know how I feel about that...

Here’s how the White Sox blew tonight’s save against the Mets

Chicago No Hope Part 2: The Road To History Was Paved With Good Peripherals

Well, Anthony Young can sleep well tonight. Or toss and turn ... depending on how he looks at it. Shaun Marcum pitched eight brilliant innings against an offensively challenged White Sox lineup, and the Mets scored three runs with the help of the White Sox Little League defense and came away with a 3-0 victory, one that was credited to Marcum for his first of the season. Sure...

June 26: Mets 3 White Sox 0

The White Sox offense may have reached a new low tonight, getting shutout by an 0-9 pitcher in Shaun Marcum. Also, the defense may have reached a new low, as they were pretty much solely responsible for all three Mets runs in the fifth inning. It was another tough one to swallow, and it seems like every time I write the game recap, that's the case. Maybe I'm bad...

Series Preview 27: Indians at White Sox

The White Sox homestand continues this weekend with four games in three days against division rival Cleveland.  Terry Francona’s club comes in at 40-38, 2.5 games behind the Tigers in second place in the AL Central.  The Indians are on the second stop of a three city, eleven game road trip and split a four game set with the Orioles on their first stop.  Cleveland has...
