Jake Peavy, Chicago White Sox Would-Be Ace, Leaves Rehab Start Early
Jake Peavy suffered another setback in his bid to return from a detached latissimus dorsi muscle, which seems to be exactly as horrific as it sounds according to most reports.
Peavy, who also has dealt/is dealing with rotator cuff tendonitis on the comeback trail, left his Double-A Birmingham start after recording just two outs and heads back to the doctor's office for re-evaluation Tuesday. The right-hander hasn't pitched for the Pale Hose since last summer and it doesn't appear as if he'll be joining Ozzie Guillen's squad anytime soon.
And that's more grim news for a Chicago club that started hot, but has run aground recently.
The ChiSox rocketed out of Spring Training by winning seven of 11 games and were sitting pretty in the American League Central on April 12th. Since that day, the team has dropped five in a row and now finds itself looking up at everyone else in the division except the scuffling Minnesota Twins.
Worse, the pitching staff has coughed up 27 runs during the streak so it certainly could've used the potential boost provided by a former NL Cy Young Award winner like Peavy.
Alas, it looks like the White Sox will have to find that kick in the pants from somewhere else.
Or keep waiting...and losing.
