Merkin @ CWS:

According to the White Sox, Peavy left Monday’s game with muscle tenderness (irritation) in his right posterior shoulder (the lat area). On Tuesday, the White Sox flew Peavy to Chicago, where he saw team doctors and had an MRI.Everything was normal, with no signs of any problems, according to the MRI. That test was followed by a clinical exam, also proving to be very benign.The latest plan is to start Peavy on a six-day course of anti-inflammatory medication. During the first three days, Peavy will solely take the medication and won’t do any throwing. On the fourth day, he’s going to resume a throwing program.

If this plan works as laid out, Peavy would miss Saturday’s Minor League rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte. He would then go back on a regular schedule with bullpens and side sessions to prepare for his next start, which originally was scheduled for Thursday, April 28. …

No King Felix? Aww…

Kaplan @ CSN:

Baseball sources tell us that while Jake Peavy’s contract calls for him to be paid $16 million in 2011 and $17 million in 2012, plus a $4 million dollar buyout of his 2013 option year which was for $22 million, the White Sox are significantly protected by an insurance policy that was originally purchased by the San Diego Padres when Peavy signed his current three-year deal in 2009. While exact figures are not available we hear that approximately 70% of the dollars owed to Peavy are covered by insurance. Depending on the severity of his injury, that savings should allow the White Sox some flexibility if they decide to trade for another pitcher during the season.

Kenny will go after King Felix!
