But terming Monday’s 40-pitch effort against [Jordan] Danks, Brandon Short and Stefan Gartrell as “a big step,” Peavy seemed encouraged that his recovery from season-ending surgery for a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his right shoulder was pointing toward no time away from the team when this promising campaign begins.

“Jumping on the mound vs. hitters, putting more on the ball, I threw some breaking balls for the first time,” said Peavy, explaining Monday’s effort at what he believed was about 75 percent off the mound with the standard screen in front of him. “I threw fastball, changeup.

“But I was putting more on the ball today than I had in previous times off the mound, so it was obviously a nice climb. We did that without any kind of pain or any setback. I was no different than any other guy.”

UPDATE: Here’ is video (1:24) of Peavy.
