Jake Peavy to return from disabled list for Wednesday start

Leave a comment

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen confirmed to Mark Gonzalez of the Chicago Tribune earlier this evening that Jake Peavy will indeed return from the disabled list to start Wednesday’s game against the Angels.

Peavy threw 100 pitches while giving up five runs over seven innings last Thursday in his final minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte and was scheduled for a bullpen session prior to tonight’s game against the Angels.

This will be Peavy’s first start since undergoing surgery to repair a detached lat muscle near his throwing shoulder last July.

Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports that Peavy’s replacement Phil Humber will remain in the rotation to start Friday’s series opener against the Athletics while Gavin Floyd will go Saturday. The White Sox haven’t announced anything beyond that, but they are currently kicking around the idea of implementing a six-man rotation.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
