Jake Peavy, who hit the disabled list with a strained groin after coming off from an extended absence and making five starts, isn't pleased about heading out on yet another rehab start.

‘‘I begged to get out of a Charlotte trip,’’ Peavy, told the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘‘But [White Sox GM Kenny Williams] said, ‘You won’t go at the same speed in a bullpen session as you would in a game. I want you to have to cover first. I want you to exert the same energy at Charlotte before I activate you.’ ­Kenny’s the boss.’’

Peavy will undergo a MRI on his groin strain Monday before being cleared for duty, at which point he will have to report to Charlotte. He's been limited to throwing while sitting in the trainer's room since suffering the injuy June 5, so has been dormant for a while.

‘‘We just want to keep the arm in shape, but they don’t want me using the legs at all,’’ Peavy said. ‘‘I don’t want to take too much time [off] because the arm gets out of shape.’’
