Jake Peavy began this year on the disabled list following setbacks in his recovery from shoulder surgery, but the rehabbing former Cy Young winner threw a 59-pitch simulated game yesterday and is now scheduled to start an actual game Friday at Double-A.
Scott Merkin of MLB.com notes that Peavy said previously he’d want to throw 100-plus pitches in back-to-back outings before rejoining the White Sox’s rotation and he’s slated to throw around 75 pitches Friday, suggesting he’s at least three rehab starts from coming off the DL.
For now Philip Humber is filling in for Peavy as Chicago’s fifth starter, but thanks to off days the White Sox are able to skip his turn the first time through the rotation. Peavy has been sidelined since July 6 of last season.
