Jake Peavy to return on Wednesday (May 11) in Anaheim?

Padilla @ ESPN:

“I think he’s coming here [Friday] or [Saturday], and then we’ll have a sideline and see,” pitching coach Don Cooper said. “Nothing is definite. We haven’t sat down and spoke about it. But it looks good for the 11th [of May].”

and what happens to Phil Humber?

“We’ll figure all that out,” Cooper said. “Nobody is out. Who knows? We got some off days there. We might give some guys extra rest here and there, but nobody is out. We haven’t gotten that far. We’re here [Friday] playing [Felix] Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners and we got an off day six days from now.”

Thats J.J.’s suggestion too. Spot starts to give Peavy breaks.

Ozzie says Humber will stay in the rotation:

“He’s staying in the rotation,” Guillen said after Humber received a no-decision with two runs allowed over seven innings in a 3-2 loss to the Mariners on Friday night. “He has to stay. I don’t think we are going to see anything different. When Jake comes in the rotation, we will talk to [general manager] Kenny [Williams] and Coop [pitching coach Don Cooper] to see what we are going to do. But this kid has earned and deserves to be in the rotation.”

  1. that’s very wierd, because he injured himself initially against the halos, and his first spring training start was against the angels too. and now that he’s officially back, it’s against the angels… not that it’s a huge deal, because Humber has been outstanding!!!

      • makes me think that jackson might be on the trading block, maybe get something out of him from a team desperate for another starter.

          • he is very agressive and sometimes it doesn’t pay off! jackson is just so inconsistant

  2. well, now what do we do about the rotation? I think peavy should pitch out of the pen for a while to see how he does… no need to rush him back into the rotation because of humber being as good as he has been. that doesn’t look like the route they are going with though…

    • I don’t see why peavy should go to the pen. he did his rehab starts. put him in the rotation.

      • I agree that he should be in the rotation too but are we really going to have a 6 man rotation… who’s going? I for one like what jackson brings but don’t think he’s consistent enough… buerhle on his free agency year might be traded but I hope that doesn’t happen. danks and floyd are too good to deal away too, that’s why I think it will be jackson… but they are all great starters who could help any team. what do you think?

        • I agree. I see Jackson being traded.

          Kenny knows he won’t be able to re-sign him so he’ll be traded. Danks is probably gone too, if Kenny sees he can’t re-sign him.
