Peavy leaves game with groin injury

White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy left Sunday's game against the Tigers after just four innings. He had a terrible fourth inning, where he gave up three hits and six earned runs -- he entered the inning with a no-hitter going -- but he wasn't pulled due to the performance itself. He apparently injured himself.

Peavy strained his right groin and will be re-evaluated Monday (MLB.com via Twitter).

Losing Peavy would be a blow to the White Sox. Not only have they climbed to within a workable deficit in the AL Central, but Peavy had been throwing the ball very well of late. He worked his way back from a rare surgery -- which reattached his lat to his shoulder -- and was 2-0 with a 3.24 ERA in four starts prior to Sunday.

If there's any silver lining to the injury, it's that the White Sox are set up to absorb the blow. They've been using a six-man rotation since Peavy returned, so if he has to miss any time, they'll just go back to a five-man without having to promote someone from the minors.

Would you really count Danks in a six-man rotation? Poor guy is like the streak stopper or something. But even with a decent six man rotation, the middle relief is so spotty it looks polka-dotted.

(Jake Peavy sure has hit a run of bad luck.  I hope he eventually returns.  If not, his productivity with The Padres will, of course, define his career quite well.)

Peavy leaves game with groin injury

For those fantasy managers that have owned this guy at any point in the last three seasons this comes as no surprise.
He's still an effective if not dominate pitcher when he's on the mound but the starts are few and far between.
Clearly the White Sox know this and have known this as well, opting not to do away with their 6 man rotation, due in part to their reluctance to option Phil Humber to the minors (good idea) and it's a built in safety net. I'm surprised that more teams with ample starting pitching haven't adopted a 6 man rotation.
