Peavy's Struggles Continue in Bullpen
After he struggled as a starter, the Giants moved Peavy to the bullpen earlier this month. He hasn't been any better in that role, posting a 6.75 ERA in eight relief appearances, but he was going to get the start on Saturday with Matt Cain still on the disabled list.
The injuries to San Francisco's starting rotation are just part of the problem for this team in the second half.
Peavy seemed to resurrect his career with the Giants after they acquired him in a trade during the 2014 season. He helped the team win the World Series two years ago and posted a 3.58 ERA in 19 starts last season.
This year, Peavy's age (35) and mileage on his right arm have caught up with him. The Giants still have a strong trio atop their rotation with Madison Bumgarner, Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija, but the team has to go deep into the vault just to get through the days when those three aren't on the mound.
