says pitching coach Don Cooper:

According to Coop, Peavy needs at least two more rehab starts.

So, no August 28 start in the majors. Great…

UPDATE: Here’s Coop:

“We have at least two more [rehab starts] scheduled, Aug. 23 and 28. Much of the stuff we are going to be doing is listening to him. Right now, he seems like he’s par for the course. He’s feeling good and trying to turn up the intensity. He doesn’t feel the command and the intensity are meeting. That’s kind of to be expected. That’s what you are trying to get accomplished, to get the intensity and the stuff up. We’ve had two trips at it. I don’t care who you are or how good you are at anything you do. You take the amount of time he took off, it’s going to take a little while to get it back. I’m not sitting here biting my nails and waiting for him because we are going to do this right. Whether he comes back on the 30th or the 3rd or the 8th, I sit here right now and I’m going to let that unfold.’’

I guess the best we can hope for now is September 2 at the Sox last game in the Metrodome.

UPDATE #2: Looks like Peavy will face Tim Hudson on Sunday.
