Doesn’t look like Peavy will start for the Sox this weekend

Jake Peavy’s attempt at throwing a bullpen session was cut short after he felt stiffness in his right elbow while playing catch before Wednesday’s batting practice session. Peavy, who is attempting to make his first start for the White Sox on Saturday at Yankee Stadium, will attempt to throw a shorter bullpen session Thursday than what was scheduled on Wednesday. But pitching coach Don Cooper thought Peavy might be better served with another minor league start, rather than try to push toward Saturday. …

More Coop:

“To tell you the truth, sitting here right now, I’m believing, me, and me only, we haven’t discussed it with Ozzie or Kenny, but my opinion, right now the best way to take care of Jake Peavy and do the best for Jake Peavy is to continue to play it by ear, see what he can do [Thursday], make one more start in the minor leagues,” Cooper said. “To me then, we’ve taken care of everything the best you can take care of it. If you want to call it crossing the t’s and dotting the I’s, you can call it that. We’re doing it the right away, we’re not going to dick around with this.”

Levine says that according to team sources the chances of Peavy starting Saturday are remote. Merkin adds that Herm is hard at work with Peavy.

Couldn’t we have designated Clayton as a PTBNL in the July 31 trade and send him to the Padres at the end of the season?
