Watch live on CSN-TV as Jake Peavy takes the hill when the Sox are hosted by the Reds today at 3:05 p.m. CT. Look for the right-hander to throw fewer innings and fewer pitches in comparison to his Minor League start this past Tuesday (3 innings and/or 70 pitches), giving Zach Stewart ample time and opportunity to work two or three innings in relief, with Addison Reed, Matt Thornton and Hector Santiago also scheduled to throw. The White Sox are expected to throw out their everyday lineup, with the exception of Kosuke Fukudome in right instead of Alex Rios. Gameday | Boxscore

Jake Peavy says there is no way the White Sox will lose 95 games this year

Scott Reifert:

On if the team is going to lose 95 games as predicted by Sports Illustrated:

“That’s not going to happen. That ain’t going to happen, I can promise you that. We’re going to get after it.  I don’t know how many we’re going to win and how many we’re going to lose, but we’re not going to lose 95 games. This team has too much pride. We’re going to play the right way and we’re going to compete, that’s just all there is to it. We’re not going to give away games. We’re going to have some growing pains, especially with how young we are in the backend of the bullpen, I’m sure there’s going to be times that we lose some tough ones or give one away but that’s to be expected. At the same time, we have enough veteran presence on this team, guys who have been in the fire before, to lead these young guys. We got great leadership from the coaching perspective and we got too much pride, this team’s going to compete. We’re not losing 95 games, I can tell you that.”

And I was worried!

BTW, Fangraphs’ Mike Podhorzer looks what Spring Training stats matter. Hint: ERA: No. K% and BB%: Yes. And BTB’s Lewie Pollis looks to see if a teams W-L record matters.

Nate Jones hits 97mph

Scott Reifert:

It was pretty late last night, so understandable if you missed it, but Nate Jones threw the ball VERY well in his two-inning stint, striking out five and reaching 97 mph with his fastball.  It was an impressive way to end a long day.

Jones struck out 5 and walked one in the 2.0 innings he pitched. And here are the stats for the 26 year-old righty for the last 3 years:

Year Age Tm Lg Lev Aff W L W-L% ERA G GS GF CG SHO SV IP H R ER HR BB IBB SO HBP BK WP BF WHIP H/9 HR/9 BB/9 SO/9 SO/BB

UPDATE: Scott Merkin:

Jones’ primary goal this spring simply has been to come out and throw strikes, which has put him in the group with Zach Stewart, Dylan Axelrod, Brian Bruney and Eric Stults competing for the last two bullpen slots. The team’s fifth-round pick in the 2007 First-Year Player Draft also employs a bit of delivery deception to his advantage, looking something like a less polished version of Justin Masterson.

“It looks different,” said a smiling Jones of his delivery. “I go straight back instead of making the loop. But it works. As long as I keep throwing strikes, I’ll keep doing it.

“That’s something the guys kind of poke fun at me [about] a little bit. But it has always been like that.”
