Jake Peavy says he’s going on the DL

Merkin @ CWS:

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.”

CSN has the video (4:40).

Push through it? What could possibly go wrong?

  1. answers the rotaition question, but this makes me think that when peavy returns he won’t be able to start because of how injury prone he is. I see bulpen in his future because even though the 6 man was working, there is no need if one of those guys (peavy) will continue to get injured!

    • I find it hilariously funny and totally scary that he “wanted to push through it.”

      I agree that he’s been injury prone but how do you put a $16 million guy in the bullpen?

  2. well first of all, I wish there was a stat called fail, because juan would be leading the leauge. but we have 3 options with peavy,let his stay in the rotation which would ruin our pen over time, put him in the pen which won’t happen because of the money, or trade him to a very desperate team. maybe a package with dunn and pierre will get us something LOL.
