Jake Peavy makes his return

Peavy says he’s at about 80% of his San Diego form. And he wants to reach 93-94 mph by July. He should’ve earned the win tonight but the Sox left too many runners on base. Thankfully Paulie’s athleticism came through! The Boxscore says:

5/11:

Chi White Sox IP H R ER BB SO HR ERA
Peavy 6.0 7 4 4 0 4 0 6.00

Totals 10.0 9 4 4 2 5 0 4.13

Pitch F/X says Peavy’s slider wasn’t so good but his changeup was:

Pitch classifications provided by the Gameday Algorithm and may be inaccurate.Pitch Type LWTS correspond to how many runs were likely to score on a particular pitch based on average run expectancy when each pitch was thrown and what happened as a result. Negative scores indicate more effective pitches.Time to Plate is the time, in seconds, that it takes an average pitch of this type to reach the plate. This is strongly correlated with velocity, but also factors in movement.
