Jake Peavy, who bought a duck boat least year when the Red Sox won the Series, was reported a couple of weeks ago to be in the market for a San Francisco cable car if the Giants won. That’s going down, and TMZ reveals Peavy’s plans for the thing:
We spoke with Jake’s brother Luke Peavy, who tells us the whole thing is still a “work in progress” — but they’ve already got the plans drawn out.
Here’s the deal … the Peavy family owns a 5,000-acre estate in Alabama called Southern Falls Plantation — and the goal is to ship the cable car over to the property.
“Once it’s in ‘Bama, it will be turned into a mobile bar in Southern Falls,” Luke tells us.
Next year I hope Peavy goes to the Angels, wins the World Series and promises to buy the Queen Mary.
The Mariners have activated third baseman Kyle Seager from the 60-day injured list, per a team announcement on Saturday. Dylan Moore has been optioned to Triple-A Tacoma to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Seager, while right-handed reliever Sam Tuivailala has been placed on the 60-day IL (ruptured Achilles tendon).
Seager, 31, suffered a partial tear in the extensor tendon of his left hand during spring training and has yet to make his season debut. He underwent surgery on the tendon in mid-March and has had a long and slow recovery since then, eventually working his way up to a few starts in Triple-A last week. Through his first nine games in the minors, he batted .256/.310/.308 with two extra bases, seven RBI, and a .617 OPS over 42 plate appearances.
Any progress is good progress, though, and the Mariners will no doubt be looking to Seager to uphold the .250+ average, 3.0+ fWAR totals of seasons past as he works his way back to a full workload — especially with fellow third baseman Ryon Healy headed to the 10-day IL with a bout of back inflammation. Seager will start at third and bat sixth when the club faces off against the Athletics at 4:07 PM EDT on Saturday.
