“Everyone was raving, but Peavy was happy, but he wasn’t raving to me,” pitching coach Don Cooper said Friday. “We text each other back and forth, and he’s happy with what he did, he’s starting to feel better, but it’s starting to look like he’s going to need at least two more [starts] no matter how you shake it out. It’s par for the course for him to feel so good because he hasn’t been on the mound on a regular basis.”
Peavy, who was acquired from San Diego at the trade deadline, informed the club that he wants to return to the big-league level when he knows he is capable of pitching a complete game.
“He’s got a lot of pride,” one Sox official said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s more like Sept. 3.”
