Video: Jake Peavy’s house looks fun

12 Comments

After Jake Peavy won the 2013 World Series with the Red Sox, he bought a Duck Boat. After he won with the 2014 World Series with the Giants, he bought a cable car. That all seemed odd until you realized that he basically lives in a theme park.

Really, his ranch/plantation/farm or whatever you want to call it down in Alabama is all about big displays, as you can see in this behind-the-scenes video of Peavy’s abode below. And no, the Duck Boat and the cable car don’t appear, but there are enough other fun things. Like his light-up bowling alley. And his old west town. And the baseball bat light fixtures which, actually, would be pretty easy to make and why on Earth have we not all made them yet?

Red Sox place Chris Sale on 10-day injured list

Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale has been placed on the 10-day injured list with left elbow inflammation, the club revealed Saturday. The assignment is retroactive to August 14. In a corresponding roster move, right-handed reliever Ryan Brasier was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket.

It’s an alarming development for the 30-year-old ace, who has been remarkably injury-free after dealing with a lingering case of shoulder inflammation last summer. While he hasn’t replicated the career-high results he delivered over the last two seasons, he still leads Red Sox pitchers with 3.6 fWAR and will head to the IL with a 6-11 record in 25 starts, a 4.40 ERA, 2.3 BB/9, and league-best 13.3 SO/9 through 147 1/3 innings. A timetable has not been given for his return, nor has the severity of his injury been disclosed. Per Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, Sale has been experiencing pain in his elbow since Wednesday and will undergo further evaluation in the days to come.

Brasier, 31, was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket in mid-July after pitching to mixed results in the majors. He currently holds a 4.46 ERA, 2.7 BB/9, and 8.0 SO/9 with the Red Sox, though his results in Triple-A — one run, one walk, and 13 strikeouts over 9 1/3 innings — suggest that he might be capable of even sharper results when he rejoins the big league club.
