Here’s Ozzie Guillen:
“It’s something you keep pushing and hoping for him but nothing works. Jose is going to be in the bullpen and I don’t know who is starting in his spot [Saturday]. We are in the position right now where we can’t continue to handle guys and hope they get it done. I think enough is enough. I feel for him, but our job is to win games and not to do people favors. We cannot handle this anymore.”
Here’s Don Cooper:
“If (Peavy) says he’s ready to give us five, six, seven (innings), that might be enough in Kenny’s mind,” said Cooper, referring to general manager Ken Williams. “But if he can’t say that, we’ll have to go for someone else.”
BTW, Jose on his demotion:
“I understand perfectly,” Contreras said.
Peavy threw 52 of his 80 pitches for strikes at his 3rd minor-league rehab start.
Gregor says give him another minor-league start and let him debut at Sept. 4 against Boston, but don’t be surprised if he starts Saturday (or Sunday) in New York against the Yankees.
DeLuca says Peavy’s velocity topped at 94mph, and he took a line-drive to his elbow but it only nicked him. DeLuca, also, says Peavy will petition to start Saturday in New York.
Don Cooper says the decision is Peavy’s.
