Whew, when I first read that Jake Peavy was headed to the DL, only the worst thoughts crossed my mind. I was glad to find out that his trip is due to a groin pull.
At least I figured out why Peavy looked so horrible in the 4th inning against the Tigers on Sunday.
It’s a great move for the Sox, who have to be extra cautious with Peavy. Peavy over compensated with his ankle injury when he arrived from the Padres and tore the Lat muscle, so any twinge and Peavy will be out.
I wouldn’t expect a huge year from him anyhow. 7 wins, and I think they’ll consider it a a good season. Yes, I know they are paying him millions of dollars, but at this point what can you do.
Mark Teahen is back. He is another of the Sox trades/free agent signees that hasn’t worked out. Peavy, Dunn and Teahen really haven’t lived up to expectations.
