Merkin @ CWS:

White Sox starter Jake Peavy made another rehab appearance on Friday, pitching 5 2/3 strong innings for Triple-A Charlotte. Peavy allowed seven hits and three runs, but struck out eight batters while throwing 85 pitches, 62 for strikes.

“I gave up a few runs, a two-run homer late, but I made a lot of good pitches,” said Peavy. “I couldn’t feel any better stuff-wise. I thought I was much better than I’ve been in the past. I feel better than I have in quite some time.”

So what’s next?

“Hopefully, I have one or two more [starts] before I come back,” said Peavy. “I’d like to go in five days, and I expect my body to respond. But I think Charlotte is off Wednesday, so I’m not sure. I’ll just take it in stride. Maybe they’ll send me to [Double-A] Birmingham. We’ll see.”

Peavy’s next (last?) rehab start is Wednesday, May 4, at AA Birmingham. The Sox play at the Angels 5 days later, May 9.
