Peavy to miss one rehab outing

White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy was forced to leave a rehab start early Monday night with discomfort in his lat muscle. Tuesday, he had an MRI in Chicago, which came up normal. He will miss one rehab start while hoping the "tenderness" and "irritation" in his lat subsides before returning to the hill. In the meantime, he's going to be on anti-inflammatories for a week.

Peavy, 29, will need several minor-league rehab starts before being ready to rejoin the White Sox rotation, so it's going to be at least a few weeks before they can think about having him back. He's returning from a shoulder injury, so the lat issue -- which is the muscle in the upper part of the ribcage on the back -- seems to be unrelated.

When healthy, Peavy is a very solid starting pitcher, capable of anchoring a rotation. Of course, he's only made 33 starts in the past two seasons due to injury woes. The last time he made more than 30 starts was in 2007 -- when he won the NL Cy Young with a 19-6 record and 2.54 ERA with 240 strikeouts. He's 10-6 with a 4.11 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 111 strikeouts in 20 starts for the White Sox.

OH NO--not another well conditioned PRO athlete. It is WAY to early to be filling up the DL's but baseball players are dropping like flies. Way to go all you pampered babies. MLB needs to toughen up the conditioning of these "ATHLETES".

Peavy's injury was more specific than what you describe. He tore the tendon of the lat completely off the bone -- in his shoulder. General soreness in the main part of the lat muscle is unrelated -- at least that's what is being said at this point. It's like if someone tore his Achilles tendon and then had soreness in his calf. My job is not to be a doctor, but it's pretty clear that's different.

Thanks for being so polite in the response, though!

Well Mr. Matt Snyder, please do your homework or at least get an intern to do it. Anyone who knows how to use a search engine knows that Peavy's injury was......guess what.......a torn lat muscle. Yes, that's right, Peavy completely tore his latissimus dorsi (a.k.a. the lat). This is an extremely rare injury for a pitcher and I do not remember ever hearing of a similar injury before. You think with such an extraordinary injury that is almost non-existent in baseball you would know it happened to Peavy, seeing as though it's your job.

Peavy to miss one rehab outing

Peavy & Webb had a couple decent seasons & cashed in on them.They have collected large paychecks for almost 3 years now.It seems like todays baseball players are as fragile as a dozen eggs.At some point in time they are going to have to get real jobs.I don't see that happening as long as teams keep throwing cash at them.Other players & their agents pay close attention to this and that's why guys like Drew can get 14 million a year for 5 years.If he had an injury, he'd probably get even more.Check out the contracts some players are getting.A mediocre player can command6 to 8 million a year.A lousy player can get 1 or 2 million.The best players get crazy money;Mauer & his sore legs get 23 million.
The owners don't worry about it because they know the fans will pay for all of it with ticket prices going up every year.They get 4 $ for a ten cent hotdog & 7 or 8 bucks for a cup of warm beer.The owners can afford to pay their players millions of dollars & still pocket a ton of money.
It costs several hundred dollars to take a family of 4 to a game& the owners couldn't care less.They are just as greedy as the players.
