Is Jake Peavy Ever Coming Back to the White Sox?

At this point, we will see Jake Peavy as the starting pitcher for your Chicago White Sox. On opening day. 2018.

Seriously, I was at the game when Peavy’s detached lat injury occurred. I saw him with his shirt off in the locker room; and the sight was quite gruesome. An entire set of muscles detached and hanging from where they should be. I knew then he wouldn’t be back for the beginning of 2011.

Even though that’s what the Sox information control machine was telling us. Then it was he’d be back for the second month of 2011. And this timeline keeps shifting around. Usually moving back; and back again.

Jake Peavy heads to DL, Big Blow to White Sox Hopes?

Prior to tonight’s rain-delayed game vs. the Los Angeles Angels, the Chicago White Sox placed right-handed pitcher Jake Peavy on the 15-day disabled list with a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his right posterior shoulder and recalled right-hander Jeff Marquez from Class AAA Charlotte.

Ouch! Anything “detached” sounds like trouble, big trouble. And I have no clue what a latissimus dorsi is, but I’m assuming it’s the muscle you work when you do “lat pull-downs” at the gym.

We’re hearing 15 day DL now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Peavy gets shut down for the whole year at a later date, like last season.
