White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy toed the rubber for a rehab start Monday night in Double-A, but he didn't last long. In fact, he threw just 15 pitches before he was pulled with discomfort in the shoulder. (Chicago Tribune via Twitter)

In addition to the discomfort, Peavy was utteraly ineffective. He only got two outs, but gave up four hits and three earned runs (MiLB.com ). He was throwing strikes (10 of 15 pitches), so it was just a case of his stuff being bad.

The White Sox haven't released any information beyond that Peavy was removed from the game with the discomfort. It could be a minor setback or a major one. We don't have anyway of knowing until he's re-evaluated Tuesday. What we do know is he won't be with the big-league club soon after this setback.

Great. We get our a$$es handed to us by the Rays and now this.

I was for the trade when it happened. Peavy for the most part stayed healthy through his career -- until he came here.  We really didn't give up that much for him. Clayton Richard?  Yeah his numbers are good -- but consider the following---(1) he's pitching in the National League (2) he's pitching in the National League West and (3) he's pitching in the most pitcher-friendly park in baseball.

Now it seems that Jake Prior is just a walking injury.  Fantastic.

We have been waiting for this guy for a while.  Spent a lot of money but i guess Chisox are pot-vested with him now.  I say shut him down until at least the break. Treat it like Tommy John.  Even if they did that his timetable would be 2012.  I believe he can come back from this but he is just going to reinjure or injure another part of his body trying to compensate.  Shut him down and start looking for a fifth starter.

Hopefully this is just a minor setback.  If not I believe the Sox should just sit him the rest of the season.  They have too much invested in Peavy to let him continue to pitch this season if he is not completely healthy.  With that being said, Humber is not the answer at the 5 spot in the rotation.  I think it's time for Sale to get into the rotation and make Humber a long reliever.  Stick with Thornton as closer because he will come out of this funk and then make Santos the setup man.
