Merkin:

A start has been scheduled for Jake Peavy this Saturday, and it will take place in the Eastern Time Zone. That particular start will be made by Peavy for Triple-A Charlotte, in Norfolk, Va., marking the White Sox righty’s fourth Minor League rehab effort. Peavy basically was deemed ready to return after pitching five innings of scoreless baseball on Monday for the Knights, but he also took a line drive off his pitching elbow that temporarily delayed his comeback. “Obviously, this is a tiny setback,” said Peavy on Thursday. “I hope to get out there and make a start and be out there sooner rather than later.” Peavy originally had a side session scheduled for late Wednesday afternoon, but that session was scratched when he felt soreness in the area where he took the line drive while playing catch. He went outside and played long toss on Thursday to stretch out a little bit, and then had a live, light sideline of somewhere around 30 pitches. His performance was good enough to get Peavy on the mound, but the White Sox are playing it safe by starting him for the Knights in what looks like one last time. “Oh, I would think that it’s probably a good shot that after the next start in Triple-A, he will be pitching somewhere with us,” said White Sox pitching coach Don Cooper of Peavy. “It’s a good chance, unless something crazy happens.”
