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.
