After meeting with a doctor and White Sox management on Tuesday, Jake Peavy says he will need a stint on the 15-day disabled list to heal his injured groin.
The White Sox hoped it wouldn’t require a trip to the DL, but results from Monday’s MRI plus lingering soreness during an exam on Tuesday have the team thinking more cautiously with Peavy, who had offseason shoulder surgery that caused him to miss the first 37 games.
Aside from the MRI, Peavy went through treatments on Monday until 30 minutes after the club’s 3-1 win against the Mariners.
“I can tell you I feel a lot better, but I just saw the doctor and think we have to go on the conservative route,” Peavy said. “Obviously, I wanted to push through it and do what we needed to do, but I think we’re looking at the disabled list just because of the MRI results and how sore my exam was with the doctor. [It’s] disappointing, no doubt. I was feeling good and beginning to climb with my arm.”
Push through it? What could possibly go wrong?
