Peavy exited Sunday’s setback following just four innings and 75 pitches, leaving with a strained right groin. The injury will be re-evaluated on Monday, but Peavy’s postgame tone and comments made it seem as if he is likely to miss at least his next start.It’s a tough situation to deal with after Peavy fought so hard to come back ahead of schedule from surgery to repair a torn lat muscle from last July.”To battle back from what we battled back from …,” said a subdued Peavy, while standing in front of his locker. “It’d be one thing if that was bothering me.
“But for something like your legs that keep you from making your start, it’s frustrating. I’m sorry. I don’t even know what to say.” …
“I mean, with the way I feel now and the way I felt when I came out of the game, I think it’d be hard for this thing to just go away,” said Peavy, who didn’t debut for the White Sox this season until May 11 after nearly 10 months recovering from a detached lat muscle.“We’ve got amazing technology and equipment, but I think (missing his next start), it’d be a pretty safe bet,” Peavy added. “I can feel it when I walk, so I can’t imagine in four days or five days from now it being completely gone where I can go out and drive off a mound and pitch in a game. That’s just me, but certainly nothing’s etched in stone.”
‘‘I’ll probably miss more time now,’’ a glum Peavy said. ‘‘We’ll evaluate it and see some doctors, but it’d be hard for this thing to just go away. We have a lot of equipment [for treatment], but the way I feel when I walk, [the disabled list] is a pretty safe bet.’’
It depends on the beat writer!
