Things are looking up for Jake Peavy.
The White Sox right-hander is already a lock to open the season on the 15-day disabled list because of rotator cuff tendinitis in his throwing shoulder, but he should be back in action by mid-April.
According to Doug Padilla with ESPN Chicago, Peavy paid a visit to a specialist on Wednesday afternoon in Arizona and was told that his recent run of discomfort is not related to the major lat surgery that he underwent last July. Furthermore, no structural damage was found in his right shoulder.
“I saw Dr. Romeo today and believe structurally everything is fine and intact and this is just that little minor blip on the radar,” Peavy relayed to Padilla. “If I get on the mound by the end of the weekend that would really be the equivalent of just missing a start.”
That “minor blip on the radar” talk is comforting. Now let’s just hope that it turns out to be true.
