Giants pitcher Jake Peavy will make one more rehab start for Triple-A before rejoining the starting rotation, CSN Bay Area’s Alex Pavlovic reports. Peavy hasn’t pitched since April 17 due to a back injury that had been bothering him even in spring training.
Teammate Matt Cain, dealing with a strained flexor tendon in his right elbow, is also one or two rehab starts away from rejoining the rotation. Ryan Vogelsong and Chris Heston could be jettisoned from the rotation in favor of Peavy and Cain.
Peavy, 34, had allowed eight runs in 7 2/3 innings in his only two starts this season. Cain has yet to pitch this season.
On Sunday evening, the defending World Series champion Washington Nationals unveiled their championship rings online. The Nats took down the Astros in seven hard-fought games last October to win their first Fall Classic in franchise history, with starter Stephen Strasburg winning MVP honors.
As the video highlights about the ring, the Nationals honored “Baby Shark,” a children’s song that became part of the team’s identity last year thanks to reserve outfielder Gerardo Parra. The ring also has all kinds of mementos referencing the Nationals’ triumphs throughout the years, including a reference to 2006, when the Lerner family bought the franchise.
It is a shame that, due to the global pandemic, the Nationals haven’t been able to properly get their rings like past championship winners. But they will, in due time. For now, the players can look forward to receiving their rings in the mail.
