Will Carroll on Jake Peavy’s tendinitis

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ March 24, 2011 7:15 pm


Jake Peavy, White Sox (rotator cuff tendinitis, 4/15)

Peavy had made such a solid recovery from his lat reattachment that it seemed he was going to make the Opening Day roster, if not the Opening Day start. Peavy had no setbacks and showed no loss of velocity or … well, any issues. But here at the tail end of camp, Peavy’s come up with rotator cuff tendinitis, something that’s not uncommon, especially given that Peavy hadn’t pitched for a while. The question is whether this is simply getting back into pitching and having a common issue along the way, or whether this is related in some way to the surgery. No one seems to think this is from a change in mechanics for Peavy, who looks the same to me and to several scouts who have seen him this spring. Reports are that the tendinitis is “concerning, but not serious.” The Sox will likely have Peavy on a course of anti-inflammatories as they ease his work back. Even if this stays as minor as it appears, a DL stint is likely as it would both save a roster spot and allow Peavy to make a rehab start in the minor leagues. Watch to see when Peavy gets back on a mound for more of an indication as to when he’ll be back in the Sox rotation.

UPDATE: Here’s a nice article on Peavy’s injury by Amy Nelson.



  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.

      PS. I tried moving your comment here

      • well from what I saw from humber yesterday, I am very nervous about the 5th starter situation. it was a terrible outing, and every time I thought he was settled down, he would lose composure. sale, pena, or harrell should be in line, not humber.
