Is Peavy done for the year?

Leave a comment

He pitched a simulated game with no apparent hitches, but it still kinda sounds like he’s throwing in the towel for 2009:

“I can promise you this.  On Feb. 15 or whatever day it
is I report [for spring training], I’ll be in as good of shape as
anybody and be ready to pitch and expect nothing less than what I’ve
done in years, which is giving my team a chance to win and work 200
plus innings. That’s where I stand.”

The Sox really have no idea if Peavy can go for the rest of the season.  If it were me, I’d let it slide at this point and do everything possible to ensure that he’s good to go on opening day 2010.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
