Peavy Suffers Setback

Kenny Williams shocked the world by making a last minute deal to acquire Padres ace and Cy-Young award winner Jake Peavy at the trading deadline. While it sounds all well and good it came with a catch. Peavy has been on the disabled list June after injuring his ankle while running the bases.

Peavy has had two rehab outings since he joined the Southsiders. In his first outing he was brilliant and in his second not so much. That is where the problem comes in. By all accounts his ankle has healed nicely, but due to the fact he wasn't able to do any kind of baseball activities for a good two months it has delayed his return.

According to the Arlington Daily Herald there is no set date for Peavy's return. However, he is hoping to return sometime in September between the 4-7. The Red Sox are in town and it would give the Southsiders a nice boost if he was able to make his return then.

For the meantime Peavy will continue to rehab at Triple A Charlotte. The Sox will continue their series with the Baltimore Orioles tonight. Jon Danks (10-8) will take on the O's David Hernandez (4-5). Game time is 6:05 p.m. CT.
