Jake Peavy to rejoin Giants’ rotation after one more rehab start

0 Comments

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.
