Jake PeavyWhite Sox right-hander Jake Peavy is on schedule to make his 2011 debut on April 29 against the Orioles.

Peavy threw a bullpen Saturday at U.S. Cellular Field and is expected to throw about 90 pitches at Double-A Birmingham on Monday, followed by a 100-pitch outing at Triple-A Charlotte after that. If all goes well, he'd be on schedule to pitch against the Orioles at home.

"I do feel like I'm getting there, like I'm coming out of spring training," Peavy told the Chicago Tribune's Dave van Dyck. "I'm getting a good feel for my pitches, I'm starting to feel stronger than in spring training."

Peavy missed the second half of 2010 after suffering a detached latissimus dorsi muscle in his back. This spring his return was delayed by shoulder tendinitis. Om two rehab starts, Peavy's 0-1 with a 1.86 ERA in 9 2/3 innings. He pitched six innings for Triple-A Charlotte on Wednesday, throwing 72 pitches.

Phil Humber is scheduled to start April 29 and the team could send him back to a long-relief role. However, pitching coach Don Cooper said last week the team may go to a six-man rotation to add more rest for the team's starters. If Peavy started April 30 in place of Gavin Floyd, the entire rotation could get another start in before the team's off day on May 5.

Thanks For Juinxing Him

, SP CHWNews: White Sox SP (shoulder) was roughed up during his rehab start with Double-A Birmingham on Monday. Peavy didn't even make out of the first inning during the outing as he allowed three runs on four hits in just 2/3 of an inning while throwing only 15 pitches. According to the Chicago Tribune, Peavy left with some discomfort in his shoulder and will be re-examined in the coming days. Analysis: Peavy reportedly felt some discomfort in his shoulder while pitching on Monday night but details were still sketchy at this point. The team announced that he will be re-examined sometime during the next day or so but offered no other information on the matter. The right-hander appears to have suffered a setback, so Fantasy owners should continue to monitor the situation for more details as they become available. Peavy can be viewed as a viable SP in most mixed formats, when healthy.

Shame on whoever creates the website links

The Link States as FACT that Peavy will debut 2011 on April 29th

When this is all POSSIBILITY as he need to get his pitch count up in his next two starts

Please slap the web master's hand and tell him not to state faux facts on his web links
