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.
