According to the White Sox, Peavy left Monday’s game with muscle tenderness (irritation) in his right posterior shoulder (the lat area). On Tuesday, the White Sox flew Peavy to Chicago, where he saw team doctors and had an MRI.Everything was normal, with no signs of any problems, according to the MRI. That test was followed by a clinical exam, also proving to be very benign.The latest plan is to start Peavy on a six-day course of anti-inflammatory medication. During the first three days, Peavy will solely take the medication and won’t do any throwing. On the fourth day, he’s going to resume a throwing program.
If this plan works as laid out, Peavy would miss Saturday’s Minor League rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte. He would then go back on a regular schedule with bullpens and side sessions to prepare for his next start, which originally was scheduled for Thursday, April 28. …
No King Felix? Aww…
