It appears as though Jake Peavy is finally ready to make his 2011 regular season big league debut.
According to Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago, the right-hander made it through seven innings Thursday at Triple-A Charlotte without feeling any abnormal pain or discomfort in his troublesome throwing shoulder. He allowed five runs, but they all crossed the plate in the third inning and Peavy was perfect in the other six frames of the start.
The 29-year-old right-hander has been sidelined since late spring training with rotator cuff tendinitis.
Peavy posted a quality 4.63 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 93/34 K/BB ratio in 2010 — his first full season with the White Sox — but he made only 17 total starts due to injury complications.
