In which Jake Peavy’s doctor can see Peavy returning in the beginning of May

Gregor @ DH:

According to Dr. Tony Romeo, who performed the radical surgery to repair Peavy’s detached latissimus muscle at Rush University Medical Center last July 14, don’t expect the right-hander to be on the mound in April.

“I think we know how competitive Jake is and he still wants to be able to play from the beginning of the season,” Romeo said in a phone interview Monday night. “But as I said last year after the surgery, when there is any type of tendon injury around the shoulder, the return is going to be close to one year.”

… “I could see him pitching with the White Sox at the beginning of May.”

If that happens, Peavy would miss his first five starts — with Phil Humber filling his slot — and possibly debut against the Orioles on May 2 at U.S. Cellular Field.

According to Romeo, who is flying to Glendale, Ariz., Tuesday morning to personally examine Peavy, that’s the best-case scenario.


  1. wow… as of right now, the trade with the padres to get peavy was a bust! clayton richard would have been better and younger. I think aaron poreda was in the trade as well, another young prospect that was traded away and for what? at the time it was a smart move, but peavy is just damaged goods. even if he does get healthy, he won’t ever be the guy kenny traded for. I hate to say that but the way I see it, it’s the truth.

    • I’m not so mad about the players we gave (Richard/Poreda/Carter/Russell). Richard has a nice career in SD but he can’t do the same in Chicago. Look at his Home/Away splits. Even if he becomes a nice player that’s OK (trade). You don’t get something for nothing. What I didn’t like was the huge salary the Sox took on. $15, $16, $17, $22 ($4 buyout) million salaries. SD was desperate to unload Peavy’s salary and Kenny took on the whole thing like a dummy.
