here’s Peavy’s final line:

Peavy, J 3.0 1 0 0 1 5 0 0.00

Carlos Torres replaced Peavy prior to the top of the 4th inning.

From Phil Rogers’ post:

Peavy said before the game he expects to pitch twice more on his rehabilitation assignment, first next Tuesday — most likely for Charlotte at Durham or at Double-A Birmingham — and then on Aug. 23, most likely for Charlotte at Gwinnett. That would put him on target to make his Sox debut Aug. 28 at Yankee Stadium.

UPDATE: From Phil Rogers’ column:

His fastball hit 93-94 m.p.h. on some stadium guns, and he says he expects to have 96 at his disposal in the near future.

UPDATE #2: whitesox.com:

Of his 43 pitches, some were clocked at speeds of 91 and 92 mph. He said when he’s in peak form he expects to reach the mid-90s. “I threw every pitch I had — fastball, cutter, curveball, slider, changeup,” he said. “The ball was coming out fairly good. I don’t feel like I’m as strong as I’m gonna be.”

UPDATE #3: Gonzales:

a scouting report on Jake Peavy’s performance Thursday night revealed that his fastball was clocked from 89 to 94 mph, averaging at 91. His slider was clocked at 82, his change-up at 84 and cut fastball at 85. Peavy threw first-pitch strikes to five of the 10 batters he faced. He threw his third and final inning out of the stretch.
