Jake Peavy’s rehab assignment will be longer than expected


Jake Peavy gave up six runs on nine hits in 4.2 innings Wednesday at Triple-A and his rehab assignment for a back injury is going to be longer than the Giants had hoped.

Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com reports that Peavy will likely remain in the minors for at least another 10 days after Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted that the 34-year-old right-hander is “not quite ready” to come off the disabled list.

Peavy has been on the DL since mid-April and claims to be fully healthy now, but Pavlovic says the Giants want to see better results at Triple-A before putting him back into the rotation.

Video: Matt Harvey was a guest on “The Daily Show” with lifelong Mets fan Jon Stewart


Jon Stewart’s version of “The Daily Show” is coming to an end in a few months, but the lifelong Mets fan found time to have Matt Harvey on as a guest Thursday night … while being very, very protective of his surgically repaired elbow.

Based on that interview, I’m now hoping Stewart chooses Lucas Duda as his final guest.

Daniel Nava goes on the disabled list with a sprained thumb


Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava is headed to the disabled list with a sprained thumb, which Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports “he’s been playing through for a while.”

Nava has struggled all season, hitting just .159 with zero homers in 27 games. Nava was previously a solid part-time player for the Red Sox, hitting .278 with good on-base skills and a .768 OPS from 2012-2014.

Boston has no shortage of outfielders, so by the time he gets healthy the Red Sox may not have much playing time available for Nava.
