White Sox starting pitcher Jake Peavy was originally slated to start Sunday against the Tigers. Instead he's been pushed back to Tuesday. Philip Humber will get the nod Sunday for the White Sox. Peavy has reportedly admitted he hasn't bounced back as quickly as he'd like from injury (ESPN Chicago).

The move might be cause for a bit of alarm for Peavy, as he had a rare surgery in the offseason to reattach his lat muscle. He was expected to be ready much earlier than he was, but, again, this type of surgery is very rare. Peavy is 4-3 with a 5.27 ERA. He's been stellar a few times but unable to maintain consistency. One thing is for sure, if Peavy is a bulldog on the hill: If he could will himself to stay healthy, he would.

Peavy's start pushed back to Tuesday

"..expected to be back much earlier than he was?", really?  The doctor's that performed the surgery last August didn't expect him to pitch until the second half this year; he's been actively throwing in games since spring training, with some setbacks.  Please report facts.
