Jake Peavy notches eight strikeouts in latest rehab start

1 Comment

According to Kevin Allen of ESPNChicago.com, Jake Peavy struck out eight batters while allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings in a minor league rehab start with Triple-A Charlotte last night.

It was his first outing since leaving a rehab start with Double-A Birmingham last Monday due to discomfort in his surgically-repaired lattisimus dorsi area.

Peavy threw 85 pitches while allowing eight hits — including a home run — and no walks.

“I gave up a few runs, a two-run homer late, but I made a lot of good pitches,” Peavy said. “I couldn’t feel any better, stuff-wise. I thought I was much better than I’ve been in the past. I feel better than I have in quite some time.”

Jeremy Linn of CSNChicago.com reports that Peavy will make another rehab start on Wednesday, this time with Double-A Birmingham, before potentially rejoining the White Sox during a road series against the Angels from May 9-11.
